Bhutan Visa

Bhutan Visa

Indian, Bangladeshi, and Maldivian nationals can obtain a permit upon arrival at the port of entry by presenting a valid passport with a minimum of 6 months validity. Indian nationals may also use their Voter's Identity Card (VIC) as an alternative document. All other travelers, except those from India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives, must obtain a Bhutanese visa for purposes such as tourism and trekking.

E-Visa of BhutanTo process a Bhutanese visa, we require a clear, readable, color copy of your passport (containing your passport number and a clear picture) in either JPEG or PDF format. Please submit this copy at least 20 days before your planned entry into Bhutan. Your passport should remain valid for at least 6 months from your date of departure from Bhutan.

Visas are processed through an online system by your licensed Bhutanese tour operator directly or via a foreign travel agent. The visa will be processed by the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) once the full payment for your holiday, which includes a USD $40 visa fee, has been wire transferred and received in the TCB bank account. Visa clearance will typically be processed within 72 working hours after receipt of payment.

The Tourism Council of Bhutan will issue an e-visa clearance letter closer to your travel date, which will be sent to you via email or fax, or to your local travel agent. Travelers are required to present this e-visa clearance copy during check-in for Druk Air flights. If you enter Bhutan by surface through Phuentsholing or Samdrup Jonkhar, you must also provide this Visa Clearance letter at the Immigration counter. Upon arrival at your point of entry, your visa will be stamped into your passport.

Please note that Bhutan does not offer visa-only services. Guests must purchase a full-service tour package from a local tour operator, which includes accommodation, guided tours, transfers, and other necessary services.
