CMIR drafted the standard bilateral agreement on March of 2016 on behalf of the The government of Nepal (GoN). The objective of the new BLA was to create a framework of cooperation between the government of Nepal and the host country to protect and ensure rights of the migrant workers. The new draft incorporated the issues missing in the previous agreement, such as issues related to recruitment, employment and safety of migrant workers in the destination country. It also touched upon the migrant workers’ rights to retain their legal documents, to be allowed to visit Nepal in every two years, and anytime in case of emergency. Likewise, receiving of proper medical treatment as prescribed by the doctor in cases of injury or illness, which was not specified in the previous agreement, was put in the new BLA. For that, from 2016, the Government of Nepal has strongly taken a diplomatic approach to maintaining the bilateral relations.
