Mechinagar (Nepali: मेचीनगर) is a municipality in Jhapa District, Mechi Zone, Nepal and is the main entry point from India on Nepal's eastern border. Nepal's custom office is in Kakarvitta (Nepali: काँकडभिट्टा), a section of the municipality.

Mechinagar municipality was created by combining Dhulabari (Nepali: धुलाबारी) and Kankarbhitta and Itabhatta (इटाभट्टा) Village Development Committee.

Mechinagar produces many agricultural resources. There are many tea estates including Tokla Tea Estate.

In Mechinagar, there are several castes. Majority are Brahmin (Hill) and Chhettri. Other remaining castes are Rajbanshi, Newar, Limbu, Rai, Meche, Dhimal etc.

Mechinagar Municipality had not tried to develop as much as it can. There were several cases of corruptions and other irregular activities. The development of this place is too much slower than any other parts.
