Nepal Travel Entry and Exit Visa Information

Health Information

General: Medical services in Nepal have made progress in urban areas like the Kathmandu valley but remain limited in rural regions, lacking Western standards and adequate resources. Public hospitals offer low-cost but subpar emergency services, while private sector services tend to be expensive. The government is working on improving surgical facilities in Kathmandu, but for serious illnesses, many people seek treatment abroad or in neighboring countries. Mental health care centers are also available in Nepal.

Medical Emergencies in Nepal: Nepal is renowned for its thrilling outdoor activities like peak climbing, trekking, paragliding, and more. However, these activities come with potential health risks such as acute mountain sickness, accidents, and gastrointestinal issues that can affect both national and international tourists.

Medical Care in Nepal: Access to medical care and emergency services is limited in remote areas compared to major cities. In cases of illness or injuries during outdoor activities, helicopter rescue may be necessary, with costs ranging from $3,000 to $10,000. It is strongly recommended to have emergency evacuation and health insurance for outdoor activities in Nepal.

How to Find a Doctor in Nepal: Finding doctors is relatively easy in major hospitals in Kathmandu valley, but it can be challenging to find specialists in remote areas. In remote regions, you can consult health assistants at medical wards for minor illnesses or rely on emergency evacuation insurance for critical health situations. Travelers are advised to consult their medical insurance company regarding coverage for overseas emergencies.

Taking Care of Yourself in Nepal: Prevention is key. Familiarize yourself with Nepal’s geography, local hygiene, and sanitation practices to take appropriate safety measures. Pay attention to minor illnesses that could develop into significant diseases.

Altitude Sickness: Altitude sickness is a common issue faced by climbers and trekkers in the Himalayan region. It has three forms: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High-altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), and High-altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE). Recognizable symptoms of AMS include headaches, nausea, and loss of appetite. Descending to lower altitudes can help alleviate these symptoms. Ignoring AMS can lead to HACE and HAPE, which can be fatal if not treated.

Diarrhea and Gastrointestinal Ailments: Travelers often experience diarrhea and gastrointestinal issues in Nepal due to various factors such as weather changes, food habits, and drinking water. It is recommended to consume boiled and healthy food, avoid street vendors, and properly clean fruits and vegetables to minimize the risk of stomach problems.

Stray Animals: Stray dogs are common in Nepal, and while foreign tourists may find them endearing, caution is advised as they may carry rabies. In the event of a dog bite, immediately wash the wound with soap and water and seek medical attention.

Medical Insurance: Before visiting Nepal, consult with your insurance specialist to obtain emergency medical evacuation and supplemental insurance. In case of serious injuries during climbing or trekking in remote areas, helicopter evacuation may be necessary.

Prescription Medication: Certain international medications may be restricted in Nepal. It is crucial to check their legal status with the Nepalese Embassy or consulates and carry them in their original packaging with a doctor’s prescription.

Transportation Information

Road Conditions and Safety: Road conditions in Nepal are often poorly maintained, particularly in hilly areas, and safety features are lacking. The monsoon season can lead to landslides and erosion, causing road blockades and increasing the risk of accidents and fatalities. Traffic jams are common in major cities, and there have been incidents of traffic law violations. It is important to be cautious and avoid traveling in vehicles that are not adequately trained and licensed.

Nighttime Travel: Outside of the Kathmandu valley, the streets may lack proper lighting, and road conditions may be unfavorable. It is advisable to avoid traveling outside of Kathmandu at night for safety reasons.

Motorcycle Travel: If you plan to ride a motorcycle in Nepal, be aware of the speed limits and take necessary safety precautions. Motorcycle accidents have seen a significant increase in recent years. Always wear helmets and other safety gear and refrain from carrying more than one person on a bike.

Buses: When traveling by bus, it is recommended to choose daytime journeys, especially in rural areas where road conditions can be challenging. Long-distance bus travel can be tiring, but it is important to avoid climbing onto the roofs of buses for adventure, as this is against traffic laws and can lead to accidents.

Taxis: Taxis can be a safer and more convenient option, although they are more expensive than buses. All taxis have meters, but drivers often negotiate fares instead of using the meter. It is advisable to negotiate the fare before getting into the taxi to avoid being overcharged. If you feel that you have been cheated, you can file a complaint with the traffic police or the local police station.

Pedestrian Travel: Pedestrian lanes are not common in Nepal, except for pedestrian bridges. When walking on the side of the road, it is important to exercise caution, use zebra crossings where available, and utilize pedestrian bridges to cross busy highways. Pedestrians have unfortunately experienced traffic fatalities, so it is essential to prioritize safety while traveling on foot.

Local Law

Arrests and Consequences: Laws are applicable everywhere, and Nepal has its own set of local laws. Violating any local regulations in Nepal can result in imprisonment, detention, fines, or being blacklisted, depending on the nature of the offense. The duration of captivity can vary, ranging from weeks to an extended period depending on the length of the investigation.

