Do I need a visa to travel to Nepal?

Where do I get my visa from? All foreign nationals, except Indian citizens, need to obtain a visa to enter Nepal. You need a valid passport, two passport-size photos and US$ 40 for 30 days. The visa fees may vary over time so please check with the embassy or consulate prior to your departure to be on the safe side.

The best way to apply for a visa is from the Embassy of Nepal in your home country or from the Immigration office at the entry points of Nepal.

What are the health requirements to visit Nepal?

You do not officially require any immunisations to enter Nepal, unless you come from an area where yellow fever is present, in which case you must show a proof of immunisation. However, it is always recommended to seek medical advice at least six weeks prior to your trip.

What is the currency of Nepal?

The Nepalese currency is the Nepalese Rupee or Nepali Rupee, and in short it is written NRS or RS.

Current notes of the following denominations are used: 1000, 500, 100, 50, 25, 10, 5 rupees. The coin system hasn’t been too popular in Nepal and hence not much used. The coins of the following denominations can be found: 1 paisa, 5 paisa, 10 paisa, 50 paisa and 1 Rs, 2 Rs, and 5 Rs.

It is recommended that you travel with smaller notes in the less populated areas, while large notes are easily accepted elsewhere.
