Nepal Visa

       You must have a current, valid passport and a valid visa to enter Nepal.

 

By far the easiest way to obtain a visa for Nepal is upon arrival at Tribuhvan International Airport, Kathmandu, Nepal.

 

In the arrivals area at the airport you will find the visa  entry forms to fill in. Most people arriving in Nepal get their visa upon arrival.

 

       PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT OBTAIN A NEPAL VISA FOR YOU

 

You will pay for your visa at the processing counter in cash. GB Pounds, US Dollars and Euro's are accepted, although it's likely any change due will be given in Nepal currency.

 

You will also need two passport photographs as part of your visa application process. It's wise to take these with you, as although there is a photobooth at the airport, it is very time consuming (chances are you won't have the correct currency change on you anyway).

 

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR PASSPORT IS VALID FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS FROM THE DATE YOU WILL ARRIVE IN NEPAL.

 

WHEN COMPLETING THE FORMS AND APPLYING FOR YOUR VISA UPON ARRIVAL, PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VISA YOU ARE PURCHASING IS OF SUFFICIENT DURATION TO COVER YOUR LENGTH OF STAY IN NEPAL.

 

As at 29/09/15 the visa fees for Nepal are:

 

(Multiple Entry). 15 days: US$25, 30 days: US$40, 90 days: US$100

 

Note that visa fees can change without warning and we advise that you bring extra cash as a contingency. We further advise that you check the visa costs prior to travelling to Nepal.

 

Alternatively you can apply for a visa for Nepal in advance. UK citizens should contact:

The Nepalese Embassy, 12A, Kensington Palace Gardens, London, W8 4QU (telephone: +20 7229 1594 or 6231 or 5352).

 

For other nationalities please contact the Nepalese Embassy in your country of domicile.

Upon receipt of your final balance payment for your holiday we will make the Bhutan Visa application. The proces usually only takes a few days, upon which we will then send you a copy of your Visa Clearance Letter. You must take two copies of this letter on your Bhutan Holiday with you and present it I(and your valid passport) upon arrival at Paro International Airport, upon which the Bhutan Visa will be stamped in your passport.

 

The Bhutan Visa is often confused with the daily charge that all tourists to Bhutan must pay. This charge is best described as a minimum daily package tariff, which is imposed by the Bhutan Government.

 

The minimum daily package covers the following services.

 

• A minimum of 3 star accommodation (4 & 5 star may require an additional premium).

• All meals

• A licensed Bhutanese tour guide for the extent of your stay

• All internal transport (excluding internal flights)

• Camping equipment and haulage for trekking tours

 

It also includes:

• All internal taxes and charges

• A sustainable tourism Royalty of $65. This Royalty goes towards free education, free healthcare, poverty alleviation, along with the building of infrastructure.

 

The minimum daily package for tourists travelling in a group of 3 persons or more is as follows:

USD $200 per person per night for the months of January, February, June, July, August, and December.

USD $250 per person per night for the months of March, April, May, September, October, and November.

 

An additional $45 per person per night applies if the group is 2 persons & $90 per night if just one person.

 

On the day of departure, the ‘local agents’ host obligation shall be limited to providing breakfast only and any extra requirements shall be payable on usage basis.

 

Only approved hotels and lodges can be used as part of your Bhutan holiday.
