Visa and flight ticket

All visitors require a visa before travelling to Bhutan (except those from India, Bangladesh and the Maldives, for whom the relevant processes and fees are outlined separately below).

As part of the visa application process, you will be required to pay the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF) of US$100 per day (per adult; concessionary rates apply for children).

A non-refundable, one-off visa application fee of US$40 is also payable.

We will help in applying for visa once your travel date and payment is confirmed. To apply for visa, you need to provide us with the required information for each person travelling.

To apply for a visa online, we need following details:

  • A digital copy of a valid passport with more than 6 months validity.

  • A recent digital passport photo

  • Arrival and departure dates 

  • Valid travel insurance for the duration of your travel from any insurance company of your choice.

  • Payment details for your tours with us.

There are a few simple steps to follow up when we apply for your visa:

  • Sign our Pledge of Friendship, thus committing to protecting, preserving and positively contributing to our kingdom.

  • Add your travel information.

  • You need to pay for your visa application and the SDF fee for your planned stay in Bhutan.

Once we submit your application, it will be reviewed within five working days by the Department of Immigration.

Once we get your visa approved, we will process your flight ticket for Bhutan sector, as there is only two commercial flight ferrying passenger to Bhutan from Singapore, Thailand, Nepal and different cities of India. Booking a flight ticket for Bhutan sector will be cheaper to purchase Bhutan than buying from outside ticketing agent.


Visitors from India, Bangladesh and Maldives require a permit or if you’re travelling with a tour operator or staying at a hotel, we can apply on your behalf. No fees are payable in advance. 

You can also apply at your point of entry, but please be aware that there may be a long wait depending on the number of applicants at the time. If you are applying for a permit on arrival, you will need a passport-size photograph. You must also have insurance for the duration of your visit, which you can prearrange or purchase upon arrival. Your SDF is payable when applying for your permit, either online or in person. 

Visitors from Bangladesh and the Maldives require a visa, but the process is the same as the one outlined above for Indian nationals: you may apply and pay the relevant SDF and prearrange your travel insurance before travelling, or you can do this in person upon arrival. 

We recommend arranging your permit or visa beforehand with us for hassle free trip.
