All tourists must obtain a visa clearance prior to your travel 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 scan copy of your passport where all the details are mentioned 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 one to two weeks.
At your point of entry you will be required to show your visa clearance letter, the visa will then be stamped into your passport.
One needs to have a passport which has a validity of atleast 6 months beyond your expected date of departure from Bhutan.
