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' (Dzongkha: ཛེང) 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.
