Now, the Nepal government has decided to uplift many restrictions on specific things from September 17th. 2020 that was previously implemented.
Transportation throughout the country has been allowed following an odd-even number plate system according to the respective date. Local flights have resumed their servicers while international flights are still to be operated. International flights are supposed to be resumed by the second week of October but there is no certain news regarding that matter.
Condition for Tourism Industries in Nepal
Restriction in tourism has been also uplifted from September 17th, 2020. All the bookings have been reopened and the government has started to issue trekking and traveling permit.
Along with tourism, hotels and restaurant have also started their services as per the government’s decision. While bars, clubs, gym, party hall, education institutions, and other crowd oriented places are still shut down.
Note: Even though the lockdown has been uplifted, there is no chance to be careless. The government has made it compulsory to follow health-related protocols and safety measures while operating any kind of public activity.
Self-Protection is the way of protecting the whole world.
