Non resident Nepalese NRNs Eligible For Visa On Arrival
The Department of Immigration arranged for non-resident Nepalese to obtain a Nepal visa upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). Non-resident Nepalese refers to the following:
- A Nepal citizen who is not residing in the country;
- A person who previously held Nepal citizenship; and
- Foreigner who came from Nepalese origin
The Immigration announces a list of nationals who can get visas once they arrive at TIA. Council Ministers discussed temporary exemptions for visa requirements in certain nationalities on December 25, 2020. These are the travelers who can avail on-arrival visa starting January 23, 2021:
- Diplomats or people who work for an international non-governmental organization (INGO)
- Staff of the United Nations can also get visas without any restrictions.
- Traveler's with NRN Identity Card
The amendments from visa requirements were due to the COVID-19 travel restriction, and it aims to make convenient arrangements for eligible travellers who want to visit Nepal. In the meantime, the on-arrival visa exception is only possible if the point of entry is at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). Otherwise, travelers have to process their visas before their arrival date. The same protocol applies for land travel, and they would have to seek approval from the Nepal Government. Health declaration is mandatory upon entry. Travelers must conduct a PCR west 72 hours from the date of their departure. They must obtain a negative PCR test and comply with ten days mandatory quarantine.
