The visa can be requested on arrival at Kathmandu airport. To do this, bring an identity photo and:
– 25 US for a 15-day visa (multiple entries);
– 40 US dollars for a 30-day visa (multiple entries);
– 100 US dollars for a 31 to 90 day visa (multiple entries).
It is now possible to apply for a prior visa online (for arrival in Kathmandu – Tribhuvan Airport – only). This saves time compared to the previous procedure, which can take several hours.
Travelers must complete an online form – http://online.nepalimmigration.gov.np/tourist-visa – a barcode file is then generated, which must be printed. As this document is only valid for two weeks, the online application must only be completed a maximum of 14 days before departure. It must be presented on arrival, along with his passport and a copy of his passport, at the visa counter. If the traveler has traveled to Nepal before, they must also provide a copy of their old Nepalese visa. Payment is made on-site when the visa is issued. This formula does not entail any rate change.
The visa is free for children under 10 years old. For stays of less than 3 days, free visas no longer exist (take a “15-day” visa).
In the event of a combined India-Nepal trip, it should be noted that Indian law prohibits entering India, or Nepal from India, with Indian rupees (the logical consequence of the ban on importing and exporting Indian rupees).
