The immigration department has started e-visa, online payment service, Electronic Travel Authorization and Trekking Permits. Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayankaji Shrestha inaugurated the service on 9th of February, 2024.
From Friday, the department has started providing automated services to the immigration administration completely online. According to this, the service will be available at home by fully digital and automatic operation in the immigration department and its offices.
The first customer of the online payment service started by the department is Nilhari Bastola, president of Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN), and the e-visa was given to a foreign citizen.
