Sending to NYC for Nepal visa pre-trip

I sent off my passport to the NYC Nepali embassy, to arrange for my Nepali visa in advance

instead of doing it upon arrival to KTM. I did NOT send an envelope

with postage attached for them to send my passport and visa

back to me. Was I supposed to? Any suggestions for how

to remedy this situation? We leave in two weeks.

Hi,

How about sending them urgent (post) letter mentioning them your suitation and about envelope. and include prepaid registered 1st class empty envelope to be delivered to your address. Please don't forget to call them or send some form of id photo copy that identifies you are the main passport holder.

Thanks for your kind reply. I find it strange that I was supposed to supply my own

envelope, and missed that instruction. Your ideas are good and I'll follow up

with them on Monday.

Hi,

i have just checked the webpage and it says " its under construction". So, i couldn't get the list of the public holiday. www.un.int/wcm/content/site/nepal/pid/16619

Most likely, Nepalese are having their greatest festival Dashain at this time so i think embassy was closed due to that reason. In nepal, all the governemnt offices including embassies remained closed from 11th oct to 19th oct. So, it could be the reason too and they will again remained closed on 3rd,4th and 5th of Nov due to Tihar festival. These two festival are the major festival of Nepalses people so overseas nepalese diplomats will be on holiday

Did you try calling this number Telephone: (212) 370-3989

Good luck

Just an update, we called every number and can't even leave a voice mail. We're just going to get a VOA instead. Not worth the time.

Press 0 to get an operator. This worked for me. Also, Sandyha (San dia) in NYC was

an amazing help to me. If you get her, tell her hi from "Mea."

Hi all,

Thanks for your help and ideas.

My situation is totally resolved! I am so thankful for pressing "0" and getting Sandyha in the NYC visas area.

She rocked. She found all my paperwork and held it while I posted an envelope with tracking and postage paid to the office so they could return my visas.

Lesson: Must send a trackable, postage paid envelope in order to get visas sent out!

Pressing 0 may get you an operator. It worked for me in the NYC office. Good luck!