Arrest Notification: In the event of an arrest in Nepal, you have the right to request that the police or prison officials notify your Embassy or consulates.

Driving Under the Influence: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can lead to arrest or fines.

Illicit Drugs: The possession, purchase, or distribution of illegal drugs in Nepal is strictly prohibited. If caught engaging in any drug-related activities, you may face imprisonment.

Firearms and Ammunition: The import/export of firearms, ammunition, or items resembling weapons, such as jewelry imitations, is prohibited in Nepal.

Nepal Trekking Information

Natural Disaster Risks: Nepal’s unique geography poses a high risk of unpredictable natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, falling rocks, and soil erosion. The devastating Nepal Earthquake in April 2015 caused significant damage to mountainous areas and affected trekking and climbing trails. It is important to stay informed about the condition of Nepal before your visit, inform your loved ones of your itinerary, and ensure proper registration of trekking permits. Taking precautions and being prepared can help mitigate risks and ensure your safety.

Altitude Risks: When trekking above 18,000 feet, there is a high chance of experiencing acute mountain sickness (AMS) due to the thin air density and lack of hydration. AMS is easily curable by descending to a lower elevation, but it should not be ignored as it can be fatal. Staying hydrated, acclimatizing to the altitude, and considering medication are important preventive measures. It is strongly recommended to have supplemental travel and evacuation insurance to cover any emergencies.

Evacuation by Helicopter: Before your arrival in Nepal, it is advisable to obtain emergency evacuation insurance, especially if trekking or climbing is your main activity. In case of injury or being stranded in the mountains, helicopter rescue might be the only viable option. Choose a reputable and responsible rescue team and consult your travel agents for insurance options. Carry essential documents such as your passport and credit card details for any necessary payments.

Lodging and Travel: During peak trekking seasons, hotel rooms and tea houses can be in high demand, and availability may be limited. Pre-booking accommodations along your trekking route is recommended, considering that remote areas may have more basic facilities. Additionally, be prepared for possible flight delays or cancellations, particularly for flights to Lukla (Everest Base Camp trek) and Jomsom (Mustang trek). Allow for buffer days in your itinerary to account for such contingencies.

TIMS Card and Trekking Permits: All trekkers in Nepal are required to obtain a Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) card, which enhances safety and security in general trekking areas. You can apply for a TIMS card at the Trekking Agency Association of Nepal (TAAN) or the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) by submitting the necessary documents and fees. Trekking agencies can assist you in obtaining your TIMS card and other essential permits.

Special Permits for Restricted Areas: Certain areas in Nepal are designated as restricted and require special permits and fees. Visit www.nepalimmigration.gov.np or consult your travel agency for more information. It is important to fulfill the specific requirements for helicopter rescues in restricted areas to ensure timely assistance in case of a medical emergency.

Other Outdoor Activities: Apart from trekking, Nepal offers various outdoor adventure activities like swimming in Phewa Lake, paragliding, bungee jumping, rafting, and mountain biking. However, these activities come with their own risks. Swimming in lakes during the monsoon season can be dangerous due to flash floods. Paragliding accidents have occurred in the past, so ensure you prioritize your safety and follow all safety guidelines and recommendations.

Special Circumstances of Nepal Travel Information

Volunteering and Work Permits: In recent times, Nepal has seen an influx of foreign volunteers, and it is important to note that the Department of Immigration considers volunteering as work. Therefore, it is crucial to obtain a work permit specifically for volunteering in Nepal. A tourist visa is not sufficient and can result in serious consequences imposed by immigration authorities.

While many foreigners demonstrate generosity by volunteering and assisting organizations such as orphanages, especially those supporting individuals with disabilities, there are unfortunate scams where some organizations exploit the international platform to solicit donations under the guise of non-profit work. They may also request financial support from volunteers and misuse the funds. These organizations involve trafficked children and engage in child exploitation. It is essential to remain vigilant and thoroughly research genuine volunteering opportunities in Nepal. Stay updated with articles and reports from reputable sources, including the recent report on ethical volunteering by a U.S.-based NGO focused on “voluntourism.”

Currency and Money Matters: When traveling, it is necessary to complete a customs declaration form if you are carrying currency exceeding USD 5,000, as required by the Government of Nepal. Banks and money exchange offices in Nepal do not accept U.S.-issued traveler’s cheques or cash. It is advisable to exchange your cash USD for Nepalese Rupees (NPR) at a bank or authorized money exchange office, or withdraw money from ATMs. However, due to ATM scams, it is recommended to seek assistance from reputable banks and exchange offices. If you are traveling from India to Nepal, ensure that you do not carry Indian currency notes of 500 or 1000 denominations, as they are illegal in Nepal. You can exchange Indian currency of denominations 100 or less at the border or in banks.

