Guwahati, Sept. 23 -- After shutting its doors to international tourists for two and a half years owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bhutan re-opened its borders on Friday.
The reopening has come with a revised tourism levy, called the Sustainable Development Fee.
Indians were not charged anything before the pandemic began, but as per the new rules, they now have to pay a sum of Rs1200.
However, the revised fee for Indian tourists was never implemented.
The Himalayan Kingdom of fewer than 800,000 people has reported a little over 61,000 infections and only 21 deaths. However, its economy has suffered in the last two years, causing a spike in poverty.
