All nationalities need a valid passport and a current Nepalese Visa for entry into Nepal. The easiest way to get your Nepal visa is on arrival at Kathmandu Airport. Visa fees must be paid in cash. The most convenient currency to purchase Nepalese visas is US dollars, but GB pounds and Euros are also accepted. The charges for the visa depend on your length of stay (please see fee information below). Two passport photos are also needed. Photographs can be obtained at the airport but this may be time-consuming.
Nepal visa fees (Multiple Entry). 15 days: US$25, 30 days: US$40, 90 days: US$100
Note that visa fees can change without warning and we advise that you bring extra cash as a contingency.
Note that the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has instituted a levy of 1,000 Nepalese rupees (approximately US$11) on all passengers departing Kathmandu International Airport from 17th July 2014. This levy is being called an Airport Development Fee (ADF). Unlike standard airport tax, this new fee is not included in the price of your air ticket. Please ensure that you have 1000 Nepal rupees available to pay this fee when you leave Kathmandu.
Please note that if you are travelling to Nepal via Delhi you may also require a visa for India. This may apply even if you are not leaving the airport unless your baggage has been checked all the way through to your destination. Generally, if you use the same carrier for both legs of your journey (into Delhi and from Delhi to Kathmandu), you will not need an India Visa. Please note that the responsibility for ensuring you have the necessary visas, travel permits etc, for your chosen route of travel to the joining point, lies entirely with you. We are always happy to give advice on these requirements if you contact us.
Note that if you book a UK flight-inclusive package with KE using Jet Airways or Air India via Delhi, you will not require an India visa.
