Visa Requirements

A valid passport is required for all nationals. A single entry visa can be obtained on arrival in Kathmandu after completing the relevant application form and presenting it with two passport photographs and a fee of US$25. Should you choose, it is possible to obtain a visa prior to travel from any of the Royal Nepalese Embassies or Consulates abroad but we recommend obtaining a visa on arrival as it is a quick and straightforward procedure. Multiple entry visas valid for 15 days cost £20 and 30 days costs £35. These can be obtained at the Royal Nepalese Embassy by sending an application form together with your passport and two photographs.

If you would like to use a visa service to process your visa on your behalf, we recommend CIBT Visas. They have expert knowledge in visa requirements, and are dedicated to ensuring that obtaining your visas is as efficient and hassle-free as possible.
