FAQs - VISA & Documents

A tourist visa is required for entering Nepal. The tourist visa can be applied for, for different lengths of stay. A visa is required for children under 10 years but no fee is charged. The entry to Nepal must take place within 6 months of issuing the visa.

The visa can be applied for upon arrival at the airport in Kathmandu. This will require payment of the visa fee (in US $, NPR or EURO), a filled-in visa application form and 1 passport photo.

If you do not wish to risk long waiting times for being issued a visa at the airport upon arrival in Kathmandu, a visa can already be applied for in advance at the Nepalese Embassy or the consulate responsible in your home country.

For further information and in particular, the visa application form, please visit the website (Department of Immigration).

The fees for the tourist visa (fees valid since 16.07.2008) are staggered as follows:
(a) 15 days (several entries possible)  $ 25 (approx. EUR 20.00)
(b) 30 days (several entries possible)  $ 40 (approx. EUR 35.00)
(c) 90 days (several entries possible)  $ 100 (approx. EUR 85.00)

An extension of the visa to a maximum of 150 days is possible (per year - January to December). The extension must be made at the Immigration Office in Kathmandu. A fee of $ 2.00 is charged in Nepalese rupees (NPR) per day of extension.
