Getting into Nepal & Visa Information

As Nepal is a landlocked country, one can enter Nepal either through roadways (via China or India) or airways. For now, Kathmandu is the only international airport, Tribhuvan International Airport. There are several daily international flights landing on this airport. Most of the nationals can get their visa after arriving at the international airport in Nepal, however few nationals have to get their visa before leaving their home country. Therefore, make sure to collect all the necessary information before planning a trip to Nepal.
