Important Passport Information

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 up 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.

For the safety of applicants and Embassy staff, we will be taking measures to limit interaction and the exchange of items whenever possible. For this reason, your interview experience will be different than previous visits. You must follow these rules, as well as all guidance given by Embassy security, at all times.

Please do not show up more than 10 minutes early to your appointment. It is essential that we do not have large groups in our waiting areas, so it is important that everyone arrive according to the appointed time.

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.

Applicants must wear face masks at all times — except for a brief moment at the start of the interview in order to verify applicants’ identities. No masks will be provided by the Embassy. If you do not have a mask, you will not be allowed into the Embassy. You will be expected to maintain social distancing (2 meters) while at the Embassy.

These procedures have been implemented to protect the health of applicants and our staff at the Embassy. We thank you for understanding and for following the above guidelines throughout this process.
