Welcome to the webpage of the Embassy of Denmark in Kathmandu.
Namaste and welcome to the Embassy of Denmark in Kathmandu’s website. This website is meant so serve as your gateway to information on both Nepal and Denmark.
The close ties between Denmark and Nepal were established with diplomatic relations almost 50 years ago on 15th of December 1967. In 1989 Nepal became a programme country for Danish development assistance and the Danish Embassy in Kathmandu opened in April 1991. Ever since, the relations between Denmark and Nepal have continued to strengthen and develop even further.
The Embassy of Denmark in Nepal is first and foremost responsible for the bilateral relations between the two countries and for the implementation of development cooperation in Nepal.
The key priority for the Danish engagement in Nepal is to support the Nepalese people in their right to a better life based on peace, stability, democracy, social and economic progress and respect for human rights. The Danish Embassy in Kathmandu is working in two teams focusing on Green Growth and Human Rights, Good Governance and Peace.
Nepal has for many years been a popular travel destination for Danes, who have headed to Nepal to experience the beauty of the Nepali nature and culture. Consular assistance to Danish residents and tourists is, therefore, an important part of the Embassy’s mission. The Embassy is also helping people coming to Denmark and is responsible for issuing visa for Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Norway and Estonia.
Last year, the Danish Government announced that Denmark will be phasing out the Danish development support to Nepal, and by the end of 2017, close the Embassy. It is my sincere hope that the important results that have been achieved in Nepal with Danish development support will remain.
With the hope that the strong relationship between Denmark and Nepal will continue to develop in the future, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the Embassy of Denmark in Nepal. I also encourage everyone to follow the embassy’s activities on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/DenmarkinNepal
