A visa is required for traveling to Bhutan and it is processed and arranged by us. No foreign mission grants tourist visa.
Please fill up the Visa Application Form after downloading and forward it to us atleast three weeks prior to date of travel, for processing visa with the concerned authorities.
In addition, four copies of original passport size photographs should be mailed to us along with these information. Actual visa is stamped on arrival in Bhutan while visa is cleared in advance and a visa clearance number issued.
For all travelers, entering Bhutan by Druk Air, the visa clearance number is forwarded to concerned overseas Druk Air stations and without the Clearance Number; passengers are not allowed to board the flight. Visa Clearance Number is also required while issuing Druk Air tickets.
For all travelers, entering into the country by surface through Phuntsholing (the border town south of Bhutan), the visa is stamped on arrival and Clearance Number is forwarded to Foreign Ministry's office for references and record.
Visa fee is US$ 20.00 per person for 14 days visa, which can be further extended with additional fee of US$ 15.00. Visa fee is payable on arrival in cash.
For FITs/GITs travelling during festivals, visa particulars must be sent to us at least 6 weeks prior to your date of travel as festivals are peak time for tourists and all tour formalities are required to be completed well in advance.
