    The Embassy of the United States of America in Kathmandu, Nepal will transition to a new fee payment, appointment and document delivery service for the non-immigrant visa unit as of September 15, 2014. (There will be no change to the Embassy’s procedures for handling immigrant and diversity visas.) This new non-immigrant visa system, which is being implemented in phases at U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide, is designed to be more comprehensive and user-friendly. It replaces the current system of paying application fees and making a visa interview appointment at Nabil Bank locations in Nepal. In addition to the new online system, there will be a new call center with more hours for applicants to obtain information by phone, as well as by email. There is no charge for the call other than normal charges for a call within Nepal. Detailed information about the new visa application system will be posted at this website soon.   In Nepali (PDF 198KB) »
