Nepal’s customs officials methodically scrutinize the origin of each shipment, delving into details like in-country ownership arrangements and the applicable taxes and duties on imports. Given that duties can climb up to a staggering 50%, it would be wise to consult with an Importer of Record experienced in Nepalese customs and import regulations to ensure your shipments remain compliant and clear customs smoothly.
Possibly, the trickiest part of importing into Nepal is securing approval from local banks. In Nepal, the local bank needs to green-light all your import documentation. Because of the intricate process and sluggish bureaucratic procedures, getting the banks’ nod can significantly extend the shipping timeline.

The vast Himalayan landscape also poses a significant challenge for delivering goods to remote areas.
