Traveling to Bhutan requires patience and advance planning. You’ll need your passport, a travel guide, a photo, itinerary, lodging, and payment method to get a visa to travel to Bhutan. The Bhutanese policy of “High Value, Low Impact Tourism” was created to ensure that the smaller country is not overrun by mass tourism or changed dramatically by the results of tourism.

If you are from India, the Maldives, or Bangladesh, you will not need an e-Visa. Simply show your passport or another valid form of ID to enter Bhutan for a limited period of time.
