Passport and Visa Information

Almost everyone requires a visa to enter Bhutan. You must have a full passport at least six months’ validity with sufficient blank visa pages at the point of arrival in Bhutan. Some countries also require you to have at least 6 months validity on your passport from the return date of travel - check with the relevant embassy for current requirements, as these are subject to change. After receiving your money we will confirm your booking to you and then we can process your visa around one month before your scheduled trip; all we need from you at this stage is to complete the Tour Booking Form with a scanned copy of the identity page of your valid passport – view the sample here. No passport size photographs will be required. After completing the form, return it to us by email or by fax on +975 2 333083. The form can be found on the left hand side on our website in WORD & PDF formats.

Soon after receiving your full tour payment, we will apply for your visa and a copy of your visa clearance letter/number from the Department of Immigration, Ministry of Home & Cultural Affairs, Royal Government of Bhutan, Thimphu will be emailed to you, the copy of which must be carried with you to hand in at the Check-in Counters. The actual visa is stamped on arrival in Bhutan.

Note that the visa will NOT be issued by the government without your full tour payment in advance.
