Bhutan Tour payment Method
The tourism council of Bhutan will issue the Bhutan visa to Bhutan Geo Visits only upon receiving 100% wire transfer tour payment in advance. Tourism Council of Bhutan will hold the tour payment in their account and will release the tour payment to the tour operator’s account after deducting the Royalty and after the guest leave Bhutan.
Interested guest wanting to travel to Bhutan must deposit the full tour payment in the USD Bank accounts by wire transfer after confirming the tour package.
The depositor has to email or fax the Bank telegraphic transfer receipt copy to Bhutan Geo Visits.
Bhutan Geo Visits upon receipt of the payment in the USD account maintained with Tourism Council of Bhutan will mail back the receipt copy.
To wire transfer the tour payment from any country outside Bhutan, please request your bank to remit the payment through Bhutan National Bank Ltd, correspondent Bank as follows:

The government set package tariff DO NOT include any TRAVEL INSURANCE. It is imperative that tourists have full comprehensive insurance cover to protect against unforeseen accidents and mishaps.
The insurance policy should adequately cover baggage and travel delays etc., helicopter evacuation, transportation and medical assistance in case of treks. Currently in Bhutan we do not have travel insurance so we advise you to do the travel insurance in your country.
There shall be no charge for the number of days of delay in departure of guests due to weather conditions, Druk Air/Bhutan Airlines problems or road blocks. Guests will be charged only on the actual expenses on accommodation, food, transport and any other services required.
