BHUTAN TRAVELLING: BHUTAN TRAVEL 2020

If you are travelling to Bhutan, you must come through a registered Bhutanese travel agency. Travelling in Bhutan is an experience like no other. Your Bhutan travels will be forever etched in your memory.

Travelling to Bhutan, Bhutan was closed to foreign travelers until 1974. In the first year when Bhutan opened up to tourism, just 287 tourists visited the country. In 2019 the amount had increased to 325,800 tourists visiting Bhutan.

Traveling to Bhutan is costly and not easily done unless you’re from a select few nations, including India. The distinctive Buddhist culture, unspoiled scenery, and fresh mountain air make it really worth it, however.

Everyone who travels to Bhutan needs a visa in advance, with the exception of passport holders from India, Bangladesh and the Maldives. Two national airlines currently operate their flights to Bhutan: Drukair and Bhutan Airlines.

Bhutan Visa 

From 2020 June, visitors from India, Bangladesh and Maldives require a online permit booked through local Bhutanese travel agency. However, if you are travelling to Bhutan from elsewhere, you will need one. Bhutan Wonderland will answer all your queries on visa and permit requirements and assist you to process them right from the beginning.

After you send us your passport copies, we will then process your visa with the Tourism Council of Bhutan. You will have to make full payments before that including a $40 visa fee. Within 72 working hours, your visa will be processed. You will have to produce your visa clearance letter at the point of entry and your visa will be stamped on your passport.

For regional tourists, you will also be required to obtain route permits to travel within Bhutan. Your permits can be processed online through the online permit system and Bhutan wonderland can help you with the entire process and answer all your queries.

Fantastic Bhutan Vacation Experience

Totally loved the short 3 days Thimphu, Paro experience. Highlight of it is the hiking to Tigers Nest. What spectacular experience it is. Drukson was so helpful from the start. Planning for it, communication throughout, arranging everything, etc. He’s an expert in foreign tourists arrangements. Also kudos to our guide Niwas, Driver Kinley for takings us around everywhere.
