Export From Nepal? A complete Guidance to Exporting

Exporting goods from Nepal has historically been difficult due to the lack of expert courier service providers around the country. Additionally, with infrastructure limitations, it has been challenging to transport products safely and cost-effectively. However, in recent years, the ability to export from Nepal will become increasingly easier thanks to newly built international airports in Pokhara and Bhairahawa.


With new global delivery service providers, such as NepXpress, the process of shipping Nepali-produced goods has been streamlined and made available throughout the country. This means that more and more businesses are looking to find out about the process of exporting from Nepal.


In this article, we look to answer all your questions about how to export from Nepal. In this how-to guide, we look to answer all your questions about how to export from Nepal. By breaking down every step for exporters, you will be able to begin shipping your products internationally in a safe and secure manner.

How to Export from Nepal?

Exporting commodities out of Nepal is subject to several laws and restrictions. The Department of Customs and the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Supplies, both of which are under the Ministry of Finance, are in charge of export regulations in Nepal. Apart from a few things that are restricted, most products made in Nepal can be exported after complying with the requirements detailed in this guide.

To ensure a business abides by the rules and regulations of Nepal, you must first register as a trading company or a manufacturing industry. You can register your home-based business as a private enterprise at your local ward office if you don't have any workers. Afterward, you will need to obtain a PAN number, VAT number (Both from the local Inland Revenue Department office), and an EXIM code in order to start exporting. Look at the Government of Nepal's Export Readiness Checker tool for guidance.


Next, you will need a business partner in the nation you wish to export to, negotiate trade terms, including the cost and quantity of the goods to be shipped, the mode of transportation, the choice of a freight forwarder and an insurer, the choice of payment methods, and any other formalities required.. 


In order to help you with this process, this guide breaks down everything you need to do to export from Nepal in eight easy steps. The next sections will assist you in learning everything there is to know about exporting legally and safely to a foreign country.

Steps to Export from Nepal:

To help you export your products from Nepal, follow these eight steps. The eight steps help businesses while exporting from Nepal to other foreign countries. These instructions serve as a guideline; however, to be successful while shipping internationally, you should look for more information and best practices while exporting.

Step 1: Locate Business Partners

Choose the nations you wish to export your goods to first. You can discover possible locations and partners by attending trade shows and conferences. Additionally, you can utilize your connections living abroad to discover new potential markets.

Step 2: Conclude Sales Contract

Once you've found a trade partner, you will need to close the deal with them. This means you will need to negotiate over the cost of your goods, the number of items to be shipped, the delivery date, a potential payment method, and the overall conditions of your trade. Remember that after the sales contract is signed, you must send the importer the Pro-forma Invoice and request that your trade partner issue a Purchase Order. Also, remember that all financial transactions must be made through banking channels. 

You will need to discuss the commercial trade terms with your trading partner when you negotiate the conditions of your partnership with them. These internationally accepted trade terms (INCOTERMS) between you and your trading partner serve as a reference for the nature of agreements for the purchase and worldwide transportation of goods. The INCOTERMS inform you, most simply, about the following three points for your partnership:

  • Costs: Who is in charge of the expenses associated with the shipment at certain stages of its journey?
  • Ownership: Who controls the items at any given time during the trip?
  • Liability: Who is liable for paying for items damaged within a specific period of a shipment's transit?

Step 3: Obtaining the required Certificates

You will need to obtain various certificates while exporting goods from Nepal to a foreign country. There are two main certificates you will need to get, however, occasionally you may need additional certifications.

Certificate of Origin:

Certificates of Origin (CoO) are important while exporting large quantities of goods. This will help you claim duty concessions while exporting. The Trade and Export Promotion Center (TEPC) issues certificates of origin to businesses. Contact information is available at TEPC Pulchowk in Lalitpur

Additionally, a certificate of origin can be issued by the regional district chambers of commerce for the Federation of Nepalese Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Nepal Chamber of Commerce, and Confederation of Nepalese Industries. For more information on CoO, use the following link from the Government of Nepal: Certificate of Origin.

GSP Certificate:

The Generalized System of Preference (GSP) allows preferential duty treatment of imported goods from beneficiary nations. These benefits may include a decreased import duty rate and a duty-free or quota-free rate. The concept is a facility provided to developing countries by some wealthy countries and was agreed upon at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) ("donor countries").

