Every traveller needs to have a valid visa for entering Bhutan. White Umbrella will take care for the visa application in conjunction with your booking. The visa has to be submitted and issued in advance. On-site applications at the airport or at the border are not possible. If you enter Bhutan by flight the visa is required already for boarding.

What do I need to do for the visa application?

1. Complete the visa application form (click here).
2. Send a copy of your passport (good quality, both sides) by e-mail at least four weeks prior to the tour.

White Umbrella will apply for your visa. After processing we will forward the visa approval document to you. On arrival you show your passport and the visa approval document, the final visa will be stamped in your passport on the spot.

Important: It is necessary to have a passport that is valid for at least six more months after entering Bhutan.

Please note: There is no foreign agency abroad that issues Bhutan tourist visas. Travellers can not apply for a visa themselves, they have to submit the application through an licenced tour operator.
