Working and living in Nepal – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Nepal requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Nepalese expat life. Living abroad in Nepal raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Nepal?ʺ, ʺWhat is the expat community in Nepal like? Does the country still attract "dropouts" like in the 1960s and 1970s?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Kathmandu should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Nepalese municipality in Birgunj?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Nepal is quite laborious and time-consuming.
