Depaysemoi Administrative Nepal Passeport & Visa

Traveling to Nepal requires a visa, no matter how long you plan to stay there. We told you everything there is to know about it, including how to extend your visa once there.

How to obtain your visa for Nepal ? :

It’s possible to apply for a visa in your home country before departure by going to the Embassy of Nepal.

The easiest thing to do it, it’s right on the spot once you arrive at Kathmandu airport. A specific place is dedicated once out of the plane. The only things to expect are one to two passport-sized ID photos, the necessary cash and your passport, of course.

Attention :

Having a visa for Nepal does not allow you to go trekking, for this you must apply for a TIMS.

How much does the visa for Nepal cost ? :

The rate depends on how long you stay in the country. The minimum duration for a visa is 15 days (but nothing obviously requires you to stay as much).
Three possibilities are available to you :

You can pay in US dollars, Nepalese rupees, and even euros (normally !)

Since we were based in Pokhara, we are more familiar with this area, so the information we give you is based on our experience there.

First of all, you have to go online online on online.nepalimmigration.gov to fill out the visa extension application form. Without that, there is no point in going to the immigration office.
If it’s the tourist visa that interests you, be sure to select "Tourist Visa" and fill out the form correctly.
Once done, a confirmation is created that you must necessarily print in order to present it to the immigration office.

Attention :

The dates for the visa extension must be at least 15 days.

With this printed form, you have to present the photocopy of your passport . You'll find printers in town, or a few blocks away from the Immigration Office.

Once you have your printed visa extension confirmation, a photocopy of your passport, and the necessary amount of Nepalese rupee money, you can go to the Immigration Office.

Attention :

Do it yourself, don’t pay someone else to do it !

Where to extend your Nepalese visa in Pokhara ? :

At Immigration Office, located next to Miteri Park, 20-30 minutes maximum walk from Lakeside.
It's without an appointment, just arm yourself a little patience, because the procedure takes at least 30 minutes or more if there are people !

The office is open from Sunday to Thursday, and the afternoon hours are not always stable, we advise you to go there in the morning from 10am to be sure.
