Applying for a tourist visa to Nepal
Please use this visa form and read instructions on the first page carefully before completing your application.
The Consulate office is now open Wednesday only from 9am to 1pm for express visas. The office is CLOSED on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
On-the-spot express visas are issued Wednesday ONLY from 9am to 1pm, with no appointment required for individual applications. (Please note that there is an extra charge for on the spot processing.)
For postal applications, regular visa processing can take up to 10 business days from the date the application is received. Once finalised, your passport will be returned via your self-addressed Registered Post or Signature Express Post envelope. Visas may take longer than 10 business days during our busy months from August to November, or as a result of limited staffing.
Do not use standard Express Post envelopes for sending or receiving passports. It is not safe. For an extra $2.95 you can purchase a Signature on Collection Express Post envelope from your Post Office which provides the security of obtaining a signature on collection as well as the usual tracking facility.
Please also ensure your envelope has the correct weight/width/weight for return of passport/s (preferably more than 5mm max width which is only usually suitable for 1 passport). You can consult Post Office staff who will help you purchase the correct sized envelope.
The Consulate is not responsible for any loss or damage to documents sent via mail/post or any undelivered passports because of insufficient postage, flimsy envelopes or other incidents that may occur during transit or handling of documents.
