It is mandatory for all tourists to obtain a Bhutan e visa clearance before travelling to Bhutan.The Regional Tourists( Indian, Bangladeshi, and Maldivians) require e -permits to enter Bhutan. However, International Tourists require e-visas. Both e-Visas and e-permits are issued through certified tour operators like Bhutan Best Inbound Tour.
In order to get your e visa approved to Bhutan the only document we required is a copy of your valid passport (validity should be for more than six months from the day you exit Bhutan) And the minimum daily package as set by Tourism council of Bhutan has to be met.
