Home to beautiful sceneries, mountains, forests and friendly locals, Nepal is calling you for a peaceful retreat, and you must go.
The Himalayan nation has waived off mandatory pre-departure RT-PCR test for fully-vaccinated tourists. They just need to carry a vaccination certificate. Only the passengers who fail to submit this certificate will have to carry a negative report of a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of departure.
