Rumor Busted: Tibet Travel Permit Application still ran smoothly in Sep
It is well-known that the golden season to have a Tibet tour starts from May to October every year. Unexpectedly, recently rumors as to whether Tibet travel will be closed have become widespread among local Tibet travel agencies and online commercial tour operators. As a result, dozens of travel operators persuaded foreign tourists who are scheduled to travel to Tibet on September to cancel, postpone or alter their itineraries, causing great ticket loss on tourists’ side.
Rumors can be categorized as follows:
“All foreign Tibet tourists have to depart from Tibet before the deadline Sep, 3."
“The issue of Tibet Travel Permit will be temporarily suspended in Sep."
“Foreign tourists are forbidden to travel to Tibet during Sep 3-12 as the celebration of the 50th anniversary of founding of Tibet Autonomous Region is scheduled to be held during that time"
The Truth is:
None of the above rumors was proven by officials of Tibet Tourism Bureau.
The Reality is:
All the previously accepted tours are scheduled to proceed as planned. Yet due to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of founding of Tibet Autonomous Region, some of the attractions may be visited in a different order. Only those who previously didn't have any agreement with the local Tibet travel agency and wanted to randomly apply for Tibet Travel Permit during Sep3-12 will be denied. The restriction on the issue of Tibet Travel Permit only works during Sep3-12. The application and issue will resume shortly after that.
Only foreign tourists who both have Chinese Visa and Tibet Travel Permit (also known as Tibet Visa) can be allowed to travel in Tibet. Meanwhile, he or she must travel with the company of a guide.
