Thursday, 23rd Sept 2021, The Government of Nepal has finally announced a piece of hopeful and consoling news which we travel agents and the travel enthusiast interested to travel in Nepal have been waiting for a long time. Finally, after a long wait, the mandatory quarantine rule of 10 days after arrival in Kathmandu is relaxed and thrown away. Along with that, the concerned authorities have also declared to resume providing the On-Arrival Visa to the travelers which were restricted since the pandemic began. Prior to this official notice, the travelers were obliged to get their entry permits from the respective Nepali diplomatic missions, and also stay in a mandatory 10 days quarantine in the government-listed hotels.
However, the easing of these strict restrictions does not imply to all the travelers. It is valid for only those travelers who have already received the full dosages of the vaccination against Covid, at least 14 days before their travel dates. The travelers who are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated are not able to get the on-arrival VISA and still follow the previous guidelines for getting the Visa.
While on the other hand, there are still certain rules and regulations which are implied upon the travelers despite being vaccinated.
The updated rules to be practiced by the vaccinated tourist are as follows:
The updated rules to be practiced by the non-vaccinated tourist are as follows:

Ultimately, the disrupted travel and tourism industry of Nepal is getting light of hope for recovery and reviving. While the streets of Kathmandu and the trekking and mountaineering trails should have been full of tourists in this season, there are scarcely a few foreign tourists in the Nepali territory because of the pandemic and travel restrictions. Now, with the easing of the On-arrival Visa procedure and removal of the quarantine rule, travel lovers could visit Nepal without any hassle from September 2021 onwards. After a long hectic and exhausting period of more than 2 years, the nature and travel lovers are able to explore the untouched beauty of Nepal and we at Nepal Mountain Trekkers are keenly waiting to welcome all the travel enthusiasts to Nepal for a relaxing, revitalizing, and remarkable experience of a lifetime.
