Travel Requirements

It is mandatory for all tourists (other than Indian, Bangladeshi & Maldivian nationalities) to obtain a Bhutan visa clearance before travelling to Bhutan. The Bhutan visa has to be processed via a government approved travel agency such as Bhutan Best Inbound Tour.

To obtain the visa, you need to tell us how long you will be staying in Bhutan and from where you will fly. We will then book your flights and hotels accordingly. After this, you must send us a scanned copy of your passport. As soon as we receive these, we will send you the tour invoice so that you can make payments following which we will forward the same to the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) and Department of Immigration (DOI). These agencies will process the visa online.

Next we will send you the visa confirmation code. You must carry a printed copy of the visa confirmation code and your flight tickets as these needs to be produced at the check-in counter at Paro International Airport.

Your actual Bhutan visa will be stamped on your passport upon your arrival.

Visa/Permits for Indian, Bangladeshi & Maldivian nationalities can be obtained at the Immigration Check Points, at the port of entry, upon production of a valid Passport (Indian Nationals can also use their Voter Identity Card).
