Visa policy of Nepal
The visa policy of Nepal is relatively liberal, allowing citizens of almost all nations to obtain a tourist visa on arrival. Citizens of India do not need a visa for Nepal because the 1950 Indo-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship allows free movement of people and goods between the two nations.
