Govt to waive visa fee for Chinese tourists for five months

In its attempt to attract more Chinese visitors to Nepal, the government has decided to waive visa fee for Chinese tourists for a maximum of five months.

Issuing a press statement Sunday, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that Chinese tourists would not have to pay visa fee for a maximum of five months. The government on December 25, 2015 had decided to wave visa fee with effect from January, 2016.

The government had taken the decision in line with a longstanding demand from Nepali tourism entrepreneurs, who said the move was necessary to uplift the industry badly affected by the earthquakes and the ongoing Indian blockade.
