# How do I get Nepal Visa & Cost?

All foreign nationals, except Indian citizens, need visas to enter Nepal. Nepalese visas can be obtained from the Nepalese Embassy or consulate in your home country or they can also be obtained at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu upon your arrival. Most of our guests take Nepal Visa after they arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Tribhuvan International Airport is the only international airport in Nepal. Immigration Office, TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) under the Department of Immigration has been facilitating tourists flying to Nepal by providing visas on Arrival. The 'On Arrival' visa procedure is very quick and simple. You can expect some queues during peak Tourist season. If you wish to skip those queues, you can also consider getting Visa from Nepalese Diplomatic Missions stationed abroad prior to your arrival. The choice is yours.

If you have obtained a visa from Nepalese Diplomatic Missions, then you must enter Nepal within six months from the visa-issued date. Your total stay is counted starting from the day you enter Nepal.

Visas obtained on Arrival at the Entry and Exit points are 'Tourist Visas'. They bear multiple Re entry facilities. Tourist Visa 'On Arrival' is the only entry visa to Nepal. If you are visiting Nepal for purposes other than Tourism (sightseeing, tour, travel, mountaineering, trekking, visiting friends and families), you should still get a ' Tourist Visa' to get into the country. However, you must change the category of visa as per your purpose and length of stay in Nepal from the Department of Immigration by producing the required documents. Nationals of designated countries are requested to acquire visas prior to their arrival from their nearby Diplomatic missions (Embassies/consulates) of the Nepal Government.

Please follow these simple procedures for Tourist Visa on Arrival at the airport (TIA) if you have not acquired Visa prior to boarding the plane.

1st Step:

Fill in ' Arrival Card '

Fill in the Online ‘Tourist Visa ‘form ( you can fill it out prior to your arrival by visiting our official website Department of Immigration / fill it up using Kiosk machines upon your arrival at the airport). If you fill it from the website, you will get a submission Receipt with a barcode, please print it out and bring it along for acquiring a visa. It works for fifteen days and becomes invalid then after. If so, you will have to fill it up again.

2nd Step:

Make payment at the bank according to your visa requirement ( 15/30/90 Days) Get the receipt.

While you can use different modes of payments (at the visa fees collection counter), we advise you to carry some cash to be on the safe side.

On Arrival Visa Fee at Entry Points

  • 15 Days – 30 USD
  • 30 Days – 50 USD
  • 90 Days – 125 USD

3rd Step:

Proceed to the Immigration Desk with your online form, payment receipts, and your passport. Hand in your documents to the immigration officer for visa processing. He/she issues a visa to you upon his/her satisfaction.

What is Nepal Visa Extension Fee?

Tourist visa extension is done for a minimum of 15 days with USD 45 and USD 3 per day for additional days. In the case of a delay of fewer than 150 days additional USD 5 per day as of late is fine.

Does this package include accommodation and meals?

Yes, this package is inclusive of full board (meal and accommodation), during the trek, and bed and breakfast in Kathmandu. The accommodation in Kathmandu is arranged in a 3-star tourist standard hotel and lodges/guest houses/teahouses (with shared amenities), during the trek. The rooms are booked on a twin-share basis, where you will be paired up with another member (same-sex) of your group. Triple share can be arranged on request, both in Kathmandu and during the trek. Single supplements are also available but at extra cost. The accommodation options used during the trek are very basic. The room amenities are also basic, which decreases with the increase in altitude. However, the rooms are comfortable and are the best available in the area. Toilets and bathrooms are usually common. Some of these accommodations provide a hot shower facility, while the others provide a few buckets of hot water on request (extra charge applicable). This facility also decreases with an increase in elevation.

Meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner), during the trek, will be served as per the tea house menu. All meals will be freshly made, using organic and local ingredients, and will be plentiful. Soft drinks and other snacks can be purchased at your own expense (the prices significantly increase, with the increase in elevation).

What is the best season to plan the Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek in Nepal?

Spring (March to May) and Autumn(October to November) are the two best seasons to plan the Everest Three High Passes Trek in Nepal. These two seasons are very supportive in terms of weather, climate, visibility, and trail condition. Heavy snowfall in winter and heavy rainfall during the monsoon time, both seasons will not be the best time to do this trek, however, if you are ready for these conditions we can organize the trek any time a year.

Do we need trek and travel insurance to do the Gokyo Lake Renjo La Pass Trek in Nepal? If yes, what type?

Naturally! Yes, we need travel and trekking insurance to do this Everest High Passes Trek in Nepal. It is very compulsory, Trekking/travel insurance can cut back on the major financial risk of traveling such as like missed flight, canceled the trip, lost baggage, theft, emergency evacuation, accidents and illness, and well as dead body repatriation. Therefore, be careful while choosing your insurance policy. Make sure that the policy covers five major courses: trip cancellation or interruption, medical evacuation (treatment cost, hospital charges, doctor’s fee, and cost of the medicine), flight insurance (cancellations and delays), and baggage insurance (misplaced or lost luggage). You can also add supplemental policies to cover particular issues, like identity theft, and security and political evacuation (natural disasters, civil uprisings, military coups, political unrest, etc.). Or, get a ‘Comprehensive Insurance’ that covers all of the above-given courses plus expenses caused by delayed trips, missed flights, or any alterations in the itinerary by the tour company. Moreover, the maximum elevation gained during this trek is 5,550 meters; therefore, it’s important to ensure that the policy covers helicopter and medical evacuation up to 6000 meters (some standard policies only cover up to 4000 meters).
