Earlier Nepal government has announced 2020 as a visit year and started preparation but since Corona outbreak get major impact in tourism, Nepal government defers the visit year. But Nepal  government has not banned people completely for travelling to Nepal. Those people who still want to visit Nepal they can visit.

    Recently, Government of Nepal has issued an urgent notice on March 12 late night announcing that temporary suspension of on- arrival visa for all countries till April 30 2020. Not only they’ve suspended the on arrival visa but also they’ve cancelled all spring mountaineering expeditions, including Everest ascents till April 30. Before this outbreak, people who would like to  visit Nepal could get on-arrival visa in immigration department in airport. But now government has suspended on-arrival visa policy temporarily until new notice is published.

    So, people who are interested can still visit Nepal during this time but we recommend to postpone your travel plans to Nepal till the effect from this Corona outbreak minimises.  The on-arrival visa suspension policy will be effective from March 14, 2020. Before this latest notice, on March 3 they had issued the notice to ban on-arrival visas only for the nationals of following countries:

    People’s Republic of China, including Special Administrative Regions
    Islamic Republic of Iran

    And also, after a few days of the notice issued on 3rd March, they added up three more countries to suspend on-arrival visa due to the high influence of Coronavirus (COVID-19). For these three countries, the temporary suspension of 0n-arrival visa policy was effective from 13th March 2020.


    However people who wants to visit Nepal from these countries can still obtain visa and visit Nepal. For this applicants for all countries are required to submit a recently issued health certificate with the visa application in Nepali Missions abroad. So, people who still wants to visit Nepal are heartly welcome.
