Volunteer for Change Nepal does not organise visas for volunteers directly, however the visa process is simple.
We reccomend that once your placement is confirmed and your flight dates set, you either apply for a visa at the Nepal embassy in your country, or get a visa upon arrival from Kathmandu airport. A list of embassies is available here-
If you wish to get a visa on arrival please ensure you bring the above application form, a passport photo, and sufficient cash as detailed below for the visa
More information on visas is available on the Department of Immigration's website
Please note the visa fee is not included in the course fee, and is to be borne by the volunteers themselves.
For foreigners coming to Nepal for the first time in a calender year
Visas for Nepal are issued for a maximum of 150 days per calender year (01 January to 31 December) and cannot be renewed for more than 150 days. VfC will assist volunteers with the visa renewal process in Kathmandu
Volunteers are responsible for organising their own travel too and from Nepal. All volunteers must ensure they have comprehensive medical insurance prior to departing for Nepal. Flight and insurance costs remain the induvidual responsiblity of volunteers.
