Note: As such, it will be raising the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF) of USD:65 per person per night for tourists to USD:200, which will go towards activities that promote carbon-neutral tourism and build a more sustainable tourism sector. This includes offsetting the carbon footprint of tourists and upskilling workers in the sector. Indian tourists will pay a previously stipulated fee, which will be revised at a later date. The rate refers to the minimum sum paid by all tourists for an all-inclusive package tour to Bhutan.
The fee changes came into effect on 20 June 2022. You can also visit the Tourism Department’s official website:
