For example, a tourist visa costs $50 for 30 days; an Indian citizen can get a student visa for $200; an American citizen has to pay $100 for a tourist or business visa.
- Visa on arrival: If you choose to come in person, there will be an additional fee of $50 per person (children under 12 years old are free).
- Visa renewal: You need to revisit our embassy within three months after your approved date, like any other tourist visa applicant would do before they enter Nepal and apply again with their passports along with supporting documents such as bank statements showing recent activity, which are required when applying for renewal if not already available during initial application process earlier mentioned above.”
How to get a visa on arrival.
The following documents are required to apply for a visa on arrival:
- A passport is valid for at least six months after departure from Nepal.
- A return ticket with sufficient funds (at least USD$ 500).
- A passport-size photo of yourself taken within the last 6 months. You can upload this photo here when applying for your visa.
- An application form signed by you or your authorized representative. (If you’re applying in person)
Also, you should bring copies of all supporting documents listed below with photocopies made on white paper only:
Copy of Nepali Passport OR Indian Passport OR Afghan Visa OR Iranian Khat Visa OR Pakistani Visitor/Tourist Card etc., whichever is applicable. If an applicant holds more than one type of passport, then only one copy must be submitted along with all other supporting documents.
Where to apply for a visa.
To apply for a tourist visa, you must visit the Nepal embassy or consulate or apply online [eVisa].
If you are staying in Kathmandu and want to apply at the Nepalese Embassy, contact them on their website [link].
You can also apply through an agent such as Perfect Visa or Tourist Visa Agent, who will help with all the paperwork needed for your visa application.
There are two ways in which you can get your visa:
Apply at Kathmandu’s airport upon arrival if you arrive by air; this is called ‘Visa on arrival. The application process takes around 2 hours, but it’s free (except if there is a delay). You will need a passport photo; copy of passport; 1 passport size photo taken within the last 6 months; copy of flight ticket with original stamp/receipt showing date + time + flight number + carrier + name & address details etc.; proof that you have sufficient funds for travel expenses abroad such as cash cards etc.
Visitor Types and Visa Requirements.
A visitor’s visa is required for citizens of most countries.
It allows you to enter Nepal, stay for up to 30 days, and leave without a stamp on your passport.
If you’re travelling to Nepal with the sole purpose of doing business or volunteering, then a Business Visa might be correct for you.
This type of visa allows visitors from certain countries (including those without an embassy or consulate) access into the country for business purposes only.
If your trip involves any employment with an organization with offices inside Nepal, they will likely require their Employee Permit (EP).
This document will grant you entry into Nepal with no other restrictions except having proof that this work arrangement exists between both parties involved before applying to Nepalese immigration authorities. Still, it does not guarantee employment upon arrival either!
If you are travelling to Nepal from outside of the country, there are many ways to get a visa.
You can apply for your visa on arrival at the Kathmandu airport or the border crossing with India.
Also, if you have an onward ticket and plan to travel through Bhaktapur (Nepal), then it might be possible for you to get a tourist visa there instead of applying for one in Kathmandu (or vice versa).
If all else fails:
- If nothing works out as planned and your trip ends up being cancelled because of weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances beyond your control…
