The Department of Tourism has identified 78 hotels in Kathmandu and Dhulikhel where Nepalis and tourists can stay in quarantine for five to ten days after arriving in Kathmandu.
The statement comes as the temporarily halted flights begin to resume.
The government had previously named eight hotels in Kathmandu for travellers flying between Nepal and India under the Air Bubble programme, but it has now added 70 more hotels on the list. Seven five-star hotels, three four-star hotels, seven three-star hotels, 51 tourist-standard hotels, and two resorts are among the new establishments approved for quarantine.
Except for star-rated hotels, all hotels are allowed to charge up to Rs 3,000 per day for three meals and accommodation, including all taxes and service costs. Star hotels are free to charge according to their own policies.
Hotels that do not follow the requirements will be fined under the Infectious Disease Control Act of 1964, according to the department.
