Nepal is a land-locked country in South Asia that is mostly known for having 8 of the 10 highest mountain peaks in the world. The famous Mount Everest is in Nepal, although climbing it is a challenging ordeal to say the least. Most travelers who go to Nepal do it because of the countless trekking opportunities. So many mountains wait to be explored. Trekking in Nepal is dangerous, especially because you can go off-grid for days on end. Of course, you can choose a trail for beginners, but we recommend that you do not go alone. Apart from trekking, you can go mountain biking, kayaking, and the Chitwan National Park is perfect for jungle safari.

Before you go to Nepal, you must see whether or not you need a visa to access the country. In fact, chances are that you need one because only the citizens of India enjoy visa-free access. All the other nationalities are either eligible for a visa on arrival or they need to obtain a visa at the nearest diplomatic mission. Electronic visas are available since January 2014.

As mentioned above, visas on arrival are available with almost all nationalities in the world eligible for one. Of course, there are minor differences, depending on your nationality. Some can get a visa on arrival without paying a fee, others are exempt from paying the tax if they visit for touristic purposes, while some other travelers must pay a fee for their visa on arrival. Nevertheless, all visa are valid for 120 days.

If you want to know which one you need to get, you can consult iVisa’s Visa Checker. You can see it in the top right corner. You must select your country of origin in the drag-down box on the left and Nepal in the right box. The result will display whether or not you need a visa. And if you do, you will receive some useful information such as a list of the nearest embassies.

Unfortunately, iVisa does not process Nepal visa applications at the moment, but we may soon. Until then, we would like to be of some assistance, which is why we can provide information with our free 24/7 support service.

Before leaving for Nepal or applying at the embassy, you need to learn about the visa requirements and make sure that you meet them. While you can find a lot of valuable information online, not all of it is reliable. You should use it as a reference only. A diplomatic mission or an embassy will always be the most reliable source of information. You should contact them before going down there. In the meantime, what we can tell you is that you need a valid passport that does not expire for another 6 months from the date of arrival in Nepal.

For the moment, the information provided above is the best we can do, but we hope that it points you in the right direction. As soon as Nepal becomes a supported country on iVisa, we will let you know.
