Foreigners indented to enter Nepal must require a visa to Nepal. No Foreigner is entitled to enter or stay in Nepal without a valid visa. Though Indian nationals don’t require a visa to enter Nepal since Nepal maintains an open border with India but they should show a valid national identification if entering Nepal by air like a passport or other identification issued by the government of India. One’s passport must be valid for at least six months after the proposed date of entry. Foreigners can obtain a Nepal visa at the following entry points to Nepal upon arrival or they can also obtain a Nepal visa prior to Nepal arrival from the Nepalese embassy abroad.
