Tourism Policy of Bhutan

Tourism Policy of Bhutan

Bhutan’s tourism sector is regarded as one of the most exclusive travel destinations in the world. Bhutan enjoys a reputation for authenticity, remoteness and a well-protected cultural heritage and natural environment.

The tourism industry in Bhutan is founded on the principle of sustainability, meaning that tourism must be environmentally and ecologically friendly, socially and culturally acceptable and economically viable. The Royal Government of Bhutan recognizes that tourism is a world-wide phenomenon and an important means of achieving socioeconomic development particularly for a developing country like Bhutan. It believes that tourism, in affording the opportunity to travel, can help to promote a deeper understanding among people and to strengthen ties of friendship based on a deeper appreciation and respect for different cultures and lifestyles.

Towards achieving this objective, the Royal Government, has adopted a very cautious approach to growth and development of the tourism industry in Bhutan. Its tremendous potential as a truly indigenous industry and the clear comparative advantages Bhutan enjoys, are compelling reasons to promote Bhutan as a high-end tourist destination in a manner which accords with the tenets of Gross National Happiness.

In keeping with the above policy, tourists are required to apply for visa through a licensed local tour operator and buy a minimum daily package to visit Bhutan. This minimum daily package is an all-inclusive tariff strictly regulated by the government. It covers all food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), transportation with driver and certified guide for the entire duration of your trip, accommodation in a 3-star hotel approved by the Tourism Council of Bhutan. For further information on tariffs and discounts, visit and for visa requirement.
