Recent experience: The embassy replied my two emails (during the past 2 weeks) within 24 hours with all the information I needed. Email seems to be a good way to ask any questions you may have.

Did anyone receive passport before 3 months by chance? I applied on October 25 and my passport is still being processed in Nepal. Embassy's email now says it takes 'at least' 3 months

Mine took 4 months but I'm guessing it took 'em an extra month due to Dashain, Tihar, Chhath, Nyu Dya Bhintuna, et al.

With the passport application, do we have to send a return envelop also?

One of the instructions for the application for passport renewal says " Original or notarized copy of marriage certificate is required in case the applicant wishes to change the surname after marriage. "
What should a person do if she has already changed her surname in her passport? The citizenship card still has her maiden name. Should she still send the marriage certificate? Does anybody has similar experience. Thanks in advance.

You should pick up the phone and call the embassy, inquiring about it. That's what you should do.

What an embarrassment to come on Sajha and ask about passport problems. If Nepal Embassy was a great organization to solve problem via email/phone or their website, we would not be asking question here. Nepal is only worried to promote to change flag, national anthem song, regional language, free state, exact paper size, great picture with no shadow behind, exact signature to draw money from bank, whole ancestor names to open a bank account etc but being in USA, an organisation has never adopted great customer skills. I think people work in embassy are all political appointees. Do they come to Sajha and read our comment and drag from here to solve problems??

Just a simple question, where did you guys print the form in A4 size paper like in staples, fedex and where did you took the photos too? As I don't want to take chance for the forms to return for a simple mistake. And what does " If applying by post a paid return envelope" means/

Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

I bought A4 size paper from Amazon. Took photos myself and printed at Walmart. "If applying by post …." means if you are not applying in person, you have to send a paid return envelope. You can go to FedEx location and tell them you want a paid return envelope.

Hope that helps.
