Nepal's capital Kathmandu reopens hotels

Nepal is allowing the reopening of hotels in the Kathmandu valley, but other destinations in the country may adopt stricter blocks.

The number of reservations is very low, as visitors must be quarantined for 14 days on arrival, and travel is restricted to holders of work and business authorization and Nepalese on repatriation flights.

Public spaces and services are now open in the Kathmandu valley according to the latest travel notices. Residents are advised to wear a mask when shopping and to practice social detachment.

The ban on international commercial flights has also been lifted, but at the moment, only Nepalese, international passengers who fall into certain categories of employment and their dependents, will be allowed to travel to Nepal.
