    Bhutan Visa Guidelines

    • All other tourists must obtain a visa clearance prior to traveling to Bhutan.  Visas are processed through an online system by your licensed Bhutanese tour operator directly or through a foreign travel agent.   
    • You are required to send the photo page of your passport to your tour operator who will then apply for your visa.  The visa will be processed by the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) once the full payment of your holiday (including a USD $40 visa fee) has been wire transferred and received in the TCB bank account.  Once received, the visa clearance will be processed within 72 working hours. 

    Bhutan Visa Process

    You have to apply for a Bhutan visa through a registered tour operator, who will submit the visa application on your behalf at the Tourism Council of Bhutan. The Bhutan visa application process is as follows:

    • Approach a registered tour operator to book your trip. The Bhutan Tourism Council has a list of registered tour operators on its website. There are many of them, so do your scouting and find one that appears most adequate to you. There can also be a tour agency in your country which has tied to a Bhutanese company and will help you with the application process.
    • Pay the tour and send the tour operators the required documents and information.
    • Colored scan of your passport. Make sure the passport will be valid for at least another six months starting from the day you enter Bhutan.
    • Document proving your occupation. If you are a student, you should submit your student ID as well, because you will get a discount. Children can also get discounts.
    • Your contact information and address.
    • The tour operators will submit the visa application on your behalf to the Bhutan Tourism Council.
    • The Bhutan Tourism Council reviews your application and issues a Visa Clearance Letter. You have to print this letter and bring it with you to the airport.
    • Travel to Bhutan and show the visa clearance letter to the immigration officers at the airport. After reviewing it, they will stamp the actual visa on your passport.
