*** Important information for Nepalese candidates ***

Please take little more money than what the exchange rate says. While the exchange rate was around 97 Rs/$, they charged us at 100 Rs/$. (Thankfully I had just enough -- after emptying my pockets).

Also please see if your photo is valid and good. Lot of people were sent back to get new photographs. 
Don't wear glasses (even though US website says its fine). Don't have any part of your hair cut from photo (for peole with long/curly/wavy hairs).

All the best to everyone.....
