Tourist’s VISA Application
Other than Indian, Bangladeshis and Maldivian nationals, all visitors to Bhutan require a visa. All VISAs are only issued to tourists booked via a local licensed tour operator like Legendary Bhutan. Visa clearance from Thimphu must be obtained before coming to Bhutan which will take at least 10 working days to process.
After receiving the full tour payment and clear passport copy of each guest, we will proceed with the VISA application with Royal Government of Bhutan (Department of Immigration - Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs). Once we obtain the approved VISAs, we will email a copy to our guests, which the guests have to print it out and present it at the Paro’s airport, Phuentsholing’s or Samdrup Jongkhar’s immigration checkpoint upon arrival.
VISA fee is USD40.00 per person with effective from 1 January 2013 and this fee will be on top of the tour package price quoted.
