April,17 2017 BY Catherine Jigme 0 COMMENTS

Tibet Travel Permit will not be sufficient if the travelers’ destination covers some "Closed" areas or the border area in Tibet. In addition to Tibet travel Permit, visitors also need to apply for Aliens' Travel Permit which is issued by Local Public Security Bureau.

PSB Permit - Aliens' Travel Permit to Tibet - A specific Permit for those who travel to "Closed" areas in Tibet.

As everyone knows, the most basic permit to Tibet is “ Tibet Travel permit” which is issued by Tibet travel bureau and is required as an must entry pass to Tibet for every traveler. Travelling with Tibet Travel Permit, also called TTB Permit, you can go around Lhasa city, main tourist road in Nyingchi, Gyantse, Shigatse,Namtso and Naque.

If you want to explore those "closed" places, such as Mount Everest Base Camp, Tsedang Samye Monastery, you need to further apply a “PSB Permit”, which is issued by the Local Public Security Bureau (PSB) of Tibet. Fortunately, the PSB Permit is quite easy to apply and can only be arranged by travel agencies who are just arranging the tours for you.

Note: We can only arrange your Aliens' Travel Permit upon your arrival in Lhasa, because we need the original passport and China visa to arrange it. This permit is normally applied at the destination city, for example, if you are going to travel to Mount Everest, you can get Aliens' Travel Permit in Shigatse City. 

“Closed” Areas Require PSB Permit:

At the present, you have to apply for a Travel Permit if you are planning to visit the following places:

Tsetang: Samye Monastery, Tomb of Tibetan King, Changdruk Temple, Yumbulakhang
