The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has painted a bleak outlook of Nepal’s tourism sector, warning of a high probability that many tourism-related small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will go out of business and the tourism industry will face a significant loss of human capital.

In a report titled ‘COVID-19 and The Tourism Sector: A comparison of policy responses in Asia Pacific’, PATA has said that despite the re-opening of domestic tourism, it is unlikely that the tourism sector will stay afloat until international visitors return.

But this could take time as ‘the demand for international tourism in Nepal has dried up due to a rising number of community transmissions of COVID-19 in the country’.
