Nepal Visa Information

  • Last Updated on Dec 6, 2022

When visiting any foreign country visa is the most important travel document. Before traveling to a foreign nation, you should get a visa for which you must have the appropriate legal documentation and a passport. If you wish to travel to Nepal but are not an Indian citizen, you must first obtain a visa.

Each client must present a diplomatic passport with at least six months of prior validity at the Nepalese consulate in their home country or the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu with a copy of the passport-sized photo. You can get a Nepal Visa at a reasonable cost.
