UNHCR's major role in Nepal is to seek durable solutions for approximately 98,900 Bhutanese refugees. Pending a durable solution, UNHCR continues to provide for their care and maintenance in eastern Nepal.
The influx of Bhutanese refugees into Nepal began in late 1991 and peaked in 1992. This influx was caused by the strict implementation of Bhutan’s citizenship policy and other relevant factors and developments in the country. UNHCR and WFP started a care and maintenance programme and the distribution of food to 80,000 refugees in 1992 upon the request of the Government of Nepal. Refugees who arrived prior to 1 June 1993 were granted "prima facie" refugee status by the Government. UNHCR continues to assist newly arrived Tibetans for their transit through Nepal. UNHCR assisted 2,319 Tibetans in 2000. Tibetans are provided protection and assistance in the form of shelter, food, health care and transport while in Nepal. There are a small number of individual asylum seekers of various nationalities that are of concern to UNHCR in Nepal.
