Visa information for Nepal

Almost all tourists can obtain a visa on arrival at the International Airport in Kathmandu (there is only one) or at all major international border crossings into Nepal.


You will need to take 2 passport photos with you and your passport must have a minimum validity of six months. It is possible to buy your photos at the airport in Kathmandu, but it is recommended that you bring them with you from home.


Most treks require a 30 day visa, however if you are trekking to Annapurna Poon Hill or Lantang and Gosaikund Lake you only require a 15 day visa. If you plan to stay longer than the duration of the standard trek, please factor the extra days in when obtaining a visa.


Countries that are not entitled to visas on arrival are: Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan cannot receive visas on arrival. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, please contact your local Nepalese embassy.
