There is no "Visa Regime" between India and Bhutan and hence Bhutanese nationals visiting India or Indian Nationals visiting Bhutan do not require any Visa to visit each other's country.

However, in exceptional circumstances, Embassy of India, Thimphu, Bhutan, grants visas to third country foreigners intending to visit India for tourist, transit and other purposes, in accordance with the rules and regulations governing Visa issues.

Non-resident foreigners must acquire Indian visa from his/her country or from the country of his/her residence. A non-resident foreigner applying for visa at Embassy of India, Thimphu shall be required to appear in person for obtaining visa and should explain why the individual did not obtain a visa from Embassy /Consulate of India in his own country. In these cases a minimum of four working days are required for processing visa.

An applicant should fill in the Visa Form duly signed along with the TELEX Form, and submit two recent passport size photographs, copy of Bhutan Visa, air tickets, etc. All entries in the Visa Application form must be filled-in correctly by the applicant.
