UNHCR maintains direct contact with the Government both at the central and local level. It is an active member of a number of joint UN coordination mechanisms in the country and leads several thematic coordination mechanisms.In Nepal, persons of concern to UNHCR include refugees from Bhutan, Tibetan new arrivals, urban refugees and asylum‐seekers.
Nepal has not acceded to the 1951 Refugee Convention or its 1967 Protocol, and has no domestic asylum legislation. The Government has adopted different approaches towards various refugee populations.UNHCR facilitates the safe transit of Tibetan new arrivals through Nepal to India and ensures their protection and material needs are addressed while in Nepal. For the estimated 15,000 Tibetans refugees, UNHCR continues to advocate with the authorities for their registration and issuance of documentation.
UNHCR provides protection and assistance to 550 urban asylum‐seekers and refugees in Nepal from 9 different countries. The majority are from Pakistan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Somalia. They are considered by the Government of Nepal to be illegal migrants under the existing laws.
UNHCR works with national partners to support legal awareness and activities to enable marginalized groups to acquire citizenship certificates. Legal advocacy continues together with civil society and UN agencies to promote the adoption of citizenship provisions in the new Constitution in line with international human rights standards.
