Bhutan Is Going To Charge Tourists Rs. 1200 Per Day From July

Bhutan visa charge

Bhutan is a real beauty. It is well-known for its mesmerizing beauty and stunning landscapes. This place has been an idyllic destination for Indian travellers. Most importantly, you were not charged any fee to enter the city but there’s bad news for all the travel lovers. If you are an Indian tourist and were planning to visit Bhutan for a long time then you may need to drop or postpone your plans as now you will be charged Rs. 1,200 per day.

If you want to avoid paying Rs. 1,200, then you may need to visit there before July.

Why this fees?

Bhutan Visa Fees

Bhutanese Government has launched a new scheme, under that they will be charging this amount as Sustainable Development Fee (SDF) from all the Indian tourists. They have decided to end the provision of free entry and have set the fee to enter Bhutan. This applies to all Indian Passport holders from July 2020. Other countries that are included in the scheme are Maldives and Bangladesh.

Who are exempted from this fee?

This fee does not apply to children between the age of 6 and 12 years.

Do you know how much now Indian tourists will have to pay?

Bhutan Visa for Indian

The SDF for Indian tourists is quite less compared to the citizen of other countries who need to pay USD 65 i.e. Rs. 4,631 along with a compulsory flat cover charge of USD 250 i.e. Rs. 17,811 per day. The decision to introduce such a fee was passed by the country’s National Assembly as the Tourism Levy and Exemption Bill of Bhutan, 2020.

Earlier, Indians do not require any visa to visit Bhutan and only two documents were needed

Bhutan Visa for Indian

Earlier, Indian tourists visiting Bhutan were only required to carry any of the two valid travel documents necessary and did not have to pay any entry fee. The documents were an Indian passport with a minimum of 6 months validity and Voter ID Card issued by the Election Commission of India. Indian nationals did not require a visa to visit Bhutan.

Indians travelling to Bhutan by road were only required to obtain a permit based on travel documents from the Immigration Office of the Royal Government of Bhutan at Phuentsholing. Those who travel by air were required to carry their travel documents at the entry permit and show them at the Paro International Airport.

You need to shell more now if you want to visit Bhutan

No More Visa free travel to Bhutan

But now, if you are planning to enter Bhutan and enjoy there as Virushka did, you will have to shell out more now than you had to earlier because of the implementation of the new scheme.

Goan Government To Create Special Zones To Enjoy Liquor Drinking For Travellers

Our love for Goa will never end. Goa is one of the best destinations to spend quality time with your loved ones. How about sipping a bottle of beer and lying on the clear sandy beach? Though it was not possible a few times back as some law was passed by the government related to prohibiting drinking on the beaches of Goa. But, now you don’t need to worry as there’s good news for all of you, especially for those who were disheartened after hearing the news about the drinking ban in Goa.

They have the reason to cheer up. The government in Goa has recently announced to create some special zones for drinking alcohol on prominent beaches where travellers and holidaymakers can enjoy their drinks.

Goan Government To Create Special Zones To Enjoy Liquor Drinking For Travellers

Tourism Minister, Manohar Ajgaonkar has made the official news just a few days at a press conference in Panaji. But he also mentioned that if anyone is caught drinking alcohol outside these special zones, they would also be levied fined Rs. 5,000. He further said when implementing the bank on drinking, they also wished to create a special zone for picnics.

The minister further said, “A lot of local groups want to have picnics along the beach and we have decided to keep spots along the beachside, one or two at each beach where those who want to go can go and drink – a picnic zone.”

To check if the policy is being implemented or not, these beaches will also have head constables, wardens, and supervisors who will have the power to fine the people drinking outside these special zones.

In January 2019, the Goan government had passed a law wherein drinking of alcohol in public places was banned in Goa. It also assured strict action against drinking alcohol on the beaches and also at other popular tourist hotspots. As per records, every year more than eight million tourists visit Goa from across the Globe.

5 Places In India Where Indians Are Not Allowed To Visit

You will be shocked to know that there are some places in India where we Indians can’t visit. They welcome only foreigners. I mean it’s hard to believe for us that even after gaining independence we can’t visit some of the places. But that’s unfair. Do you know about those places which do not entertain Indians?

We have compiled the list of such places where Indians entry is banned.

1. Free Kasol Cafe, Kasol

Free Kasol Cafe

Free Kasol Cafe is situated in Himachal’s Kasol village in Kullu district. It is one of the popular places that do not allow Indians to enter. It is believed that the manager of the cafe denied giving the services to the Indians whereas he has nicely welcomed the guests from Israel. Later the manager of the restaurant explained that he was in a bad mood at that time which is not a proper reason to turn down away any customer like this.

Well, you will be shocked to know this hotel started as a joint venture with Nippon Infrastructure Company to only serve their Japanese client. But when people started knowing about this thing that the hotel doesn’t allow Indians, it was soon shut down by the law on charges of racial discrimination in 2014.

3. ‘Foreigner’s only’ beaches in Pondicherry

Pondicherry is best known for the cherished destination for foreigners who come to India. Its breezy beaches and French boulevards offer a wonderful cultural appeal. However, Pondicherry has many beaches that are exclusively meant for foreign tourists only and not for Indians which is bad news.

Goa is an amazing holiday destination for everyone. From old age individuals to the young generation, everyone loves to visit here. But this thing might upset you, as there are certain beaches in Goa where only foreigners are allowed. Anjuna beach is one of the perfect examples of this which doesn’t allow any Indian. However, this is not a legal restriction, but they just want to save and protect the foreigner women in swim bodysuits from the lusty gaze of Indians.

5. Broadlands Lodge Chennai

Do you know this hotel in Chennai has put the signboard at the entrance that says “Welcome, Namaste, pray to stay at this worthy lodge.” But this warm welcome is only for those who are Non-Indians or an Indian in possession of a foreign passport. They prefer foreigners and not Indians because they feel that Indians are very demanding as regards the room service and make too much noise which disturbs other hotel members.

So, these were the places where Indians are completely banned. However, we are surprised to know this thing but we can’t help. But no need to worry, we still have so many places to roam around where we can go and enjoy.
