Visa upon Entry?

hi

I've never been to Nepal and understand you can get a visa upon entry at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu.

Is this OK to do , will there be vast queues , would you reccommend getting one before you leave?

I am from the UK

Thanks in advance of any advice

Whitby:

You indeed can get a visa right at the airport. We have done it twice. There are forms on the table as you enter immigration. The entry form on they give you on the flight is not the same as the visa application form! Just fill it out, have a couple of passport photos with you, your passport, the entry form, and when I was there $45 US Dollars. I don't think they take British Pounds, but with the current exchange rate you're probably ahead of the game with US Dollars. You also can type in Nepal visa on the web and get current updates. If you're going to be in the country for three days or less the visa fee is waived and you get into the gtatis visa line.

There are as you would say in the UK, ques, but it moves along quite quickly. There is no need to hurry through immigration, the baggage retrieval in Kathmandu is possibly the slowest in the civiized world, so you're either spending time in the immigration line or at baggage claim. Enjoy your trip - Nepal is a wonderful place.

You can get a tourist visa good for 60 days for $30US at any one of three entry points on the border with India. Check on thamal.com, and it lists the points. I suspect that you will be crossing at one of the main points. We came accross from Tibet in November and got a gratis visa at Kodari since we were only going to be in Napal for less than three days. Make sure you have some passport photos made up. You can renew for an additional 30 days for $50 US. You can renew for up to 120 days. So, of you're staying for four months, your total cost will be $130US.

>>You can renew for an additional 30 days for $50 US.<<

When I renewed my visa in December 2006, it cost 30 USD for an additional 30 days. However the office only accepts rupees, and the actual price in rupees (around 2200) depends on the exchange rate used each day. I don't think the office provides change, so take some smaller notes with you (and a passport-sized photo).
