Bhutan reopens to tourists after 2 years. See how much Indians will have to pay as levy

The Himalayan country has, however, decided to slights tweak its 'High Value, Low Volume' toursim policy to make up for the economic losses it suffered in the past two years. 

Bhutan has reopened to tourists after insulating itself from the outside world for over 2 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Himalayan country has, however, decided to slightly tweak its 'High Value, Low Volume' tourism policy to make up for the economic losses it suffered in the past two years.

Before Covid, Bhutan required tourists to book their travel through registered tour operators and had to spend a minimum amount, including $65 tourism tax, daily during their stay.

While the requirement of a package tour is no longer necessary, tourists have to pay $200 daily as tourism tax in addition to hotel and food charges.

Visitors from India were not required to pay a tourism tax before Covid-19 but now Indian travellers will be required to pay a daily levy of Rs 1200.

The Bhutan govt has said that the Sustainable Development Fee will ensure that their economy recovers from the Covid-19 setback and that they are also able to make tourism sustainable.

Bhutan is one of the very few carbon-neutral countries in the world.
