The only way you can transfer your tour money to Bhutan is to wire transferred through a bank. No credit cards, visa cards or debit cards are accepted.

Your tour money wired to Bhutan will be deposited into Tourism Council of Bhutan’s bank account maintained with Bhutan National Bank; not directly to your tour operator’s personal bank account.

However remind your bank at the time of wiring your tour money to reflect your Tour operators name and its bank account number as the ultimate beneficiary, so that once your money gets deposited into Tourism Council of Bhutan’s account, they will figure out on behalf of which tour operators the money has been deposited.

Your tour money to Bhutan have to wire transfer prior to your arrival in Bhutan and failing to do so will result in Tourism Council of Bhutan not issuing your visa.
