How to get Bhutan Visa and Book Bhutan Tours?

Bhutan has its own unique tourism policy where everyone cannot travel except lucky travelers. The purpose of implementing the Bhutanese Tourism policy of ‘high value, low volume’ is to maximize the national tourism revenue and minimize the impact on culture and environment which lead to a perfect example of a happy nation in the world. 

All the international tourists are mandatory to obtain a Bhutanese visa in advance of your trip except its neighboring nations such as India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives. Bhutan’s neighboring countries can get visas on arrival and the cost of the tour is also cheaper as compared with other tourists. Although Bhutan is not easily undertaken and expensive for international tourists, unspoiled scenery, unique culture, and the carbon-free nation make it very worthwhile.  Independent travelers or backpackers are not encouraged by the Government of Druk. Tourists must travel to Bhutan in a guided tour organized by tour agencies.

Getting a Bhutanese Visa

All the travelers need Visa to Bhutan in advance which is mandatory except for citizens of neighboring nations from Bangladesh, Maldives, and India. Tourists from these countries are known as a regional tourist who only needs to pay a sustainable development fee of USD 17 per day with free Entry Permit on arrival. The government of Bhutan is trying to increase the number of Tourists in 11 specific districts in eastern Bhutan from the Trongsa to Trashigang by letting tourists without any official restrictions.

The rest of the international tourists must need to pay USD 65 for a sustainable development fee which is included in the minimum daily packages of USD 250.
