As you will appreciate we are desperate to enable our volunteers to return to Nepal as soon as they wish to. However, it is Nepalstill illegal to volunteer in Nepal without a work permit and it is still a lengthy, costly and problematic process – which realistically precludes our volunteers from travelling there. Sallie is working closely with various people in Nepal to try to resolve this problem – but it’s taking time!

But please do not let this stop you visiting Nepal – Nepal needs tourism much more than aid now – and the vast majority of Nepal is safe to visit.

If you are on Facebook and interested in how important tourism is to Nepal – https://www.facebook.com/groups/NepalTourismRecovery/ (created by our partner Raj) – you need to be logged in to see it!

We are optimistic we will resolve the work permit issue soon – so if you are keen to get back – or visit for the first time – please do let us know.
