Hi, I think NRN card is a very good deal for someone who plans to stay Nepal for longer period since it lets you own property, open bank account and also it gives you like 10 years of Nepal visa for just $520. But I dont see many people appying for it, are there any drawbacks of having it that I am not able to see.

i wonder if it lets you own a real state house /land with card . virtually a NRN card has no legal recognition other than opening a bank account that may be reason that many people are not interested . its only good for politics , nothing real good for common people

First, NRN card is costly and hassle to apply (I know it is only one shot to apply and pay). You can't buy properties or own them. Even your ancestral ones! It will only help you to travel and stay in Nepal without having any visa issue. You can make a big investment in some sectors though but it won't be easy and fair, if you are not familiar with political and bureaucratic loop holes.

I dont where you guys are getting this idea that NRN are not allowed to own property in Nepal. Is not that another reason people get NRN card? There is some ceiling on how much you can own though:
(a) Maximum 2 Ropani, in Kathmandu Valley,
(b) Maximum 8 Kattha, in municipalities of the terai
(c) Maximum 4 Ropani, in other municipalities except
mentioned in (a) and (b),
(d) One Bigaha, in village development committees of
the terai district, except mentioned in part (b), or
(e) 10 Ropani, in other areas except mentioned in (a),
(b), (c) and (d)

@Kevin, I do hear something about not being able to get ancestoral property after getting NRN card though, which does not make sense and cannot find any source on it.

I am not expert and still trying to find more info. Nepal politics and PR card will keep changing. I heard you cannot own ancestral property but you can buy new one within limits. If U visit Nepal quite often, it will make sense.

The reason behind Nepalese staying in US is they said life in Nepal is tough, we can't make money in Nepal,, bla bla, ...and
once they become US citizen, they want NRN card, and they reveal they have lands, bunch of money in bank accounts, three houses, and get upset with Nepalese Govt not providing the life and easiness they want to deal with Nepal.

Nepalese people they lie in every steps, they lie to US Gov for to get Green card, and they lie to Nepalese Gov to get NRN Cards...just mind blowing.

SIS why do you wanna get NRN card now... I started this post almost 2 years ago when NRN citizenship was still under plan.. now you can just apply for NRN citizenship which is free. About the family plan for NRN card.. I dont believe they offer that, it should be the same $520 per person from my understanding.
