Which Visa is Right for my Visit?
 

The type of visa for which you apply - and the requirements for getting a non-immigrant visa - depends on your purpose of travel. If you are unsure as to which visa is the right one for you, contact consktm@state.gov with your questions.

The U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu strongly urges visa applicants to not make any travel arrangements until they actually have in their possession a visa issued by the Embassy.
