Apart from four Nepalese competitors, only six officials will be able to attend the Tokyo Olympics' opening ceremony, which begins on Friday.

The organizing committee has decided that only six officials from around the country would be allowed to attend the inauguration event because of the impacts of Covid-19.

As a result, just six officials from China, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and India will be able to attend the inauguration ceremony.

Similarly, only six Nepalese are required to participate.

Nepal has two swimmers, one judo player, and one shooting player competing in Tokyo at the moment.

The majority of these officials have already departed. However, the organizers' new criteria have rendered Nepali officials' plans to attend the inauguration event ineffective.

Similarly, it's likely that there may be some uncertainty over who will march to the inauguration.

The organizing committee has not placed any restrictions on the participants.

The Olympic opening ceremony will begin at 4:45 p.m. Nepali time on Friday.
