Passport, Visa & Entry Requirements

Information by Destination

Bhutan

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least six months after your arrival date.

U.S. passport holders must have a visa for entry into Bhutan, which must be obtained through a licensed tour operator such as Friendly Planet. Consult a Bhutan Embassy or the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

We will pre-arrange your travel visa, and the visa fee is included in your tour price. Please send the following to documents@friendlyplanet.com:

  1. A scanned color copy of the signature and picture pages of your passport
  2. A scanned color copy of a recent passport size photo in order to process your Bhutan visa

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, you are responsible for determining all entry requirements and obtaining any necessary visas. Consider using an expedited visa service.
