For entry into Nepal, the ‘Tourist Visa on Arrival’ is the primary visa option available. Even if your purpose for visiting Nepal is not tourism-related (such as sightseeing, travel, trekking, or visiting friends/family), you should still obtain a ‘Tourist Visa’ to enter the country. If your purpose changes, you must adjust your visa category by obtaining the necessary documentation from the Department of Immigration.
Here’s a Nepal Visa Info and a straightforward guide to acquiring a ‘Tourist Visa on Arrival’ at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) if you haven’t obtained a visa before boarding your flight:
1.Fill out the ‘Arrival Card’:
Complete the ‘Arrival Card‘ upon arrival. You can also fill out the ‘Tourist Visa’ form online before your trip through the official Department of Immigration website. If you choose this option, you’ll receive a submission receipt with a barcode. Be sure to print it and bring it along. This receipt remains valid for fifteen days.
2.Make Payment at the Bank:
Proceed to make the required payment at the bank based on the visa duration you need (15/30/90 Days). Collect the payment receipt. Although various payment methods are available at the visa fees collection counter, it’s advisable to carry cash for added convenience.
Visa Fees at Entry Points:
15 Days: 30 USD
30 Days: 50 USD
90 Days: 125 USD
3.Visit the Immigration Desk:
Present your online form, payment receipts, and passport to the immigration officer at the Immigration Desk. The officer processes your visa application and issues the visa once satisfied.
Tourist visa extension is possible for a minimum of 15 days at a fee of USD 45, plus USD 3 per additional day.
If the extension request is delayed by less than 150 days, an extra USD 5 per day is charged as a late fine.
Requirements to Obtain Visa on Arrival:
- Passport-sized photos and preferably US dollars as foreign currency.
- Your passport, with a validity of at least six months, and an available visa page.
- Indian citizens, while not requiring permits, should present documentation verifying their nationality for entry into Nepal.
Remember that visa regulations can change, so ensure you have the latest information from the official sources of the Department of Immigration or the Nepalese embassy/consulate before your trip.
