Now Indian Tourists have to Pay Rs 1200 Per Day as Entry Fee in Bhutan

Bhutan's goverment passed a legislation that makes it mandatory for visitors from India, Bangladesh and the Maldives to pay a fee of Rs 1200 per day.

The fee will be charged from July 2020 and the fee is called a ‘Sustainable Development Fee’ (SDF).

The decision comes in light of the increasing number of ‘regional tourists’ to the region and its effect on Bhutan’s ecology.

According to the Tourism Council of Bhutan’s Annual Report, India is the main source of visitors to the country. India’s share in visitors to Bhutan is more than 69 per cent with more than 19 lakh tourists visiting the country.
