Customs & Airport
Green Channel: Passengers arriving at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) without any dutiable goods can proceed through the Green Channel for quick clearance without a baggage check. If you are carrying dutiable articles, you have to pass through the Red Channel for detailed customs clearance.
Import: Apart from used personal belongings, visitors are allowed to bring to Nepal free of duty cigarettes (200) or cigars (50), distilled liquor (one 1.15 liter bottle), and film (15 rolls). You can also bring in the following articles free of duty on condition that you take them out with you when you leave: binoculars, movie or video camera, still camera, laptop computer, and portable music system.
Export: It is illegal to export objects over 100 years old (sacred images, paintings, manuscripts) that are valued for culture and religious reasons.

what a wonderful information for both nepali and bideshi
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone
An hour to like someone
And a day to love someone 
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone

thx for niice information
याद आयो भने आँखा बन्द नगर्नू,

हामी सधैँ सँगै हुनुपर्छ भन्ने केही छैन,
तर मित्रताको ढोका भने कहिले बन्द नगर्नू ।
