Travel Tips:

Travellers are advised to carry passports at all times with minimum 6 months validity. Indian Nationals travelling from Kathmandu to Delhi and vice versa can also travel with their original voters ID. Indian passengers travelling from Kathmandu to Paro and vice versa can only travel with a valid Passport, voters ID is not acceptable. Passengers with connecting flights or onward journey must have minimum 3 hours transit time. Information on transit flight must be passed onto the staff at the embarking station so that the information is passed onto us. Arrangements can be made provided we are pre-informed.

Though all major currencies are acceptable, carrying a minimum of USD 100 as a visa fee would be the safest bet.
