There is a tiny community of Nepalis in South Africa consisting mainly of immigrants and expatriates from Nepal.


Migration from Nepal to South Africa began in the 1980s'.[2] Currently there are about 150 Nepalis living in different cities of South Africa. Of them, 27 families belong to the medical profession. It is expected that the flow of Nepalis in South Africa will continue after the opening of the Embassy of Nepal in Pretoria.


In 2008, about 70 Non-Resident Nepalis from different parts of the country had gathered in East London to form the NRNA-NCC of South Africa.
