Send Home A Friend campaign to run till 2010

‘Send Home a Friend’ and ‘Nepal for all Seasons’ campaigns will now run through 2009 and 2010 in a run up to Nepal Tourism Year celebration in 2011.

The Send Home a Friend campaign was announced in 2007 to utilise the Nepali diaspora for tourism promotion. The campaign was internationally launched in the United Kingdom on November 17. Though the campaign had arranged special facilities for visitors coming through the campaign, less than 20 visitors came to the country through the campaign in fiscal year 2007/08.

According to Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), the campaign will run through 2009 and 2010, garnering support from the vast network of NRNs and Nepal Embassies abroad. NTB will provide collaterals to the international Nepali community and friends of Nepal for effective promotion of the campaign and to promote Nepal as a premier holiday destination, gearing up for the Nepal Tourism Year 2011, recently launched by the Government of Nepal.
