Kathmandu, December 18
The Immigration Department had issued notice only on Friday stating that one has to stay in the hotel quarantine for seven days when coming to Nepal from 67 different countries. However, on Saturday, Immigration posted a notice on its website stating that the decision has been postponed for now.
Travelers arriving from abroad will not be subject to mandatory quarantine until further notice unless a reason is given for the postponement of the decision.
Earlier, in a statement on Friday, the Council of Ministers had said that travelers entering Nepal from 67 high-risk countries would have to stay in Hotel Quarantine for seven days at their own expense.
Travelers from those countries will have to test through the RT-PCR method. The department had said that even after the negative result, they would have to stay in the home quarantine for 7 days, and if the positive report is received, they will be sent to the designated isolation center or hospital.
