The Kingdom of Bhutan is set to reopen to tourists with a major hike in the daily tourist tax.

Before the country closed its borders in March 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, travelers to Bhutan were required to pay a minimum daily fee of $200-250 - depending on the time of year. The fee included hotel, food, transportation and tour guide costs, as well as a mandatory $65 Site Development fee.

But in late June, Bhutan passed a tourism tax bill that eliminated the minimum daily fee in favor of raising the Country Development Fee from $65 to $200 per person per day.

Travel costs - for hotel and food - are not covered by the fee.

Bhutan has stated that the move is in line with the country's ongoing aim to attract 'quality' tourism.
