I'm going to Nepal on a camping trip, I live in Dubai and I have an Indian passport. Do I still need a visa to enter Nepal?


According to Timatic, the database used by airline staff, Indian nationals do not require a visa to enter Nepal, and even though you live in Dubai you still hold an Indian passport, which means you are fine. Although a note is made that handwritten passports are not permitted, and it should have six months validity upon arrival.

    All of the handwritten passports expired many years ago, so that should not be an issue. – Michael Hampton Jan 2 '20 at 19:42
  • Can also enter by air and land with a voter ID card. Also Indians have freedom of movement to Nepal, they can live and work there. – BritishSam Jan 3 '20 at 11:02
