Bhutan Entry Permits for Indian citizens May I chip in my two cents on the issue? 1. Indian citizens do not require any Passport or/and Visa to travel to Bhutan. 2. They need Entry Permit to enter Bhutan and this Entry Permits enables them to visit Thimphu and Paro only. 3. For travelling further, they need Restricted Area Permit in addition to Entry Permit. 4. For travelers flying in, get their Entry Permit at Paro Airport. 5. For travelers crossing land border can get their Entry Permit issed either from Bhutan Consulates (including Kolkata Deputy High Commission of Royal Govt. of Bhutan) or from the Immigration Office at Phuentsolling. 6. The document needed for getting the Permit is any Govt. ID with Photograph (most commonly, it is Voter ID) and a copy of Passport Sized Photograph. 7. Please note that even if you possess Passport, still you will need Entry Permit. Since there is no Visa requirement for Indian citizens visiting Bhutan, the Passport would act as ID proof only. 8. I believe people who are not having Voter ID or Passport, only they are required to report to Indian Embassy for getting their identity (citizenship) authenticated. But surely, those holding Voter ID and/or Passport do not need to visit Indian Embassy. They can get their Entry Permit directly from the Bhutan Consulate or from Immigration Office, as the case may be. 9. For Restricted Area Permit, Indian travelers are required to report to the Immigration Office at Thimphu only. Similarly, if someone likes to extend their Permit validity date, he/she would require to report same office. I have listed all the relevant points applicable to Indian travelers only. The feedback is based on my personal experience only based on my Bhutan trip about an year and half back. Kindly re validate the data with the latest developments, if any. I had not taken my own vehicle and as such I am not aware of vehicle Permit procedure.
