Kathmandu: Various parts of the country including Kathmandu Valley have enforced prohibitory orders to spread Covid-19 spread following an alarming surge in cases.

Here we mention new rules required for foreigners for traveling to Nepal amidst the pandemic and prohibitory order.

At first, foreigners willing to enter Nepal need to fill the form of the Covid-19 Crisis Management Center (CCMC) after arrival.

They can also fill up an online form through CCMC website.

They will also need to present a Covid19-negative report done within 72 hours prior to their departure from the first port of embarkation.

For foreigners arriving through Qatar Airways, however, a negative report done within 48 hours prior to their departure is required.

Upon the required procedural and health checks at the airport, foreigners arriving in Nepal from countries other than African and European nations are required to stay in home isolation for five days.

Travelers from African and European countries, however, are directed towards their paid hotel quarantines by the Nepal Army.

Pre-paid taxi services authorized by the Tribhuvan International Airport are available upon arrival at the airport.

Travelers are advised to contact TIA office and CCMC for updates on arrival procedures.
