After almost five months of the shutdown, the Nepali Government plans to reopen the country for the international tourists from October 17, 2020. The decision to this effect was taken during a recent cabinet meeting based on the recommendation of the Covid-19 Crisis Management Committee, according to nepalsansar.com

The Nepal Government has decided to resume tourism and hospitality sectors, and the concerned hotel and tour operators should adhere to the safety protocols and guidelines once they resume their businesses. Meanwhile, the foreign visitors are expected to produce a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours before departure to avoid any quarantine or self-isolation upon their arrival in Nepal.

The resumption of tourism will provide a huge relief to the local communities, including travel agents, guides, Sherpas, and mountain workers, who earn a living from mountaineering and trekking activities. As per the reopening plans, the trekking and mountaineering groups can take foreign clients to the mountains from October 17.

Recently, the Nepali Government has permitted 18 international visitors, including Bahraini Prince Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, to climb Mt. Manaslu and Mt. Lobuche. The country hopes that their expedition will promote Nepal is conducting tourism activities with adequate health and safety protocols.
