Planning to Visit Bhutan? Be Ready to Pay an Entry Fee Now

Surrounded by the mighty Himalayas, Bhutan is a small country sandwiched between India and Tibet. In recent times, this destination has been attracting a lot of tourists from across the world, making the tiny nation extremely overcrowded.

If you are planning to visit Bhutan, you might have to pay an entry fee now. As per reports, the Bhutan government is planning to put a cap on the number of tourist arrivals per year. It will also levy a minimum fee on tourists from India, Bangladesh and Maldives.

Currently, the country imposes a fee of $250 on international tourists, while the regional tourists do not have to pay any fee to enter Bhutan.

In a recent development, the Commission has suggested levying a nominal Sustainable Development Fee of Rs.500 on regional tourist. This includes those visiting from India, Bangladesh and Maldives.

This measure has been suggested to curb overcrowding in the country, consequently maintaining its exclusivity.
