Niraula, a former Joint Secretary of Home Affairs, is expected to restore stability and address disruptions in immigration-related services caused by the leadership absence.

Additional changes include the reassignment of Gogan Bahadur Hamal, former chief of Tribhuvan Airport Immigration Office, to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority. Nar Bahadur Thapa will take his place.
