Nepal Visa

All U.S. citizens are required to have a Nepal visa for entry into the country. Visas can either be secured on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport or certain land border crossings or prior to arrival in Nepal.

Tourists are allowed to stay in Nepal for a maximum of 150 days each year. It is important that you leave the country before your travel visa expires. If you stay in Nepal on an expired visa, you will be fined, and you could be imprisoned.


The requirements for obtaining a visa to travel to Nepal are listed below.

  • Completed visa application form. The application form is designed to gather personal information about the applicant, such as name, date of birth, nationality, address, phone number, passport number, trip dates and more. It is very important that you complete this form accurately and in its entirety. Incomplete and inaccurate applications will not be processed, delaying the issuance of your Nepal visa and possibly your travel plans.
  • U.S. passport that will be valid for at least six months after you arrive in Nepal
  • Passport photo taken within the last six months
  • Applicable visa fees
  • This list is not meant to be all-inclusive. Visa requirements can change at any time. For the most up to date requirements, visit the website of the Embassy of Nepal.

    Submitting Your Application

    If you choose to secure your visa in advance of your trip, you can submit your application in person at the Embassy in Washington, D.C. or Consulate in New York, or you can mail your application.

    If you send your application by mail, you must include a prepaid, self-addressed envelope, so your passport can be returned to you after your visa is issued. It is recommended that you provide a return envelope using a traceable delivery method.

    Nepal visa applications take about seven business days to process, and visas must be used within six months of being issued.


    Visa fees vary based on the length of stay permitted by the visa. The cost of a 15-day multiple entry visa is $25; the cost of a 30-day multiple entry visa is $40; and the cost of a 90-day multiple entry visa is $100.

    Payment must be in the form of money order or cashier’s check. Other forms of payment, including credit cards, debit cards and personal checks will not be accepted. All visa fees are non-refundable.
