Trekking Permits

TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) Card

From 1 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 cards are not required for

  • Expedition members who have the necessary permits to climb mountains.
  • Visitors in controlled areas permitted by the Department of Immigration.
  • Foreign guests invited by the Government of Nepal Authorities from different diplomatic missions in the country, who are holding official letter/s and traveling at their own risk.
