NEPALISE VISA INFORMATION

There are three ways to get your tourist visa for Nepal:

  1. Apply upon your arrival at Kathmandu’s international airport

  2. Apply in advance and pick-up upon your arrival at Kathmandu's International Airport (recommended)

  3. Apply at one of Nepal’s foreign consulates from abroad, in advance


We recommend Option 2 – applying in advance 15 days before your trip and picking up your visa upon arrival in Kathmandu.


APPLY ONLINE (IN ADVANCED)

You can apply for a tourist visa online within 15 days of your date of arrival in Nepal.

The submitted application will remain in the system for 15 days. After 15 days, the application will be deleted automatically from the system.

You’ll need the address of your hotel and a recent digital version of a passport-sized photo that you can upload to the application.

Once you’ve submitted the form, print out the confirmation receipt and show this to the Immigration officer upon arrival along with your passport and the proper amount to pay for your visa.

PRO TIPS

  • Fill out your disembarkation card on the plane so you can quickly move through the queue in the arrivals’ lounge.

  • It’s a good idea to bring 4-5 passport photos from home for your visa & trekking permit applications, and official documents;

  • Kathmandu's airport has bank counters where you can exchange currencies;

  • It also has a photo booth to create passport-sized photos, if you forgot to bring some;

  • Having a couple photocopies of your passport is always handy while traveling;

  • Bring extra USD cash and convert a small amount at the airport to pay for your taxi, where you can convert the rest at a better exchange rate.
