Can I get Nepal visa when I reach in Kathmandu airport?

There are two option to go to Nepal either by plane landing in Tribhuvan international airport or go through Sunauli boarder between Nepal and India. When you reach in Kathmandu airport you can get you visa within a few minute which is easy just fill up the form, get two p.p size photo s,passport that’s all you need than after you have to pay the visa charge which is as bellows:

1. 90 Days visa cost = 100 USD

3. 30 Days visa cost= 30 USD

If you go to Nepal from India boarder Sunauli you just need your passport, photo and money which I mentioned above than you will get visa. It is quite long drive but to explore better south to north of Nepal you can go to Nepal from boarder side.
