All visitors to Bhutan need a visa except for the visitors from India, Bangladesh and Maldives. Indian, Bangladeshis and Maldivian nationals can obtain a route permit 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). Your passport needs to have at least 6 months’ validity calculated from the date on which you head Bhutan.

Your Bhutan visa will be arranged by SNG Tours & Treks and all we need is, you will need to fill in a form for us with some personal information, and send us a scanned copy of the identity page of your passport. Then we will apply for your visa for you once your funds have arrived in Bhutan. Visas are usually authorized in the month before your trip, so long as funds have been received in full at that point.

A visa authority letter is issued after prepayment for your travel arrangements and the actual visa is stamped into your passport on arrival at Paro Airport or at one of the land border crossing (Phuentsholing or Samdrup Jongkhar or Gelephu). When entering Bhutan through a land border, two passport sized photos are required.

Please note that if you are not carrying a copy of this visa authorisation you will not be able to embark the plane to Paro.
