Kathmandu: The Ministry of Home Affairs has requested the citizens not to be lured by safe labor and employment through the visit visa.

Recently, the ministry has requested people not to go abroad on a visit visa with the intention of employment, saying that there have been complaints that lots of people have stucked abroad who had visited on a visit visa and not being able to get a job, and also having problem to return home.

The ministry has also mentioned that the Nepal government has no legal basis to provide insurance, compensation and relief for those who have gone abroad illegally and are in trouble.
