Tibet Travel Permit

- We offer the Most Comprehensive Guide on Tibet Permit Application

The law of People’s Republic of China says that foreigners must apply for Tibet Travel Permit before travelling to Tibet. Visiting some closed areas like Mt. Kailashi, or Mt. Everest requires additional permits, which need to be approved by several Government departments. We can provide all-in-one services. Travelers just give us their travel plan and passport copies, and relax while we take care of the whole complicated application procedures.  Since 2001, we have successfully obtained Tibet Travel Permit for thousands of travelers, who also enjoyed our great tour services. We  admit that there have been difficulties, but we are always trying our best to help travelers get the permits, no matter they come in group or private tours. We offer the following services:

  • Tibet Travel permit application for travelers entering Tibet from mainland China
  • Special Chinese group visa application for travelers entering Tibet from Nepal

    CHINESE VISA

    I have arranged a trip with Tony Yin, Beijing to Kathmandu and now have to get my Chinese visa.  I need a letter of Confirmation with the trip details but Tony says I have to do that myself because he is too busy.  I cannot get the visa without this letter and to alter the one he sent would be making a false claim to me and might get me into trouble and have the visa rejected. I don't have much time as my flights from the UK are booked for 29 Aug and back from Kathmandu on 27

    Obtaining travel permit with M visa

    Hi, I currently have an unexpired M visa that allows me multiple entries into China, so I plan to visit Tibet. However, I am no longer working at the company that wrote the invitation letter in order for me to obtain the M visa. My visa is still valid according to the US consulate. Can I use the original company invitation letter that brought me into China as the certificate to prove my purpose in China?

    Aug 18, 2014
    Answered by Tibettravel.Org
    Hi Elzee It is not a big problem if you can not offer a company invitation letter. the local government just wants to know you go to Tibet for travelling purpose, this Tibet Vista can help you to deal with that and get Tibet travel permit without problem.

    Answered by Tibettravel.Org
    I am sorry, your request the tour too urgent and there is not enough time to apply for Tibet Permit. Normally, a permit application for mount Kailash tour takes about 3 to 4 weeks. In addition, the government will be off for a week Shoton festival holiday at the end of August which makes the application impossible. Please think about to postpone the tour to the end of September, that is my advice.

    Planning a trip to Kailash / Manasorovar - Need information

    Hi,



    I am an US citizen aged 41 years and My dad is an Australian citizen aged 78 years. My dad is in very good health and pretty active and can produce a medical certificate regarding his health as needed. We want to plan a trip to Kailash/Manasorovar in Sep. We are arriving in Kathmandu on Sep 3. I heard that you need atleast 3 people from the same country to get the Tibet travel permit and the travelers age must be less than 70. My dad is very desperate to go since this is one trip

    Aug 14, 2014
    Answered by Tibettravel.Org
    Hi,Ravi Your dad is a strong man I know, but the local government does not allow people who are older than 70. So, we can not help, maybe you can travel to other places in Tibet like Mt. Everest Base Camp? Maybe I think the government consider the poor medical and health care conditions in western Tibet, in case the old people needs the supplement of emergency aids,it is hard to find doctor and hospital in remote and poor land. Go to Everest Base Camp, Ok ? We have several older and brave men travel to Everest Base Camp 5200m without any problem.

Of course if you do not have Tibet travel permit with you, you will be rejected for sure. In this situation, you need to apply for Tibet travel permit through our agency, Tibet vista. We can issue a Chinese visa invitation letter for you along with Tibet Travel Permit. you can get Chinese visa for sure with these two documents.
