Nepal Visa Requirements for Tourists

by David | April 7th, 2010

Long a favorite haunt of backpackers, Nepal has a thriving tourist industry. According to Nepalese government statistics, in 2007 5,260,705 foreign tourists arrived in Nepal, up 37.2% from 2006. Although most of those tourists were from Asia or Western Europe, approximately 7.1% were from North America.  Most tourists came for recreational purposes, although adventure tourism is also common and adventure tourists tended to stay in Nepal for longer periods of time.

American citizen tourists are required to obtain Nepal visas, either at a Nepalese embassy or consulate before they leave the US or on arrival. You can obtain a visa-on-arrival at the following points of entry:

  • Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu
  • Kakarvitta, Jhapa District (Eastern Nepal)
  • Birgunj, Parsa District (Central Nepal)
  • Kodari, Sindhupalchowk District (Northern Border)
  • Belahia, Bhairahawa (Rupandehi District, Western Nepal)
  • Jamunaha, Nepalgunj (Banke District, Mid-Western Nepal)
  • Mohana Dhangadhi (Kailali District, Far Western Nepal)
  • Gadda Chauki, Mahendranagar (Kanchanpur District, Far Western Nepal)

No matter where you apply, to get a Nepal visa you need the following documents:

  • One Nepal visa application
  • One passport photo
  • The appropriate visa fees for your desired length of stay.  A 15-day multiple entry visa is $25, a one-month visa is $40, and a three-month multiple entry visa is  $100.

If plan to backpack through Nepal, you may also need to apply for a trekking permit.
