The United States has lifted travel warning issued to non-essential staff and their family members in its Nepal mission.
The State Department has permitted all non-essential mission personnel and their families to return to Nepal, a notice issued by the US Embassy in Kathmandu.
Concerned about their safety, the Department on April 24 had ordered all non-essential mission personnel and families to leave Nepal amidst the pro-democracy uprising.
The Consular Section, which resumed certain services on May1 will return to full operations on Monday, including visa interviews for non-immigrants, the notice said.
The US government last month had also closed down various mission including American Centre and Consular Section in view of the escalation of violence due to the intensified anti-King protests.
