Passports and Visas (Nepal)

The following are applicable visa fees upon entering Nepal. Ensure that you carry the funds with you before entering the country. A blank passport page and a passport size photo is also required for the application at time of entry. We suggest you bring the photo with you although they can be obtained on arrival for a small fee.

  • US Dollars 40 or other convertible foreign currency equivalent thereto for 30 days
  • US Dollars 100 or other convertible foreign currency equivalent thereto for 90 days

If you have more questions don't hesitate to ask us or you can reference the official publication from the Nepal Visa Office.

Rescue Insurance in the Himalayas

Rescue Insurance is mandatory on treks in the Himalayas. If you have a traditional travel insurance policy it would generally already include this. We can provide this for $70 on arrival. This insurance covers the cost of mountain evacuation (generally by helicopter up to elevations of 6000m).

Travel Insurance

It is strongly recommended that you have adequate travel insurance for your holiday. Unlike rescue insurance travel insurance covers your cost related to cancellation charges, unexpected curtailment of your holiday, medical and repatriation expenses including air ambulance, personal accident, delay loss or damage to your personal effects. If you don't have it already we recommend either Cover More or World Nomads.
