Visa Requirements

Before applying for a visa to visit Nepal, foreigners must possess a passport or any document comparable to a passport, issued by their government, permitting them to visit another country.

A) Entry: No foreigner is permitted to enter and stay in Nepal without an official visa. Tourist Entry visas for stipulated durations can be had from the Nepalese Consulate or Embassy, immigration offices and mission offices located at the entry points of Nepal.

B)Chinese citizens are not granted visas on arriving in Nepal. They are required to apply before they arrive - at any of the Nepalese Diplomatic Missions or the Nepalese Embassy.

Pilgrims from Sri Lanka who wish to visit Lumbini will be granted a single entry visa for 15 days, at a fee of US$ 10 or an equivalent value in any other convertible currency.

Multiple Entry visa will be valid for 150 days or one visa year.

C) Tourist Visas Extension:

Tourist visas can be extended by the Immigration Office at Pokhra and the Department of Immigration (Kathmandu) for a period of 120 days. Thereafter an additional extension of only 30 days is permitted, if there are valid grounds for the extension. The authorities ensure departure from Nepal within one visa year or 150 days.

1. Tourist visa extension fee and additional late fee are as follows:

Extension for 30 days, without facility for re-entry: US$ 30 in equivalent Nepalese currency.
Extension for 30 days, with facility for multiple entry: US$ 80 in equivalent Nepalese currency.
If you already have a multiple entry visa valid for the same visa year, you will be required to pay only US$ 30 for the extension.

2. Late fee for regularizing tourist visa

For the first 30 days: US$ 2 per day in equivalent Nepalese currency
For 31days to 90 days: US$ 3 per day in equivalent Nepalese currency

3. Fee Exemption of Tourist visa

Children under the age of 10 years are not charged a fee for their visa. Children under the age of 16, with foreign passports, but born of Nepalese parents, or children whose either parent is a citizen of Nepal, are also exempted from the visa fee. A citizen of Nepalese origin who has obtained a passport for the first time from a foreign mission in Nepal is again exempted from the visa fee, until his departure to another country.
