Indian, Bangladeshis and Maldivian nationals can obtain a visa at the port of entry on producing a valid passport with a minimum of 6 month validity (Indian nationals may also use their Voters Identity Card (VIC)).
Visa will be issued on arrival from the entry points. Family traveling with kids below the age of 17, without valid passport/VIC will be allowed to enter Bhutan with a Birth Certificate or valid school ID (both should be presented in case of school going kid). Indian wishing to enter Bhutan from third country should produce valid Indian Passport or Voter ID Card. Alone with the passport or VIC, two recent passport size photograph for each guest will also be required.
If you plan to visit places (towards East and South – Punukha, Wangdue, Bumthang, etc) beyond Thimphu Paro, you will be required to apply for a separate route permit from the Department of Immigration (DOI). To apply for the permit you will need to submit a scanned copy of either a passport or VIC to us in advance which we will process from the DOI.
