Extending our visa in Nepal

Visa costs entering Nepal are as follows  

  • 15 Days  $25

  • 30 days $40

  • 90 Days $100

Our return flight to Bangkok was 35 days after our entry. Taking the 90 day visa and having to pay $100 just for the extra 5 days seemed crazy. After some research, I found it was possible to extend your visa once already in Nepal . This is how we did it and how much it cost. 

Take your passport and go to an immigration office in Kathmandu. Location

Once you go in follow these steps :

  • Get a token from the machine at the door.

  • Fill in your visa details in the computer choosing “Visa Extention” under Visa Type.

  • Get receipt.

  • Hand the receipt and your passport in to the Visa counter who will then tell you to go and pay.

  • Go to the pay counter, and *pay the visa cost and hand in your passport. (We selected a 15 day extension which cost $30. )

  • Take a seat, and wait for them to call you with your passport with your new visa in.

Waiting for passport

*Important to note , is they don’t accept USD that have any tears in the note! They asked us for a different $20 as the one had a tear in it.

That’s it, In total it took us 45 minutes but it could take longer if it was busier. I suggest give yourself about 2 hours.

Hopefully this is helpful to someone,
