Please DO NOT collect in-kind contributions from overseas as they are very ineffective and expensive to ship. LOCALLY purchased supplies are far more efficient and help local economy.
I have a visa appointment booked. Is the consular section open? How do I reschedule my visa appointment?
All consular interviews are currently suspended at this time. Please keep checking the Embassy website regularly for updates:www.nepal.usembassy.gov
I am in Nepal – outside of the Kathmandu Valley. I need to get back to Kathmandu for my flight out of the country. What should I do?
Our general advice at this time is if they are safe they should shelter in place. After quakes are still going on and we don't know about the safety/possibility of internal travel. If believe you can travel safely to Kathmandu, some hotels are open and U.S. citizens can come to the U.S. Embassy for shelter. We are providing a place to sleep and access to food and water. International commercial flights are arriving and departing, but there are many delays and priority is being given to international relief efforts. The U.S. Embassy is providing regular shuttles between the Embassy and the airport.
I have specific medical, disaster relief, mountain rescue skills and would like to help.
Thank you. We are working at connecting skilled personal with coordinators in Nepal. Please contact the Embassy via email at firstname.lastname@example.org us your skills, current location and contact information.
