About us

Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) was established on 11 October, 2003 with the purpose of uniting and binding the Nepali Diaspora under one umbrella. It is the only global organization that networks with the people of Nepali origin who reside in many countries outside South Asia. With the Nepali Diaspora’s belief of “Once a Nepali Remaining Always a Nepali”, their network represented by NRNA has developed itself into a formidable force that can represent Nepali interest globally. Keeping this in mind, the Government of Nepal has given legal status to Nepali Diaspora by promulgating Non-Resident Nepali Act 2064. For practical purposes Nepali citizens living outside South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) member countries or the People of Nepali Origin (PNO) holding foreign nationality other than SAARC nations are considered as NRNs. The National Coordination Councils (NCC) serve as the NRNA organization’s global network of its chapters, which are currently established in 60 countries around the world. NRN-Austria is the national coordination council of NRNA in Austria, which was established with the primary concern of promoting the common interests of its members in Austria and Nepal.  NRN Austria serves as an umbrella organization of all Nepalese in Austria.
