  •   30 Days Tourist Entry VisaUSD 40.00

    Tourist Visa for Filipinos and citizens of most countries is available upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu. No other supporting document is required. There are kiosks where you can electronically fill out the application and have your photo taken. I traveled in March 2016 and there were very few tourists at that time. Immigration Officers are quite nice unlike in most Asian countries where they just give you a blank face. 


    Visa fee is USD 25 for 15 days, USD 40 for 30 days and USD 100 for 90 days.
