The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation is planning to waive off seven-day quarantine for tourists set to arrive in Nepal from October 17. Following criticism from stakeholders, the ministry is preparing to review its protocols for foreigners who are interested in visiting Nepal for mountaineering and trekking.

According to an official who is assigned to review the protocols at MoCTCA, the ministry is working to carry out instant antigen test for COVID-19 for foreign tourists upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport.

“Visiting tourists who carry a negative polymerase chain reaction test report can be allowed to walk free after carrying out the antigen test,” he said, adding that it would certainly address stakeholders’ concern.
