Hi all, just wondering if anyone knows how long it takes to get the TIMS permit in Kathmandu? Do you just turn up with passport photos and you get it the same day?

Thanks for your help!

Hello, yes you need one working day to get all necessary trekking permits. You should have passport size photo and fill the form in Tourism board in Kathmandu/Pokhara. It will cost you 2000 Rupees. If you have further queries please feel free let me know. Thanks

yeah, for sure ! if you have your passport and photo with you, you will get TIMS and permit within 2 hours


you can get them at the counter of the tourist service centre in Kathmandu, there is also a TIMS office more conveniently located in Thamel
