Nepal Residential Visa

Nepal Residential Visa

If you are coming to Nepal to reside, you are going to need to get the Nepal Residential Visa.  There are more reasons for eligibility for this type of visa than I have space on this page, but for the whole scoop you can read this boring document prepared by the Department of Immigration.

Go to my Nepal visa page for information on other types of visas for Nepal.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Nepal Residential Visa.
