Important:

The Document delivery centers at Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Birgunj, Pokhara, Bhairahawa and Narayangarh are operational for limited hours between 10 am to 2 pm only till further notice, due to the ongoing restrictions.


The U.S. Mission to Nepal understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee. Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.


Please note that the United States Embassy in Nepal is closed to routine consular services until further notice, including appointments for all classes of nonimmigrant visas. However, we have been able to process a limited number of certain immigrant visas including IR1, IR2, CR1, and CR2 cases. Any MRV fee paid is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at https://www.ustraveldocs.com/np/np-niv-expeditedappointment.asp to request an emergency appointment.

Applicants for H1B, H2B, L1, and certain J categories and their dependents covered by Presidential Proclamation 10052 should request an appointment only if you have reason to believe you may qualify for one of the exceptions listed in the Proclamation here.

The Presidential Proclamations suspending the entry of foreign nationals who were physically present within 14 days in certain countries prior to their entry or attempted entry into the United States (Presidential Proclamations 9984, 9992, 9993, 9996, and 10041), and the Presidential Proclamations suspending the entry of certain immigrants and nonimmigrants who present a risk to the U.S. labor market following the coronavirus outbreak (Presidential Proclamations 10014 and 10052) remain in effect. For details about these Presidential Proclamations click here


On January 31, 2020, a new Presidential Proclamation (“Presidential Proclamation 9983”) was issued which added to the ongoing travel restrictions of P.P. 9645 by expanding them to the nationals of six additional countries. The restrictions only apply to immigrant visas and/or diversity visas, not nonimmigrant visas. More information is available at this link.


 The Consular Exchange Rate is periodically revised based on the prevailing conversion rate. Before submitting your payment, please verify that the visa fee on your deposit slip matches the current consular exchange rate listed on the visa fee page.
