To note, the $17 SDF levied on the Indians by the Bhutan Government is much less when compared with the $65 levied by the Government of Bhutan on the tourists arriving from other foreign countries.

Also, the government has said that no SDF will be charged from the tourists visiting the eastern parts of the nation. This is because tourists often visit the western parts of Bhutan.
