Nepal Rastra Bank had issued a notice stating that digital transaction systems are not allowed to operate in Nepal without the proper registration. It was issued when hotels, restaurants, guest houses and travel agencies were found to be accepting payments through WeChat Pay and Alipay. The notice was published because such transactions didn’t follow foreign exchange regulation and Nepal Rastra Bank didn’t have accurate details of such digital transactions.
