From 1st April 2010, all trekkers are legally required to obtain a TIMS card before they enter any trekking route or region in Nepal. The information you provide gives the relevant Nepali authorities a record of your personal details, trekking area, trekking route, trekking agency, duration, etc. in case of emergency, and also helps them control illegal trekking operations. Trekkers are required to keep a TIMS card with them throughout their trek along with a copy of their passport in case they are needed for verification. Your TIMS card has to be shown at national park check posts, conservation area check posts and police check posts when requested.
TIMS cards are non-transferable and valid only for single entry into an area.
TIMS Card is not required for the following:
Conservation Area or National Park (per person entry for Foreign Nationals)
Special trekking permits are required to visit designated areas of Nepal and are issued by the Department of Immigration. These designated areas are open only for group trekkers. And a trekking permit will not be issued to individual trekkers for such areas. Permits should only be acquired through registered trekking agencies in Nepal. Resident diplomats are exempt from this type of permit.
