Tourists can now register quickly and easily to a valid B-Mobile SIM card for one month. Just take your passport to a B-Mobile office. The SIM card costs 50Nu and has a credit of 50Nu. Ask them to enable 3G and data access while you're there, and test it before you go. There are no data plans per se, but the rate is affordable by international standards (0.0003Nu / KB). The only available SIM card size is the standard size, but some desks have sim cutters for the iPhone 4 and 5 (if you are worried, bring your own SIM cut). B-Mobile recharge cards can be purchased at most general stores.

The official tourist office of Bhutan is the Bhutan Tourism Board, for more information on the destination you can find on this site.
