Make the most of living and working in Kathmandu

Expat living in Kathmandu raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Nepalese authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺHow do I best go about getting utilities (water, propane, electricity, phone…) for my new flat?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend real-estate agents in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Kathmandu takes a lot of time. Our Kathmandu expat guide is there to make your relocation to Kathmandu as easy as possible. Starting with expat institutions and clubs to information about culture & sights, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Kathmandu.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Kathmandu. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world - from living in Paris to living in Jersey City.
