Hi, Indian nationals intending to visit Bhutan are required to carry any of the two valid 'Travel Documents' (a) Valid Indian Passport having validity of minimum 6 months; and/or (b) Voter Identity Card, issued by the Election Commission of India. No Visa is required to visit Bhutan. Indians coming to Bhutan by road are required to obtain an 'Entry Permit' on the basis of valid Travel Document from the Immigration Office of Royal Government of Bhutan at Phuentsholing, located on the Indo-Bhutan border opposite Jaigaon, West Bengal. Similarly, Indians coming by air must posses any one of the above mentioned Travel Document and get the Entry Permit at the Paro International Airport. The 'entry permit' allows an Indian tourist to visit Thimphu and Paro only. However, any tourist going beyond Thimphu and Paro need to acquire a 'special area permit' from the RGoB Immigration Office at Thimphu on any working days (Monday to Friday) Climate: During winter (November to March) the minimum temperature drops to minus 10 in the Thimphu valley. Summers (April-June) are very pleasant. One should avoid traveling during the rainy season (July-September) Places to visit: Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Wangdiphodrang, Bumthang. Special permits are however required to visit towns other from Thimphu and Paro.
There is no visa required for Bhutan, however if you are travelling by air you need to have a passport and if you are entering into Bhutan by road you need to either have a voter id card or passport and 2 passport size to get a permit from the immigration office.
No Indian tourists do not need Visa for visiting Bhutan. You need to go through the immigration at Jaigaon-Phuentsholling border. There are other border crossings too, but this one is the easiest to reach if you are visiting from anywhere which is towards the west of West Bengal. At the border you need to fill in a form with details about your permanent address in India. Your Aadhar Card or Voter Id Card are valid as proof of identity. You must carry 4 passport size photos and details of your stay in Thimphu/ Paro. You can make an unpaid booking in Thimphu/Paro on Booking.com for this proof. The procedure takes about half an hour on a usual day. The immigration office is closed on weekends and public holidays, so ensure that you reach the border on a weekday. There are hotels on each side of the border, and you can visit the Bhutan side for a few hours without going through immigration as well.
No visa required for Bhutan.
You must borrow your voter card or passport with you along with your passport photo so that the Bhutanese authority can prepare visa for Thimphu and Paro(without taking any charges).
