Nepal and India sign MoU to mutually recognise vaccine certificates

 November 29, 2021  

Kathmandu — India and Nepal have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to mutually recognise the vaccine certificate in order to make travel easy for people.


In a recent COVID travel update, India and Nepal have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to mutually recognise the vaccine certificate in order to make travel easy for people. This move will ease travel-related issues for fully vaccinated people of both the countries.

On Tuesday, India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the Ministry of Health and Population of the Government of Nepal signed a MoU to make travel easier. A press release said that the MoU between the two countries is quite an important step in easing travel for fully COVID-19 vaccinated travellers of both the countries, Times of India reported.

Nepal has approved both the India-made vaccines Covishield and Covaxin. Any Indian citizen fully vaxxed with these two vaccines is allowed to enter the country, but the last dose of the vaccine must be taken at least 14 days before entering Nepal.

On the other hand, the Nepal government had also removed the mandatory quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers. The step was taken to boost tourism in the country. Not only this, the government had also resumed the on-arrival visa facility.
