Nepal Visa Extension via Online Only

0 Comments 28 Jan 2014 ADV

Foreigner travelers seeking to extend their stay in Nepal will soon have to file application online.

From February 1, the department of Immigration (DoI) will mandate foreigners seeking to extent their tourist visas to file applications through its website www.nepaliimmigration.gov.np

“Once the application is filed, we will inform applicants when to collect visas or weather additional documents are required.” Dol director general Sharad Chandra Poudel said, “However, people should report to the immigration authority within 15 days of filing the application, as system does not preserve requests made prior to that period.”

The latest decision comes after making it necessary for fpreigners seeking non-tourist visas, except diplomatic and official, to file applications online. Beginning January 0, had made it mandatory for those applying for non-tourist visas, such as business, working, residential and study, among others, to file applications through its portal.

“However, foreigners traveling to Nepal via Tribhuban International Airport have the option of either filing tourist visa applications online or in person once they land at the airport,” he added.

But since service is only available at the DoI and TIA, travelers arriving from other ports and borders points will have to pursue paper-based application process.
