Nepal visa info
Nepal welcomes tourists and makes it easy to enter.
Nepal visa on arrival
At the airport there are several visa choices:
+ 48 hour visa (plus 24 hours free) for $5
+ 15 days for $25
+ 30 days for $40
+ 90 days for $100
Payment by cash ONLY in any major currency (change is returned in rupees), and you need one passport photo too.
Going to Tibet? Tourists are not permitted to stay more than 150 days in Nepal during one calendar year (1 Jan to 31 Dec).
These are obtainable from the Department of Immigration in Kathmandu or Pokhara.
+ 15 days is $30, additional days are $2 per day
and 15 days is the minimum. Payment is in rupees only, calculated at the government exchange rate.
Trekking and TIMS permits
If a permit is required, we take care of them, unless otherwise stated. Trekking permits are needed for Manaslu, Dolpo and Kanchenjunga treks and need 2-4 passport photos. TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) permits are needed for the teahouse trekking regions.
National park/conservation area entry fee
We pay for this, unless otherwise stated.
Transiting via New Delhi
If you are transiting New Delhi en route to Kathmandu then staying in the 2011-new Eaton transit hotel may be the best option, rather than getting a visa so as to leave the airport.
