NATTA expresses concern over RT-PCR report requirement with photo identification
About the new standards of passenger arrival to Nepal, NATTA expresses its deep concern regarding the recent notice of negative RT- PCR Report with photo identification issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN). The standard rule of passengers having the negative RT-PCR report with their photo identification in the report appears over-going. In foreign countries, there is no provision of providing the PCR Report with photo identification and such rules may complicate and dissuade travelers wanting to visit Nepal due to the extended rule. Likewise, in the given standard, there is no ease mentioned for fully vaccinated travellers.
NATTA demands that the government ease standards for travellers who are willing to travel to Nepal with only negative RT-PCR report within 72 hours and no compulsion of quarantine for the fully vaccinated travellers (Nepalese/Foreigner).
