The Kingdom has issued an advisory to all its citizens against traveling to Katmandu.
The advisory comes in the wake of the emergency warning imposed in some parts of Nepal due to the spread of “avian,” or bird, flu.
The travel advisory from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that all Saudi nationals should refrain from traveling to Nepal because of the outbreak of bird flu in some parts of the country.
The ministry also called on all Saudi nationals in Nepal to leave Katmandu as soon as possible.
