KATHMANDU, Jan 14: Health precautions have been tightened at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), which attracts more domestic and international passengers. In order to control the risk of the Covid-19 pandemic, the airport has tightened the 'visitors' entering the airport in full compliance with the health standards. Passengers traveling on international flights have been tightened on visitor passes for farewell or welcome. Such passes have been given only to the most needy.
Bhola Prasad Guragain, general manager of the TIA, said that strict adherence to health standards has been made effective by tightening the visitor's pass to control the possible risk of Covid epidemic. "Passports for visitors to the airport are not completely closed, except for the most urgent ones. Access to the airport is tightened. This is expected to reduce congestion at the airport to some extent and also reduce the risk of epidemics."
As per the decision of Covid-19 Crisis Management Coordination Center (CCMC), it was decided to make it mandatory for the passengers arriving at the airport from January 22 to be involved with the covid vaccination card. Passengers on international flights are required to report a 72-hour PCR negative report. In the case of domestic flights, from the 7th of August, passengers will be able to travel only by showing the vaccination card.
The Department of Immigration has also requested everyone not to travel abroad unless absolutely necessary. The department has issued a travel advisory on January 12 requesting those who plan to travel from Nepal to countries at risk of infection with the new variant, not to travel unless absolutely necessary.
