How to Get a Business Visa for Nepal

Nepal Business Visa

Nepal Business Visa

Are you headed to Nepal on business? Unlike a lot of other countries, Nepal defines business visas a bit differently. It is not as simple as entering and voila you have your visa. However, if you are just coming a short business trip, go ahead and get a visa on arrival in Nepal…don’t go through the hassle of getting this long term business visa.

As you will note here at the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Business Visa for Nepal is issued to the following foreigners and their family members on the recommendation of a concerned agency:

  • Foreigners having obtained a license to make investment in any trade or industrial enterprises within Nepal or authorized representatives of such trade or enterprises;
  • Foreigners having obtained a license to make investment in order to carry on export trade from Nepal;
  • Foreigners who visit Nepal from third countries, purchase and export goods manufactured in Nepal or make a purchase order for exports.

The Business Visa for Nepal will be issued for a period not exceeding five years at a time. It is extendable.
