Yes! In order to stay in the country of Nepal, you will need to apply for a tourist visa. Nepal does not grant study visas for Bible Colleges, therefore students must apply for a tourist visa.
An American and Nepali member of our team will be at the airport to greet you and will arrange for you to be transported with your luggage to the campus. We will also arrange for your transport to the airport when you depart.
Please email your confirmed flight schedule to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can arrange flight pick-up for you and confirm the exact dates you will be in-country.
You will be able to get your visa upon arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport.