It is important to retain a copy of the customs declaration form duly endorsed and stamped by customs officials to avoid any complications during your departure. Violating this requirement can lead to severe consequences, including the confiscation of valuables such as cash and jewelry, imposition of fines, or even imprisonment.

Customs Regulations: Nepal has complex customs regulations. Individuals are prohibited from carrying more than 50 grams of pure gold or gold jewelry exceeding this weight, as well as more than 500 grams of silver into Nepal. Violating these regulations can result in detention, confiscation of valuables, or the payment of fines to retrieve confiscated items.

Nepal has strict rules and regulations regarding the import and export of significant items. It is advisable to refrain from carrying valuable metals, artifacts of archaeological or religious importance, wildlife trophies, illegal drugs, firearms, and ammunition. Certain items such as household pets and communication equipment require special permits and procedures for importation via airlines. Additionally, operating drones in most regions of Nepal requires special permission from the Home Ministry and other relevant government authorities.

Foreign individuals wishing to donate items to schools, hospitals, and other social organizations in Nepal should obtain prior approval from the Ministry of Finance to waive customs fees. A formal requisition letter with detailed information about the imported items and the recipient organization in Nepal should be sent to the Secretary at the Ministry of Finance in Kathmandu. The request will be reviewed and processed on a case-by-case basis, which may take some time. The intended recipients should coordinate with the Ministry to expedite the request process. For further information, please visit https://www.customs.gov.np/.

Dual Nationality: Nepal does not recognize dual nationality. Nepali citizens who become foreign citizens automatically lose their Nepalese citizenship. Individuals holding dual passports may face difficulties when entering or exiting Nepal. However, overseas citizens of Nepalese origin can apply for a special visa called a “Non-resident Nepali” (NRN) Identity card. This ID card allows them to open local bank accounts, establish businesses

Safety and Security

Political-Related Violence: Nepal’s political landscape is often marked by fragmentation, leading to occasional tensions, bombings, violent incidents, and associated risks in various parts of the country. While these incidents do not directly target foreigners, they can result in damage to infrastructure, property, and individuals. Local groups may extort and threaten private businesses and aid organizations, including domestic and international schools in the Kathmandu Valley, and the Embassy is aware of these issues. The Terai region of Nepal, which shares a border with India, is particularly prone to violent political activities.

Bandhs: In Nepal, an enforced holiday known as a “Bandh” may occur due to political strikes or other unpredictable reasons. These Bandhs can disrupt education centers, transportation services, and office sectors for more than a day. They can be quite disruptive, sometimes even halting traffic. Supporters of the strikes can be committed to their cause to the extent that anyone not adhering to the Bandh may face harassment or assault. Generally, Bandh organizers allow ambulances and buses marked by the Nepal Tourism Board to operate. If you plan to travel during a Bandh, ensure your safety by reaching your hotel or the airport without unnecessary involvement in political demonstrations and passing through checkpoints smoothly.

Crime: Crimes that foreign tourists have encountered in Nepal can be categorized as follows, although they occur relatively infrequently:

Financial Crimes and Theft: Instances of pickpocketing and theft may occur in major tourist areas like Thamel and crowded public transportation. Take responsibility for securely storing your valuables, and if such an incident occurs, report it directly to the Nepal Tourist Police. Exchange currency only at reputable banks and hotels, and be cautious of ATM skimming scams, especially in Kathmandu. To ensure your safety, avoid walking alone in dark alleys, refrain from carrying large sums of money, and avoid wearing expensive jewelry that might make you a target for theft.

Violent Crimes: It is advisable to travel in groups, especially at night, or have members of Peregrine Treks accompany you. Reports of sexual offenses against foreign tourists have been documented in areas like Kathmandu, Pokhara, and remote mountainous regions. While such cases are rare, it is important to stay vigilant and have the emergency police contact number, 100, or the nearby police station number readily available. Solo travel can be enjoyable but also carries higher risks. Familiarize yourself with your surroundings, avoid accepting food or drinks from strangers, and keep in mind that while Nepal is known for its hospitality, it cannot guarantee the actions of all 29.3 million residents. Therefore, maintain caution and prioritize your safety.

Victims of Crime: In the unfortunate event that you become a victim of any of the aforementioned crimes, try to remain calm and composed. First, call the emergency number 100 and report your situation and location, as they are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crimes. You can also dial “1144” to reach the Tourist Police, who are available to assist you with excellent English language capabilities in popular tourist areas. Additionally, you can always contact your tour operator, embassy, or consulate in Kathmandu for further assistance.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it may be more comfortable for you to approach the Embassy before reporting the crime to local authorities. In such cases, the Embassy can provide support in the following ways:

Assisting you in finding appropriate medical care services Reporting the crime to the local police Contacting your family or friends with your written consent Providing a list of local attorneys Offering emergency loans for repatriation to the United States and limited medical support in cases of extreme need Arranging accommodation and flights back home Assisting with the replacement of a stolen or lost passport
