Bhutan prioritizes high-value, low-impact tourism, and visitors are expected to adhere to specific guidelines. It is essential to verify the current visa requirements and regulations by reaching out to the Royal Bhutanese Embassy or checking the official website of the Tourism Council of Bhutan before planning a trip to Bhutan.
