How to get your Visa for Nepal

When you go to Nepal, as a foreigner you need to arrange a Visa. This procedure is not so hard, but you do need some advise on how to do it! Volunteer Society Nepal helps you with this. All the information you need will be in your pre-departure package that we send to you.

Getting a visa for Nepal is easy

With the information below, you can easily arrange your visa! Make sure that your passport is valid for at least 6 more months.

Online Visa Form

You can apply for the tourist visa online within the 14 days before you leave your country and bring a print out of the visa application receipt.  Please follow these links for application:

Apply on Arrival

You can also apply & obtain your tourist visa on arrival at the Kathmandu airport, without filling in the online application. Always bring the stated amount of money for the visa with you in cash (dollars or euros).

A single-entry visa valid for 15/30/90 days costs US$30/50/125.

At Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan Airport the fee is payable in any major currency (for example euros or USD). Take the following steps after leaving the airport:

  1. Fill out the small arrival slip (make sure to bring your own pen!)
  2. Fill out the application form at the machines
  3. Pay for your visa at the counter
  4. Wait in line to receive your visa stamp and enter Nepal

While you fill up the visa application form either online or at the airport, please fill out the temporary address that we give you in your Pre-Departure Package.

Upon arrival

When you arrive in Kathmandu, VSN representative Bimal will meet you at the airport and take you to the host family where you will be staying. You will find him holding a paper with your name at the airport exit, the moment you walk outside.

See you soon in Nepal?