Additional Certificates to export from Nepal (if necessary):

Different certificates could be needed depending on the kind of goods you are exporting. For instance, you might need a certificate if you're exporting agricultural goods or certification from the Federation of Handicrafts Association if you're exporting handicrafts. Make sure to inquire with your local representatives to learn the steps that must be taken based on specific products.

Step 4: Financing your Exports from Nepal 

You must create a bank account at one of Nepal's Commercial Banks with Category "A" status to conduct business as an exporter. 

This is important as you will need to advise the bank of your potential incoming payment. You are required to go to the Foreign Exchange Division of the commercial bank and produce the documentation listed in the letter of credit's terms for the transfer of revenue. These documents are likely to be the following:

  1. Bill of Lading
  2. Certificate of Origin
  3. Commercial Invoice
  4. Pro-forma Invoice and
  5. Packing List

Step 5: Appoint a Freight Forwarder

If you need to learn how to ship anything, we advise hiring a freight forwarder to handle your shipments. Freight forwarders are experts who focus on shipping goods from your factories to importers. 


This is where you can contact NepXpress. We know all about export and import-related procedures and can help you with the overall process.

Step 6: Appoint Transporter

To transport your products from your factory to the Customs office of your choice, you will need to employ a delivery service provider. Depending on the number of products being shipped, your location, and the port the goods are being shipped to will determine the cost of transportation. NepXpress has 120 branches around Nepal and can help facilitate the delivery of your goods in a cost-effective and safe manner - fill out our pickup form to get started today!.

Step 7: Appoint Customs Agent

When your products enter the customs premises, customs agents assist you in clearing customs. To help you with your customs-related operations, we suggest hiring a permanent Customs Agent. There are many offices for customs agents close to the location of the customs office of your choosing.

Step 8: Clear Customs

To clear your products at customs, you must designate a Customs Agent or a Freight Forwarder. Items exported from Nepal are not subject to export fees. During the transshipment process inside Customs, inspection fees of less than NRS 200 and loading and unloading fees will be assessed.

कहिले खुल्ला दुबई - नेपाल हावाई सेवा?

कोरोनाको दोश्रो लहरले नेपालमा लकडाउन सुरु भएको दुई महिना पुग्न थाल्यो। अप्रिल २६ मा बसेको क्याबिनेट बैठकले लिएको निर्णयले नेपालमा पूर्ण लकडाउन को घोषणा गरेको थियो। अप्रिल २९ तारिख देखी सुरु गरिएको लकडाउन थपीदै असार १ गते सम्म पनि कहिले खुल्ने टुंगो लागिसकेको छैन। संक्रमितको संख्या एक तिहाइले घट्न थालेपछि धेरैले असार देखि काठमाडौं उपत्यकामा निषेधाज्ञा खुल्छ भनेर सोचेका थिए। तर त्यसो हुने सम्भावना अझै देखिदैन। उपत्यकाका सिडिओको बसेको बठैकले उपत्यकामा जारी निषेधाज्ञालाई थप एक साता लम्ब्याउने निर्णय गरेको छ। सोही अनुसार निषेधाज्ञा आगामी असार ७ गतेसम्म जारी रहने छ। यद्यपि यसअघि बिहान ९ बजेसम्म मात्र खोल्न दिइएको खाद्यान्न पसललाई बिहान ११ बजेसम्म खोल्न दिइने भएको छ।

हावाइ उडान पूर्णरुपमा ठप्प पारी सुरु गरिएको लकडाउन अहिले डेढ महिना बितिसक्दा भारत सहित केही देशहरुमा आंशिक उडान सुचारु छन्। 

केही दिन बिराई हुने एस्ता उडानले केही सहजता थपेको छ भने धेरै पिडा थपिदिएको छ। बिशेष गरेर खाडी मुलुकमा बैदेशिक रोजगारी गर्ने श्रमिकहरुको लागि भाडादार उच्च रहेको उनिहरुको भनाई छ। कम्पनिमा श्रम सम्झौता सकिएका र भविश्यको आशामा टुरिष्ट भिषामा यूएई लगाएत खाडी मुलुक आइपुगेका नेपाली अहिले मर्कामा परेका छन्। कोरोनाका कारण काम नपाईने र नेपाल फर्कनकालागी हवाइ सेवा बन्द हुँदा भिसा सकिएर फाइन तिर्नु पर्नेहरुको पिडा सुनीनसक्नु छ। युएईमा रहेर नेपालीहरुको हकहित र सेवामा समर्पित संस्था नेपाल एसोसिएसनका अनुसार युएईमा मात्र अलपत्र पर्ने हरुको संख्या पाँच हजार हाराहारी छ।

