Kathmandu, April 18
Nepal has significantly decreased the fee for a multiple-entry five-year study visa for United States citizens to USD 160.
The Department of Immigration says the visa fee was USD 360 until now, but it has been decreased thanks to a cabinet decision last month.
The decision has already come into effect from Friday last week, the Nepali New Year.
The department’s spokesperson Kamal Prasad Pandey says the decision based on reciprocity follows the US government’s decision to reduce the student visa fee to the same scale last year.
