It generally takes 2 to 3 working days after the enrollment. However, if the details of citizenship, National Identity Card, old passport, etc. are not verified or photograph as per ICAO criteria is not met, further investigation is required. Unfortunately, passports may not be available on time despite emergency service due to software upgrades or any other technical reasons. So, the Department kindly requests the applicants to book tickets or make necessary travel arrangements only after the passport is received.

The regular service for ePassports is available from all the District Administration Offices in Nepal and all Nepali Diplomatic Missions abroad.

Passports will be available in all the three districts of Kathmandu Valley within a week. Passports will be available within 15 days on the Mahendra Highway outside Kathmandu and surrounding districts and districts with air facilities. After receiving the passport at the district administration offices, an SMS will be sent to the applicant's mobile to collect the passport.
