I'm a freelance self employed illustrator/graphic designer and my boyfriend is self employed musician and film editor, I've heard and seen on this that our indian tourist visas (going for 3 weeks) would most likely get rejected unless we word it in a particular way. Has anyone got any ideas what we should put?
Also I'm going to Nepal to do EBC and travel for 2 weeks and Japan for 2 weeks and was told I don't need visas for these countries, , is this true? obviously I will look into this but just thought I'd ask whilst I was on here.
Thanks for any help, much appreciated :)

Burger-flipper, McDonald`s. That will work.

Nepal you will buy on entry, price depends on nationality which you haven`t listed. Unless you`re Indian.
Japan? Dunno, where ya from? US citizens don`t need one, but must have an onward ticket.

3Better lying about employment than writing what you actually do. And they have better things to do than check an employment history. Like drinking chai.
I`m fortunate, I write retired and I just get waved through on my 10-year visa.
FYI, no one (except perhaps your airline) will ask about an onward ticket from India. And then only Air India, Jet or Kingfisher (if the Emirates merger doesn`t go thru, no bother with that, they`ll be bust).

5Would they not check?
Do you actually think they are going to check if you work at a burger joint? For every Visa app they get? Pirates right ... they'd rather drink chai. Lie ... 'retired' 'cook' 'chef' 'anything but journalist / photographer'.
Japan will just let you in, Nepal makes you buy a Visa at the airport.

As said, a visa is needed for Nepal.
15 days is US$25 and 30 days is $40. It's cheaper in $ than £. More info on the Dept of Immigration website including a download for the visa application form.
2 weeks in Nepal is not enough time to trek to EBC. Standard itineraries take 14 days and some time is needed to organise it...

8Thanks everyone for all the advise, it's really appreciated. Seems I've become a burger flipper :)
Hey Scoodly, sorry I didn't explain it well in my first post, I'm doing EBC in 16 days then I have another 2 weeks after that to travel. Hopefully that will be enough time to see some wonders of Nepal.
