Nepal Telephone Service -- International Restored

I have seen a news story that Nepal has restored international
telephone service. I guess that anything starting with the
international access code during the outage got blocked (I don't know
how many digits had to be present before the blockage occurred). What
would have happened for calls from elsewhere to Nepal?

(In 1990 during Persian Gulf crisis, at least AT&T blocked calls to
Kuwait when such calls got to some international call-processing
center and the Kuwait country code was recognized.)
