Health Ministry suspends 70 institutes’ medical test services

Ministry of Health and Population

Kathmandu, Feb 25: The Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security has taken the decision to temporarily suspend medical testing services provided by 70 health institutes for individuals seeking foreign employment.

The Ministry had issued a notice on January 26, instructing these medical facilities to comply with certain criteria. However, as they failed to adhere to the instructions, their services were discontinued.

The Ministry initiated monitoring on August 29, covering a total of 213 health institutes both inside and outside the Kathmandu Valley. During the monitoring process, it was found that 70 health institutes did not meet the specified criteria, leading to the suspension of their services.

Due to issues regarding the listed health facilities in Nepal, host countries including Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and South Korea have independently selected health institutes here to conduct these medical tests while Qatar has ensured all medical tests within the Qatar Visa Centre. #Nepal
