Kathmandu: Passengers traveling from Kathmandu to the United Arab Emirates are not longer required to test corona inside the airport.

The Nepal Airlines Corporation has informed that the country has brought such a rule with effect from February 15 and now the obligation to do PCR at the airport has been removed.

But PCR report tested within 48 hours is still mandatory. Therefore, the passenger will have to carry the report before the journey. Earlier, the UAE had tightened its grip on Nepali passengers after the spread of the Omicron variant.

Due to the fact that many citizens have recently completed the amount of vaccination, the countries have been easing the strictures on Nepal.
