You can change money at the Nepal Rastra Bank, on the pink building (sign only in Nepali) on the left side of the road as you enter town from India. Open daily from 7 am to 6 pm. There is a money changer in the corner of the bus station.
The Nepalese immigration is open 7 am to 7 pm. You can get a visa at the Nepal border for US$ 30, which you usually have to pay in US dollars (exact change is expected). The closest Nepal consulate is in Calcutta. It is a fifteen-minute walk between the border and Raniganj, the first town in India.
It is possible to get through tickets from travel agents in Kathmandu or Darjeeling between Kathmandu and Darjeeling. Usually this trip is very expensive compared to doing it yourself and there is no reason it to do it as it is easy to arrange everything yourself. You also can take whatever bus you want, rather than being restricting to take what is arranged for you. Usually from Kakarbhitta they arrange a night bus to Kathmandu, and therefore and you can not take the day bus and see the views on the way. Often people are ripped off by these combined bus trips and are told they are going on a first-class luxury bus and then going on inferior services.
