We truly recommend that you’d better get the tickets 1-2 day prior to departure date at least, and don’t forget to bring your passport to the train station. If your schedule is too tight to get the tickets in advance, you must get the train tickets 2 hours in advance in case of emergency. Once our Tibet travel agency booked the train tickets, we will send you the ticketing reconfirmation codes with which you can get the tickets out from railway station ticketing hall. Meanwhile you will need to provide the Tibet permits photo copies when you ask for the train tickets, and when you travel on the train, the railway police may check your Tibet permits document.

Tibet Group Tours (2)

Kailash group tour is doable in April every year. But we need to keep the trip flexible to meet the instantly changing weather condition. Welcome to join our Kailash group tour from middle of April in 2020, 2021 with Tibet local guide travel service.

Well, this is a common question by many worldwide travelers. April is early spring in Tibet and weather gets warming up, however in most places along the way to Mt.Kailash, it is still cold, and it is very possible that the Kailash trekking trail is not accessible especially in early April, even though sometimes the Kora is doable around middle of April. But if there is heavy snow, travelers will almost not be able do the full Parikrama (kora). Our agency and operators do suggest foreign traveler not begin the trip as early as before April 15 and have the trip little bit more flexible, if in case during the specific scheduled trekking days the weather condition is no good, we can adjust the trip to Guge Kingdom first and come back for the Kora once weather gets better. As many people may not know that, the weather changes quite often a day, and people have more chances to do the Kailash Kora once whether gets better soon. Read further on Tibet Kailash Tours.

Tibet Alien’s travel permits are for foreign travelers to travel in the not fully open regions in Tibet. And these places refer to Tsetang (such as Samye Monastery, Mindrolin Monastery, etc), Mt. Everest Base Camp, Saga, Payang, Mt. Kailash, Lake Manasarovar, Guge Kingdom Ruins, and Lake Draksumtso in east Tibet (Nyingchi prefecture). We apply these permits in local “Public Security Bureau“, so that is why this permit has another name of “PSB permit”. If your travel includes Lake Draksumtso and if you leave Lhasa for this sightseeing and Nyingchi is your last stop, we will need to apply this permit in Lhasa.

Updated on April 24, 2017: Do I have to find Malaysian travelling companions to travel Tibet? In my group, do we have to have the same nationality? Some travelers from Malaysia still ask this question. However since 2 years ago, the Tibet travel permits restriction on the same nationality is already cancelled. Now different foreign nationality travelers can travel together in Tibet. This is a favorable policy so far in Tibet tourism. We wish more and more travelers can travel together, sharing the group tour cost.

How to get Tibet travel permit?

Many foreign travelers often tell us that: some travel agencies say the Tibet travel permit is totally free. Well as local Tibet travel agency, we want to tell you that, this is their promotional words and it is not free at all. This is a tourist trap and they do not offer your permits only services. They must sell you something before they can apply Tibet travel permits. And few other agencies may tell you that the permit service fee is around RMB 1500-2000, this is sky high price and this is not true as well. So for Tibet permits only, there are lots of rumors. Here lets state it clear that travel agency in Tibet must prepare lots of work to apply Tibet travel permits according to the permits schedule. If your trip is with Everest base camp, you d better confirm a tour booking at least 15 days before arrival date, and if your trip covers Mt. Kailash, it is safer to confirm a tour booking at least 30 days before arrival date. For easy cultural tour in and around Lhasa, you can even apply permits 10 days in advance only. Here below we will share how to get the Tibet travel permits.

Tibet travel permits application process:

  1.  confirm a full tour or minimum tour service with local Tibet travel agency per above time schedule. It is better to confirm earlier to avoid urgent situation.
  2. Once local Tibet travel agency gets your passport copy and/or China visa photo copies, they can prepare to apply permits 1 month-45 days at most.
  3. Permits will be ready at least 1 weeks before your arrival date in Lhasa, as experienced Tibet travel agencywe get permits almost 20 days in advance.
  4. One permits got from Lhasa, agency can send permits to your address in China, and it is not wise to send permits abroad. as the international express from Lhasa is too complicated and too risky.
  5. Then at least 2-3 days before your arrival date, you can get the Tibet travel permits and fly to Lhasa without any problem.

How can I obtain Aliens’ Travel Permits (ATP) for my Tibet Travel? This is another common question about Tibet permits. Permits to visit places that are not declared open are known as Aliens’ Travel Permits (ATP). So if you want to travel to places besides Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, you will need Aliens’ Travel Permits (ATP) issued by Local Public Security Bureau (PSB). A single permit (with a group’s all name list) is normally issued to all the people who are traveling together and the permit just name one of them and states how many others are accompanying him. After you arrive, we need your original passport and visa to apply for the permit in Lhasa or Shigatse and it normally takes only 30 minutes to get this. Our Tibetan tour guide will apply and keep the permit for you.

