1. What to do before choosing any agencies?
First, you need to be sure about the company or agency through which you are going to undertake your journey. The basic fact to assure yourself, is to know the legality of the agency. For your kind information, Sumire Tours and Travel is a legally registered company running under the act and provision of Government of Nepal. Our Ministry of tourism: 742/056, as well as Gov Registered No:: 2110/059/60.
Many non-registered companies, as it has been reported, have been running business whose licenses have already expired and not noticed and punished in charge of the unlawful act. So much so, many examples of so-called trekking/touring agencies operated by individuals and freelancers illegally by creating their own websites or personal effort have been witnessed so far.
2. How to know whether the company is government registered or not?
We would like to draw your due attention to see the document for any government registered organization. The following document shows the validity of the organization, responsibility and credibility. If you don’t find such document, be sure that those agencies are involved in fraud. Before you join any company, ask whether they have such document or not, since many non-registered companies, as we are informed, are involved in hacking the information and cheating the tourists from foreign countries.
3. Be aware of:
Be sure about the registration of the company and its legal documents produced.
Follow the website only when you find the company is legally registered.
Be sure about the person recruited for dealing. If the person cannot produce you the original documents, instantly withdraw the dealing.
Find whether the agents you are dealing with possesses the original stamped card issued by the company.
Good luck for your safe and enjoyable trip
