Nepalese Ordinary Passport is issued for a period of 10 years. It is non-renewable; thereafter passport holders are required to apply for a new passport well within time before expiry, but not earlier than six months validity period. However, in case of accidental damage of the passport or use of all the pages meant for visa, one could apply for a new ordinary passport at any time.

A Nepali citizen would obtain ordinary Passport from the Consulate General of Nepal provided the applicant is within its consular districts and fulfills the requirements as outlined in the following paragraphs.
