A second gate in Phuentsholing
A second entry gate from Jaigao to Phuentsholing has been inaugurated. The border gate will ease the pressure at the old gate.
While the concrete gate is at Jaigaon side, a metal gate has been built adjacent to the building that houses the office of the police, forest, immigration, and Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) on Phuentsholing side.
Light vehicles and two-wheelers will have to use this gate instead of the old one to enter into Phuentsholing from Jaigaon but entering Jaigao from Phuentsholing from this gate is not permitted. Pedestrians won’t be permitted to use the new gate.
