The need of Visa or permit for the Indian citizens travelling to Nepal is levied off as per the Indo-Nepal treaty that allows citizens of both Nepal and India with the right of free movement where the citizens of both the countries can travel across borders without a valid passport or visa. The only requirement is of a valid government-issued identification proof that determines the individuals as citizens of either Nepal or India. 


Passports are only needed by the individuals who intend to travel by air to Nepal from any other country other than India. Indian citizens travelling by air to Nepal do not need to possess a passport as any form of government-issued identification document serves the purpose and allows the individual to enter the Nepalese province. For all Indian citizens who intend to travel to Nepal via land on vehicles, need to get an entry pass before they enter Nepal, and this is mandatorily checked on the Indo-Nepal borders. 
This visa rule is applicable on to the Indian citizens who travel to Nepal, whereas other individuals from any other country must read all accepted norms relating to the Nepal Visa requirements before they plan to travel to Nepal for any purpose of visit.
