MESSAGE FOR TOURISTS
MESSAGE FOR TRAVELLERS #strandedinnepal or #stayinginNepal
If you are a traveller and are still in Nepal, it probably means that you cannot leave the country at this point, for some reason or the other, or you might have decided not to leave. You are now stranded here until commercial flights resume out of Nepal or until your embassy charters another flight. Here is a suggestive list for you!
1. YOU MUST SHELTER IN PLACE and avoid all unnecessary movements. During the lockdown, and for as long as it lasts, you must remain inside and avoid contact with other people. You should only go out for medical emergencies or to get cash. Use one of the many delivery systems to obtain food and supplies. RESPECT ALL INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE NATIONAL AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES.
2. YOUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO KNOW WHO AND WHERE YOU ARE. The most important thing right now is to register your whereabouts with your respective Embassy or Consulate. You can do this via email (find the list of contact on this website). Remember that if your country does not have an embassy here, you should register with your responsible embassy abroad (likely in New Delhi). Be sure you provide a reliable way to contact you (email preferably). Get a SIM card if you don’t already have one.
3. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR VISA. If you were legally in the country on March 21st when the lockdown started, you are not in trouble. When the immigration office reopens after the lock down you can regularize your situation. The government has indicated that it would provide amicable resolution including extending your existing visa for at least an equal amount of time at no charge.
4. You are expected to pay for your accommodation/food/flight. IF YOU RUN OUT OF MONEY you are expected to seek help from friends and family first. They can deposit money in your home account, and you can withdraw it with your ATM card. If you cannot get help, your embassy or consulate is unlikely going to be able to assist, but you could at least send them a message to indicate that you are in distress. Your LAST RESORT is to talk to the police out on the street (Tourist police if they can), and they will put you in touch with various government assistance programs. Remember that at that time you will be treated just like any other Nepali.
The Nepal Tourism Board Crisis Cell has of course, not stopped helping out, and will be a good source for accurate information during this constantly changing times and guide you. Feel free to reach out!
YOU ARE A GUEST IN THIS COUNTRY and you must behave in an irreproachable manner. Of course, it goes without saying that YOU MUST RESPECT THE LOCAL POPULATION AND THEIR RIGHTS.
