Open Visa-on-arrival service for travelers entering Nepal
Government of Nepal has decided to resume visa-on-arrival service for travelers entering the country.

The government issued an order stepping on Infectious Disease Act, 2020 to provide on-arrival visa to the travelers (belonging to countries which have provision to receive on-arrival visa) that are fully vaccinated.
