Nepal Visa-on-Arrival Prices

Nepal, a great hiking and mountain-climbing destination, with a great deal of local colour and culture, boasts a visa-on-arrival system to attract tourists.

These visas are usually issued at the airport in Nepal.

Canadian tourists can purchase a 15 day, 30 day, or 90 day tourist visa upon arrival at the airport in Nepal.

The on-arrival tourist visa fees are US$25 for 15 days; US$40 for 30 days; and US$100 for 90 days.

If you need an actual paper visa, which is fairly rare, we can assist you with that process.

India Expands E-VISA System

With the coming of spring, India has greatly expanded and refined their wonderful e-Visa system.

Effective immediately India now allows people to arrive in India at any of twenty-four (24) major airports and three (3) major seaports.

This means CRUISE PASSENGERS going to India may now be able to use e-Visas if their first port of arrival is Cochin Port, Goa Port or Mangalore Port.

The airport arrival scheme is now available at the following 24 airports:
Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Calicut, Chennai, Chandigarh, Cochin, Coimbatore, Delhi, Gaya, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mangalore, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Tiruchirapalli, Trivandrum, Varanasi

A great new feature is that applicants can send in their request as early as 120 days (4 months) prior to entering India.

Even better is the fact that the new e-Visa is valid for two (2) entries as of now, and that holders of the new version of the e-Visa can stay for a maximum of 60 days.

Canadians are also allowed to exit India from any authorized "Immigration Check Posts" (ICP) inside India. This expands your travel and flight and cruise options.
