Posted in 23rd Sep, 2020

COVID-19 has been known to each and every corner of the world and we all know how it has been affecting the lives of people. Nepal has been shut down since March 2020. A major trekking season has collapsed (March-May). Although, the country was locked down for almost 5 months Government has finally decided to run International Flights to bring stranded Nepali citizens abroad since the beginning of September.

At this moment, the government has decided to make an international flight available to travelers having Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) report Negative. There is still a dilemma with the quarantine system after the arrival but, the tourism industry has been pressurizing to skip the quarantine of 14 days with the availability of a fresh PCR report of 72 hours.
