December,25 2023 BY Master Kungga Dundruk 0 COMMENTS

YES, Tibet is open to tourists from all over the world now! With the resumption of Chinese Tourist Visas, travelers can now obtain a China Visa and a Tibet Travel Permit to visit Tibet in 2024.

If you already have a valid Chinese visa, you can now apply for the Tibet Travel Permit with ease.

For those who need to obtain a Chinese Visa, we are glad to guide you through the process and provide any necessary visa invitation letter.

After a long wait of years, now is the best time to plan your travel to Tibet in 2024! You can check the following tips to be fully prepared.

Can I Visit Tibet in 2024? It's Time to Start Your Travel Plan!

Yes, you can travel to Tibet in 2024 with a valid passport and a Chinese Visa. With the reopening of the China Tourist Visa, visitors from around the world can travel to Tibet as normally as before the COVID outbreak.

Rather than worrying about dietary restrictions, you can just focus on planning the destinations you want to explore in Tibet.

How Do I Visit Tibet By Using the China-Visa Free Policy in 2024?

From December 1, 2023, to November 30, 2024, tourists holding passports from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Malaysia can enter China without a visa for up to 15 days.

This policy simplifies travel for these citizens to visit China, including the Tibet Autonomous Region. Although a Tibet Travel Permit is still necessary for a trip to Tibet, the application process has been simplified — you can now easily apply for the Tibet Travel Permit using your passport only.

During your 15-day visa-free stay in China, consider exploring popular Tibet tours like the 8-day Lhasa to Everest Base Camp tour or the 10-day classic trip covering Lhasa, Everest Base Camp, and the holy Lake Namtso for a panoramic view of the highlights of the Tibet Plateau.

Moreover, to make the most of your time, we offer a 13-day Mount Kailash tour, which allows you to visit Everest Base Camp and complete the 3-day Kailash kora during the epic overland journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu.

Is Tibet safe to travel to in 2024? The Current Situation in Tibet

Currently, Tibet is safe for travel in 2024. You can enjoy the stunning natural landscapes, unique culture, and spiritual traditions as before. The local people are also welcoming and friendly. So you don’t need to worry about your safety in Tibet.

Healthy Tips for Your Satefy in Tibet

Although there is no COVID-19 restriction any longer, it is suggested to wear a mask in outdoor and public places and you need to always pay attention to your hygiene.

Altitude sickness is a normal physiological phenomenon. There is no need to overstress. Please give your body some time to adapt to the altitude of Tibet and do not do strenuous exercise during the first few days. If you do feel uncomfortable, please tell your local travel guide immediately.

What to Prepare to Visit Tibet in 2024?

According to the new policy, tourists do not need to provide health certificates, like the Green Health Code and proof of a negative nucleic acid test, to take a flight or train to Tibet. This makes traveling to Tibet in 2024 much easier.

First of all, you need to obtain a Tibet Travel Permit, which is a must for all international travelers to enter Tibet, including expats in China. The permit cannot be applied in the name of an individual, and we can help you to get it.

Your Chinese Visa, passport (valid for a least 6 months), as well as a working certificate if you work in the mainland of China or admission certificate if you study in the mainland of China are required, to apply for the Tibet Permit. Just remember to leave at least 20 days to apply for the Tibet Permit from us, before your Tibet entry.
