What happens if you are not carrying either of the above mentioned documents? Well Indians going to Bhutan can also visit the Indian Consulate office and apply for an Identification Slip with proper address proof (Basically an Aadhar card can suffice).

When you have this entry permit – you are only allowed to visit the two cities of Paro and Thimphu – however if you are looking to explore Bhutan a bit further then you must apply for a ‘Special Area Permit’ again issued by Royal Government of Bhutan Immigration Office – located at Thimphu.

Bhutan is a great place to visit for Indians – especially if you are on a family holiday looking for some quiet time to be spent with your family with some amazing Himalayan views and clean air. Typically one must avoid the months during July to September – but the summers are definitely pleasant!
