Under the new policy, 15000 Bangladeshi tourists can travel Bhutan annually with the reduced fees of USD 15.

Previously, in June 2022, Bhutan raised the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF) from 65 US dollar to 200 US dollars per person per night, which got revised to 100 US dollars per person per night from June 2023.
