Have 1 yr India multiple entry visa, can I go 2 Nepal for 2 weeks then return 2 India

I have a 1 year multiple entry visa. I want to go to Nepal for 2 weeks, then come back to India. Can I?

I can not stay in Nepal for 2 months, I only want 2 weeks. Will I be able to get back into India??

Thank you for your reply!

March 25-March 29th India
March 30th-April 14th Nepal
April 14-April 30 India

April 30 fly home from Delhi

????Possible??? :)

May not be possible due to the new rules. Either you enter Nepal direct at the begining of your trip without entering into India just change planes at an Indian airport or Visit Nepal at the end.

Depends on your visa type.
Most visa types, the answer is yes. BUT if you have a tourist visa, although the immigration officials do have the power to let you back into India, the airline may not let you board without a re-entry permit.

This can be easily obtained by applying to the Indian Embassy you got your visa from, there should have been details on the website when you got your visa. You can also try applying for one in Kathmandu, but it will take a lot longer and is not guaranteed. See my sigline for useful links.

March 25-March 29th India
That is today. You have left it a bit late...

Im in India at the moment, so I cant go back to where I got my visa. Entered on March 17th...and leave April 30th. 1 year multiple TOURIST visa.

Wanted to visit Nepal for 2 weeks. I just bought my ticket to get to the border, so I guess I will walk up and ask the officials! Hope it works!

Has anyone gone to Nepal from India lately???

The opinion of the officials as you leave is irrelevant. All that matters is the opinion of the officials as you try to enter India again.

Oh yes. We have a long thread about this rule. See my sig line for the link to the "two month rule advice thread"

Suggest you work backwards to find the latest experiences.
