Bhutan Travel Information

Travel to Bhutan

  • You need a visa to visit Bhutan. Entry and exit conditions can change at short notice. You should contact the nearest embassy or consulate of Bhutan for the latest details.
  • Bhutan has introduced a number of new entry requirements including a ‘Sustainable Development Fee’. See the Tourism Council of Bhutan for more information.
  • You’re no longer required to quarantine on arrival, and all COVID-19 vaccination requirements have been lifted. Individuals aged 12 and over may be subject to random RT-PCR testing on arrival.
  • Monitor media and follow the advice of local authorities regarding COVID-19 mitigations.
  • Flights to and from Paro Airport only occur in daylight hours and depend on good weather conditions. Contact your airline or tour operator to find out if your travel has been disrupted.

Travel Insurance:

Get comprehensive travel insurance before you leave.  Your policy needs to cover all overseas medical costs, including medical evacuation. The Bhutan Government or the Tour Operator won’t pay for these costs.

Passport Validity

Bhutan won’t let you enter unless your passport is valid for 6 months after you plan to leave that country. This can apply even if you’re just transiting or stopping over.

So, make sure that your passport is valid for more than 6 months.
