Bhutan to reopen for foreign tourists


As for now, the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) decided that tourists will be again welcomed into the Buddhist state starting September 23. Nevertheless, each visitor will be asked to pay a Sustainable Development Fee of $250 per day in the high season, and $200 in the low season in order to offset carbon impact. However, the sustainable development fee will also apply for Indian tourists, who so far could enter the country without any costs. “Indian tourists will pay a previously stipulated fee, which will be revised at a later date,” quotes a recent statement from the Tourism Council of Bhutan. Tourism in Bhutan is a major contributor to the country’s economy and employs more than 50.000 people.
