Tribhuvan International Airport is the only international airport in Nepal. The Immigration Office at TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) provides “visa on arrival” services to tourists flying to Nepal. The “on arrival” visa process is quick and straightforward, although there may be queues during peak tourist season. If you wish to avoid these queues, you can also obtain a visa from a Nepalese diplomatic mission abroad before arrival. The choice is yours. If you have obtained a visa from a Nepalese diplomatic mission, you must enter Nepal within six months from the date the visa was issued. Your total stay is counted from the day you enter Nepal.

“On arrival” visas are tourist visas that allow multiple re-entries into Nepal. Visit Nepal for purposes other than tourism (such as sightseeing, tours, travel, mountaineering, trekking, or visiting friends and family). You should still obtain a tourist visa to enter the country. However, you will need to change your visa category to reflect your purpose and length of stay in Nepal by presenting the necessary documents to the Department of Immigration.

Nationals of certain countries must obtain visas from a nearby Nepalese diplomatic mission (embassy or consulate) before arriving in Nepal. Please check the link to determine if you are eligible for a visa on arrival.

To obtain a visa on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, follow these steps:
