Bhutan to charge Rs 1200 entry fee for Indian tourists



Ending decades of free entry to Indian tourists visiting Bhutan, the government in Thimphu has decided to levy a daily 1,200 Rupees ($17) fee for 'regional tourists' from India, the Maldives and Bangladesh.

The fee will be charged from July 2020.

The fee, called a Sustainable Development Fee, is meant to help the govt deal with burgeoning numbers in tourist traffic, which it is seeking to regulate through a new tourism policy.
