Whether you are just collecting general information on Germany or preparing to travel there for business, tourist or educational purposes, this website is designed to make life easier for you. We trust you will find useful information on a good number of subjects here. Numerous links will help you to get more detailed information on various issues.
As a rule, the English speaking visitor will have a slightly different purpose for visiting us than German nationals. You should not be surprised, therefore, if the two language versions available at our site do not provide identical contents.
The German Embassy will be closed on Tuesday, 12 December 2017.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR STUDENTS
The German Embassy Kathmandu would like to reiterate that public universities in Germany in general don't charge any tuition fees.

The German Embassy Kathmandu would like to inform that in the case of a visa refusal, certain private universities in Germany will not fully refund tuition fees paid in advance.
Please note that the German Embassy Kathmandu is unable to interfere in such cases.
