Nepal stay

Hi,

as far as my knowledge goes, it depends entirely on the lenght of ur visa how u long u can stay there.

I have never heard of such thing.

Some rules differ though from country to country, but surely u can only stay in nepal as many days as mentioned on ur visa. Read it carefully. There are no exceptions.

I stayed last time in Happy Home guest house, thamel near helen's restaurant. U can also talk with them on phone:


00977-1-4242076 as they are always on the newest level of knowledge [the boss, her sister and one other Nepali boy in the reception are very reliable, u could check up with them too].

I wish u good luck and a nice stay in nepal!

My threat was entirely based on getting an indian visa in Nepal, but to find out the rules for staying in Nepal, its may be better to ask ur embassy there.

each calandar year starting January 1 you can stay in nepal for 5 months, if you are in nepal for the last 5 months of the year you can continue without leaving for the first 5 months of the new year.
I believe that is correct. 5 months in each calendar year. But the last 30 days of that you can only get if you are still in nepal from the previous 4 months. After 5 months in a single calendar year ---> get out. No exceptions.

That's my understanding.

yes, Tapestry is correct. Generally you can extend the tourist visa, up to a maximum of 150 days in any one calendar year if you fulfil certain condititions. I can't remember if you have to leave Nepal if your visa is still valid, to get the one for the new calendar year, but I have a feeling that you do. can anyone confirm or otherwise clarify this point?

I'm quite sure you do have to leave the country in order to re-start the clock in the new year because otherwise you'd be overstaying the "no more than 150 consecutive days" rule. So, for example, if you somehow arrange it that your days are up exactly on December 31, you probably still have to leave the country to start your new visas on January 1. Generally, that's how this visa stuff goes anyway. You have to leave the country to restart the clock.

i was at the visa office yesterday. the board says opens 10am, but they may make you wait a little while outside, then they let you in but the windows don't open till 11am. and unless you stop the guys walking back and forth they will not do anything. when you go to the window to submit and pay, they don't say they are coin collectors and like to get some american coins, they just ask for dollar, i didn't have, but no one gets the change from the NRS2000 for the visa, which would be 53 rupees. the guy directly in front of me on line's slip said he should return at 1pm, mine said 1:30 pm. i think it is slow season and they are making paperwork show they are busy. i went back at 12:30 and the visa was ready.

the info board did say 5 months any calandar year, but i didn't ask them about leaving the country or not, even if for just one day.

Hi u r right abt most of the things u have written except that one is not allowed to carry indian currency in Nepal. you can , but make sure the denominations are not above 100. U can carry as much as possible but there must not be any 500,1000 rs notes with u....

Indian currency is widely accepted in Nepal and its not at all a problem as long as u have 50 and 100 rs denominations..

Poland used to have free visas to a lot of countries, including India. USA citizens almost always pay the most for a visa to another country. You would be surprised how much more a USA citizen has to pay compared to an Italian, Canadian or Japanese to visit a lot of countries.

My guess for a reason would be that the USA charges everyone else enormous amounts of money and are really nasty about it (never refunded, even if rejected), so most countries try to return the favor.

Here is a website that lists the address and contact information of Nepal embassies across the world:
http://www.travel-nepal.com/foreignties.html

Official Nepal Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
http://www.mofa.gov.np

Here is a website that also has some visa related information (beware: commerical website):
http://www.visahq.com/

According to the Nepal Embassy in Germany website (see MoFA for a link), "(a) Free Visa for 3 or less than 3 days single entry" which may be good news for anyone wanting to extend their Indian visa or a quick Nepal visit. Note that a transit visa is also available, but requires onward ticket and is only valid for 48 hours.

As far as I know and was firmly told cwab77, the agent loophole/option has been closed. You have to submit and accept your application personally. And even if you did use an agent, they couldn't speed it up in total number of business days required, only wait there for you.

Sorry!

Uh, OK, thanks azizdhamani. Not sure where you got the idea any of us on this thread had any bad impressions of Bangladesh. We were talking about visas in Nepal and India and Sri Lanka.

I'd love to visit Bangladesh at some point (so many countries, so little time) and have no fears of its safety. I don't listen to the media. I think you'll find most on this community are open-minded and even bold sorts. So thanks for your pride in your country, but have no fear, you're preaching to the converted.

Hi Kishori,

It's good of them to give that advice. I'm in Colombo going for my third shot and struck out. They had even hinted that when I've had a Business Visa for a year they may be able to give me a longer than 6 month visa. In reality, they reluctantly gave me a one month tourist visa to take care of business / flat etc...

So my question is, did you meet people who went two strikes at Kat, then go for two at Colombo, etc? I don't want to fly all the way home (NZ), or have to wait 6 months before coming back as the Business activities are finally getting worthwhile...

Any one in the same spot and got round it?

Chances of getting India visa in Nepal

Quote:
# Applicants are advised to obtain Indian visas from the Indian Missions located in the country where they normally reside. The Embassy of India in Kathmandu will normally entertain visa applications only from foreign nationals residing in Nepal. However, transit/tourist visa applications from foreigners visiting Nepal for short periods will be entertained.

# Repeated applications for tourist visas will not be entertained .
