VISA INFORMATION NEPAL
Nepal, a landlocked country famous for its geographical, cultural, and traditional beauty, requires visas for foreigners except for Indian citizens and people from countries that hold Nepali visa exemption facilities. Likewise, SAARC citizens, except Afghans, can get a free visa for 30 days. For most foreigners, the department of immigration has given Tribhuvan International Airport permission to provide visas on arrival, and those who can’t do so have to obtain visas from their country’s Nepalese diplomatic mission ( embassy). If one wishes to stay longer and wants to renew their visa, they have to visit the department of immigration located at Kalikasthan and Kathmandu.
