Payment Methods & Details

We accept US Dollars, Nepali Rupees and U.S. Credit Cards for the payment. Please note that if you are paying in cash, do not mix the two currencies (US Dollars and Nepali rupees) to make the payment.

Additional Information

Please Note: because passports are printed in the United States, it may take about two to three weeks for your new passport to be ready for pick-up at the Embassy. All passport services must be done in person at the Embassy. You can schedule an appointment for passport services here: U.S. Citizens Services (state.gov)

We are not able to store any bags or belongings. Cell phones and other electronics are not allowed into the Embassy. You must make arrangements so that you arrive at the Embassy with only your passport and required interview materials, including your photo. If you have electronics, bags, and wallets with you, you will not be allowed into the Embassy. The Embassy will not store any personal items on your behalf. Absolutely no exceptions will be made. If you come with any additional items, your appointment will be rescheduled.
