No More RT-PCR Test For Fully Vaccinated Passengers Travelling To Nepal

Nepal is relaxing its protocols for fully-vaccinated travelers. Now, international travellers who are vaccinated can enter Nepal without a pre-departure PCR test. They will only need to show proof of their vaccination certificate. Nepal is now issuing visas on arrival for fully vaccinated international travellers. The final dose of the vaccine has to be taken at least 14 days before arrival in Nepal.  People entering Nepal by road need to get a visa on arrival and also fill out an online departure form before starting the journey. Nepal has launched e-passports that will soon replace the decades-old handwritten passports in the country. These machine-readable passports will be issued in three weeks for the first time.
