Health Alert – U.S. Embassy, Kathmandu, Nepal
May 13, 2020

Location:  Nepal Countrywide
Event:  COVID-19 Response

The Embassy has received information that Qatar Airways is working to organize a flight from Kathmandu to Doha sometime next week.  They are working with President Travel and Tours in order to arrange the travel.  Travelers who arrive in Doha will have the option of transferring to a regularly scheduled flight from Doha to the US.  Our understanding is that Qatar Airways is currently only serving two U.S. destinations:  Dallas/Ft. Worth and Chicago, although it is uncertain at this time whether both will be an option as a US destination or not.  If you are interested in exploring the possibility to participate in this flight, please contact President Travel and Tours immediately through the contact information provided below:

If you are able to get through by phone, the agency will be able to provide further guidance about next steps.  If however, you need to email the agency, it may assist them if you forward a copy of your passport bio page, so they can start a booking for you even before you reach them by phone.  If you decide you would like to visit the office on Darbar Marg in person, a link to a map is provided.
