neinweiterlinks 01.02.2019, 12:23:15 A Bhutanese passport is a document which authorises and facilitates travel and other activities in Bhutan or by Bhutanese citizens.

In the Kingdom of Bumthang, which constitutes a part of modern day Bhutan, feudal passbooks or ‘dzeng’ were issued to court messengers in order to travel from kingdom to kingdom. Diplomacy and mediating were crucially important measures in pre-modern Bhutan chiefdoms.

Foreign travel passports are issued to citizens of Bhutan for international travel. New Bhutanese passports are issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


The passport contains text in English and Dzongkha (Tibetan script).
