Common Questions Every Tourist Needs the Answer To
When you feel confident with how to get your visa, then you can turn your focus to finding out all the other things you need to know before you head off. We have answered some of the questions that we get asked so that you can find the answers out with ease.
How Can I Get a Visa on Arrival for This Country?
If you are not entering by air then you need to apply for a VoA instead. To do this you need to head to the arrivals desk, complete an arrivals card and then make your payment and take the receipt provided.
When you have the arrival card completed and the payment receipt, you can then go to the immigration desk and queue up to have your documents checked and your authorisation issued.
Is This A Good Place for Tourists to Visit?
Nepal is generally a safe location for tourists to visit. However, there are often incidents of pickpocketing when people carry handbags or leave money in their pockets.
To avoid being the victim of this type of crime, you should try to avoid using a handbag and use a body pouch to store valuables so that they can not be taken out of your pockets.
Is it Easy to Call Australia When I Am in Nepal?
If you are trying to call home, then you should be able to when you are in a large town or city. Telecommunication facilities in rural areas are extremely limited, and you cannot get a mobile phone signal in most areas.
Is Photography Freely Permitted in This Country?
You can take photos when you are in the country, but you need to remember that you cannot take photos of any military bases, checkpoints or members of the armed forces. If you are found to be taking photos of these places and people, then you may face legal consequences and will have your photos seized.
Can I Extend My Stay in Nepal?
You can apply for an extension at the immigration desk at the airport or at the immigration offices in larger towns. Most extension requests are granted, but it is important to remember that you are not permitted to stay in the country for more than 150 days in each calendar year.
It is also important to note that you cannot leave the country if your visa has expired and so you need to apply for an extension before heading to the departure lounge of the airport before you leave. Should you try to leave without a valid visa in place, then you are expected to pay a fine based on the number of days you have overstayed in the country.
