+ Where do I apply for Visa?
Your tour agent would apply for the Visa on your behalf. There is no embassy or consular service where you can apply for Visa by yourself.

+ When is the best period to visit Bhutan within this offer?
June would be the most popular time to visit Bhutan since you would be enjoying the last period of Spring and it would be the start of summer. We expect bigger booking for the first two weeks of June since it coincides with summer school holiday in South East Asia.
