Bhutan Travel Requirements

Before you travel to Bhutan, it is mandatory that you receive a visa clearance letter from the governing agency through a registered tour operator in Bhutan. Other than Indian, Maldives, and Bangladeshi nationals, any other tourist visiting Bhutan must apply for a tourist visa through a registered tour operator in Bhutan prior to their visit.

Nonetheless, applying for a tourist visa in Bhutan is fairly simple and cheap, as we will take care of the large part of administrative works on your behalf. Unlike other countries where you have to get an appointment at the country’s embassy, stand in a long queue for an interview and constantly check on your visa status, which comes with cost implications, we will do all this for you.

Most of the administrative work related to acquiring your visa clearance letter will be completed by us upon getting documents and information from your end. For us to process your tourist visa to Bhutan, you must submit the following documents:

  • A photocopy of your passport clearly showing your photograph,
  • Passport number, date of issue, date of expiry, and your date of birth.

(You will need to ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date you depart Bhutan at the end of your tour. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have your correct passport copy at the time of booking)

We are sending you E- Bhutan Visa Clearance letter. With this visa clearance letter, you will be able to travel to Bhutan, therefore, we encourage you to keep a few copies printed and also store soft copies on your handphone. Your actual tourist visa for Bhutan will be stamped on your passport upon showing the visa clearance letter on your arrival at the Paro International Airport.

It is very important to note that there are very few countries from where you can enter Bhutan via scheduled flight or by road. Depending upon your travel itinerary before entering Bhutan, we strongly encourage you to check with the embassies of these countries to see whether you need a visa to transit to Bhutan or to see if there are any services where you can get a visa on arrival.