चर्टर्ड र केही देशहरुमा मात्र सिमित रहेको हवाइ उडान तोकिएको स्वास्थ मापदण्द पुरागरी सुचारु गर्न बिभिन्न संघ संस्थाहरुले माग गरेपनी त्यसको सुनुवाई हुन सकेको छैन। नेपाल एअरलाइन्सका यूएई म्यानेजर टिकाराम पंगेनिका अनुसार जुन २३ र ३० तारिखमा दुबईदेखी काठमाडौं सिधा बिशेष चार्टर्ड फ्लाइट हुनेछ। वाइडबडी जहाजले एक पटक मा २६४ जना यत्रु बोक्ने जानकारी दिनुभयो।


बिदेशबाट नेपालमा सामान कसरी कुरियर गर्ने?

बिदेशमा कामको सिलसिलामा होस् या अध्ययनको सिलसिलामा जो सुकै नेपालीलाई घर परिवारलाई अथवा साथी संगिलाई केही उपहार या सामान पठाइदिउँ भन्ने हुन्छ। आफु भन्दा साना भाईबहिनीहरुले त फोन कपडा वा नेपालमा सहजै उपलब्ध नहुने कुरा मागेर हैरान नै हुन्छ। 

कुरियर गर्न खोज्दा धेरै जनालाई समानको मुल्य भन्दा अन्तरराष्ट्रिय कुरियर माध्ययमबाट पठाउने खर्च महंगो पर्न  गएको घटना तपाईंहामीले नसुनेको कमै छौँ होला। तपाईंहामी नचाँहदा नचाँहदै पनि कुरयर माध्यमलाई महंगो मुल्य तिर्न वाध्य हुनुपर्ने अवस्था छ।

नेपालमा हुलाक सेवा अन्तररास्ट्रिय स्तरको भइनसकेको अवस्थामा बिगत पाँच बर्ष देखी डोमेस्टिक कुरियर सेवा प्रदान गर्दै आएको नेपएक्सप्रेसले एकै पटक अमेरिका र दुबइबाट आफ्नो अन्तरराष्ट्रिय सेवा बिस्तार गरेको  छ। नेपालबाट संसारको जुन सुकै कुनामा समान पठाउन सकिने नेपएक्सप्रेसमा संसारको जुनकुनै कुनाबाट नेपालमा सामान ल्याउन पनि मिल्छ। कुरियर क्षेत्रमै नेपाली कुरियर कम्पनिले आयात र निर्यातमा सेवा आँफै उपलब्ध गराउन आँटेको पहिलो पटक हो। 

धेरै नेपालीको पहुँचमा सेवा पुग्ने गरी मुल्य समायोजन गरिएको नेपएक्सप्रेसले भन्सार सेवा पनि उपलब्ध गराउँदै आएको छ। घरबाटै सामान उठाइ घर सम्मै पुर्याउने कार्यकालागी नेपालभर एक सय पैँतिस भन्दा बढी एजेन्ट हरु परिचालित छन। 

प्रबिधिलाई आफ्नो मेरुदण्ड  मान्ने नेपेक्सप्रेसमा संसारको जुनकुनै देशमा रहेर पनि कुरियर सेवा लिन सकिन्छवेबसाइटमोबाइल एप मार्फत पनि सेवा लिन सकिने नेपएक्सप्रेसका सम्पूर्ण सेवा र मुल्य स्वत: एपले नै देखाउछ। आगामी दिनमा आफ्ना सेवा सुबिधा तथा प्रबिधिलाई समय सापेक्ष र दुरुस्त राख्दै नेपालीहरुकै सेवामा खटिने प्रण गर्दछ।

Steps to Fight Corona (COVID -19)

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans.  In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19. COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

How does Corona Virus Spread?
People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. This is why it is important to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick.

Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. COVID-19 is still affecting mostly people in China with some outbreaks in other countries. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
