Visa Application Procedure
Visa applications will now be processed on Wednesday and Thursday between 9am and 1pm. From 1st July the Consulate office will not accept drop off/pick up applications.
On-the-spot visas are issued on Wednesday and Thursday ONLY from 9am to 1pm, (excluding public holidays) with no appointment required for individual applications.
Street Address: Level 5, 269 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, Qld, 4006
PLEASE NOTE: If you are submitting more than 5 applications for on-the-spot processing, contact the consulate to advise us by phone or email.
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 2 weeks to process during our busy months from August to November, or as a result of limited staffing.
Your current passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry into Nepal.
Submitting your visa application by post:
You may post (via Registered Post or Signature Express Post) your signed visa application (one copy only), a passport photo of yourself, your passport and a Postal Money Order or Bank issued cheque made payable to the Consulate General of Nepal for the correct amount. We do not accept personal cheques. Please enclose an extra Registered Mail or Signature Express Post envelope (clearly addressed to yourself) so we may return your passport.
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 Express Post envelope from your Post Office which provides the security of obtaining a signature on collection as well as the usual tracking facility.
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.
