Recent data has shown that the crime committed by Chinese nationals in Nepal is rising.

Over the past four years, a total of 837 Chinese individuals have been deported from Nepal due to their involvement in various illegal activities, Pardafas reported.

Based on statistics from the Immigration Department, the deportations were as follows: 427 individuals in 2019, 226 individuals in 2020, 34 individuals in 2021, and 150 individuals in 2022, all found engaged in unlawful actions within the country, the Nepali newspaper reported.

According to the Nepal Police, Chinese nationals have recently become increasingly involved in online fraud activities within Nepal. In addition, there have been cases of Chinese individuals being apprehended for various other criminal offenses, including ATM fraud, gold and dollar smuggling, as well as illegal wildlife and human trafficking.

Over the past seven years, the recorded number of Chinese nationals engaged in criminal activities in Nepal has surpassed 1,500. Particularly concerning is their misuse of tourist visas to carry out these unlawful acts.
