Kathmandu, Nepal, October 2, 2020: With the motive to attract the international tourists, particularly those who are interested for mountaineering and trekking in Nepal, the government of Nepal is going to waive off seven-day quarantine for foreign tourists.

The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) has been mulling the idea for instant coronavirus (COVID-19) tests at Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), the one and only international airport of Nepal, with the motive to allow walking freely the tourists after carrying out a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test report.

Earlier, the government had decided that foreign tourists would have to compulsorily stay in hotel quarantine for seven days after landing in Kathmandu. The government has already decided to resume commercial national and international flights from October 17.
