Regional visitors do not have to pay the international tourist tariff to visit Bhutan. Goods and travel services are consumed on their own discretion.Regional tourist are Indian, Bangladesh and Maldivian national. So Indians, Bangladeshis and Maldivian nationals can obtain a visa at the port of entry on producing a valid passport with a minimum of 6 month validity (Indian nationals may also use their Voters Identity Card (VIC)

However our company has seen that it was difficult to provide quality services and security in Bhutan, when they travel on their own. We also found out that our regional tourist were not able to experience and explore our unique culture, age-old customs and traditions besides the attractions and offerings that Bhutan has.

Our Labor Minister Ngeema Sangay Tshempo said tourists are encouraged to hire guides and come through local tour agents. “We treat tourists as our guests and they should not be left on their own,” he said, adding that the government encourages guided tourists.

Therefore, Authentic Bhutan Tours would like to take opportunity in catering to the various needs of the regional visitors. We specialized in Regional Tourist with competitive price that will make our regional tourist to travel with us. We have every necessary provisions and knowledge to ensure and look after the visitors with great care and guidance. The company would provide all the necessities with trust and taste.
