Heh guys, My fiance is preparing his house for my arrival but I have always have to know before I go.

I need advice on banks, cell phone, and the like.

Thanks very much.
Jean

Oregon here..If you are American you will find Standard Chartered bank difficult. With the US reporting laws by foreign banks, they are not excited to have American customers. Nabil Bank is good compared to others. NIBL is also good but not always as easy. Each branch of the same name bank is a different experience. Open your accounts at the branch closest to where you live unless you find that branch not very good. Cell phones are easy here. I use NCell. I have a factory unlocked phone from the US. Take your passport to and Ncell office and get a sim card. There is decent 3g wireless in most areas of Kathmandu and even outside. It only costs about a dollar to get the sim. Home internet service is also good and affordable. I use WorldLink and Vianet. Both are good most of the time. WorldLink is 20mbps so we can stream easily. Transportation is a challenge. Bring several pairs of good shoes. It is hard to find good quality shoes here. Mostly you need something you can walk around the city with. Remember its rough and dirty so walking with open toes is not a great idea.

He'll Oregon, Thanks for the heads up.
Nabil bank sounds good but Google is telling me that you can't transfer to ur money back to the states.
Im thinking about Nepal PayPal.
Any other info from you would be helpful if you have the time.

It's a one way ticket. You are not allowed to send money out of Nepal unless you have a Foreign Direct Investment company and everything is approved by the government. This is a very difficult achievement. There is no Nepal PayPal. The only way to get money out of Nepal is to carry it out when you leave.

There is no legal way to load money into a PayPal account from Nepal. It is the same as the banks. Money can come in from foreign bank accounts but no money can go out of the country. There are very strict anti money laundering laws that don't allow any money to be sent out without government approval. The only way to get approval is to own an FDI company or to get a no objection certificate aka NOC. NOC is for students paying for study abroad or for businesses make purchases.