Normally our Tibet travel agency can obtain the Tibet TTB travel permit 10-30 days before the starting date of the trip. If you book the trip earlier, we can get the permit earlier. However one month in advance is the earliest we can. If you are going to fly into Tibet from any airport in China, you will need the original permit to board the flights. We will send the original permit to you by EMS or Air-Express which takes 1-3 days within China and we need your exact post address such as your hotel or residence address in China (including contact person, contact phone number and the correct name under which the hotel booking is made). If you take the train to Lhasa from Chongqing, Xi’an, Lanzhou, you also need the original permit to get the ticket and we will send it to you by EMS or Air-Express as well. We suggest you take the train ticket in advance to avoid any urgency or unexpected situation. If you take the train from any other city’s station to Lhasa, you only need to have the photocopy of the permit and we will email you the electronic copy to you in advance. The police in Golmud station will check the permit so you should keep it safe. However, our local tour guide will collect your TTB permit after your arrival and guide will need to hold it for your whole trip in Tibet and return all Tibet travel permits to our agency after the trip.

Normally it will be easy for you apply for a China tourist visa, “L” Visa. Most Chinese embassies and consulates will issue a standard 30-day, single entry tourist visa in three to five days. If you are lucky, some embassies may give you a 60 or 90 day visa. If you want more flexibility to enter and leave China for several times, most Chinese embassies will issue a double-entry or multiple entry visa. For those who work, study, or live temporarily in China, you need other related China visa such as “F” Visa, “X” Visa, “Z” and “M” Visa. We strongly suggest that you would better not mention any words of Tibet on your China visa application form due to its sensitive political condition. If you have any trouble applying for a China visa, we can help you apply and send you an electronic copy of Tibet visa invitation letter to help you solve the problem. And we normally apply this visa invitation letter 1-3 months in advance. However, we do not receive clients who is a congressman, journalist or military.

When you travel under a foreign passport, you will have to travel legally  according to the Tibet local authority. During your traveling in Tibet, the three main primary documents are passports, China visa (or Tibet group visa) and Tibet entry permits. Different tour destination will need further document such as military permits, foreign affairs border passing permit, alien’s travel permits. Here is the document list for Tibet traveling. Please double check before coming to our land.

  1. Valid Passports (at least valid for 6 months after your departure date of Tibet)
  2. Valid China visa (for entering from China);
  3. Tibet group visa (for entering Tibet from Nepal, you do not need to apply China via in your country, even so it will be cancelled);
  4. Tibet entry travel permits for all Tibet tours;
  5. Alien’s travel permits for trip covering Everest. Tsetang (Samye monastery), Kailash and north-loop Grand Tibet, eastern Tibet such as Draksumtso lake;
  6. Foreign affairs permit (policy keeps changing on this section)
  7. Border defense passing allowance permit (trip between Nepal and Tibet)
  8. Military permits.

And here is another list of the documents which you will have to provide by email to us when you book a tour, we need these docs to apply some of the above necessary permits.

  1. Photocopies of valid passports data page for all travelers (upon booking)
  2. Photocopies of valid China visa (you can send it after you get it)
  3. Working certificate or student Id card copies if you do not hold “L” China visa but Z or F type of China visa.
  4. Marriage certificate or relatives’ statement with signature if you hold Q category China visa.

While booking your Tibet tour, we would like you to send us the copy of your Passport and China Visa for every member of the group. The copy of passport should be the same one you will be using to get your Chinese visa. If you renew your passports, but the China via is on the expired passport, please provide both passports photo copies.

If your visa is not the “L” category, i.e., tour category china visa, you will need to provide us the additional supporting document such as student certificates, resident and Work Permit and so on.

Please provide passport copies at least 2-4 weeks before arrival date. For Tibet tour without Kailash, eastern Tibet, North-loop Grand Tibet, we can accept urgent tour booking 2 weeks before your arrival date, but if your trip covers the places mentioned here, you’d better send us your passport photo copies 4 weeks to 5 weeks in advance at least, most of our Kailash travelers provide us passport copies half year in advance.

Tibet Travel Permit is only issued by Tibet Tourism Administration in Lhasa, together with other Chinese authorities such as military office, and foreign affairs office, national security office, public security bureau, etc. Therefore, an only local registered travel agency based in Lhasa can help you apply for it. Hence it is impossible for you to apply permits by yourself, and you will have to book your Tibet tour directly or indirectly with a local travel agency in Lhasa.

We do not suggest this kind of action because all procedures need time and strict inspection. But if you have any urgent situation and have only one week to prepare for everything needed for the Tibetan trip, as a professional and well-experienced Tibet travel agency, we can help you with all the documents you need (Group Visa for entry from Kathmandu by flight, TTB Permit). But this can be only possible for city tours like visits to Lhasa (Lhasa, Namtso and Ganden etc short distance and fully open area), Lake Namtso, Lake Yamdrok, Gyantse and Shigatse. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent although we will try our best. If it is unlucky, you do not have to pay us single dollar for this TOP urgent case.

This is a common question about Tibet travel permits and Tibet visa. Well, you need a Tibet Group Visa. However, you cannot apply this by yourself. We will send an electronic copy of visa invitation letter to our local travel agency in Kathmandu and they will apply this for you. There is no need to apply for an individual China Visa in your country if you decide to travel to Tibet from Nepal because the Chinese Embassy will cancel your China Visa when you receive your Tibet Group Visa.

Well this is a very common question asked by many Indian travelers, especially many questions are raised by travelers from India.
