Travelers must follow these guidelines to ensure their safety and the safety of others:
Travelers should have a vaccination record showing successful completion of the full COVID-19 vaccine course at least 14 days before entering Nepal.
Negative COVID-19 test report
If a traveler is not fully vaccinated or has not completed the full vaccination course at least 14 days prior to arrival, they must provide a negative COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR, Gene Expert, True NAAT, or a WHO-accredited test) taken within 72 hours of boarding from the first airport or within 72 hours of entry if entering through a land border. This requirement does not apply to children under 5 years old.
Testing and isolation
If travelers develop any COVID-19-related symptoms while visiting different destinations in Nepal, they must undergo a COVID-19 test and self-isolate if the result is positive.
Additionally, travelers should take the following precautions to protect themselves and others:
Wear a face mask
Wearing a mask can help reduce the transmission of the virus, especially in crowded or enclosed spaces.
Maintain hand hygiene
Travelers should frequently wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content to keep their hands clean and minimize the risk of infection.
Having hand sanitizer readily available can help maintain hand hygiene, especially in situations where soap and water are not easily accessible.
Remember to always check the latest information and guidelines from the Government of Nepal and other relevant authorities before planning your trip, as protocols and requirements may change over time.
