But there's a catch - my driving licence is Indian, so I should be able to get an International Driving Permit from India, shouldn't I?abhi1975 said:India can't issue International Driving Permits, permits are issued by the respective countries.
Yes, this is probably the right course of action. Just thought I'd find out your views first, especially given the 'official to official variation' that I've found common here. Thanks for the contact detailsYogesh Sarkar said:However best option would be to contact the Nepalese Consulate in Delhi to find out their views regarding this, though they might differ from official to official.
Ah, good idea. Will do that too.Talk to the Transport office where your licence was issued.
I had hoped this was the case. I can't see any reason why this should not apply to me, as my licence is exactly the same, but I'll need to check it out. If anyone has any more info on this rule I'd be grateful to have itand lastly with Indian Driving Licence Indians are allowed to drive in Nepal without any IDP, you might be covered under that rule.
Nope, not dual citizenship. I came here on a student exchange program, so I'm on a student visa. This gets me a residency permit, which allows me (after a bit of talking and a trip to the top man at the RTO ) to get an Indian DL.Edit: Are You under the dual-Citizenship scheme?, do share some more details about the system.
