Hello.
I and 4 others from Australia are looking to higher Enfield 500‘s in Nepal and would like to ride through Pang La in Tibet to Everest base camp and back again.  We are wanting to travel as a group by ourselves and would like to know what we can do about getting visas for Tibet.  I read we are requiered to list a tour company on our visa application and am wanting to work out how we would be able to do this but still essentially ride as our own group.
Thanks
Slarti.

First of all please let me know in which month you want to do the motor bike tour? The bike tour is usually 10 days tour if you all can ride 300-500 per day.
For bike tour our company policy is that there should be at least 5 people in the group and if you have that then we can help you to obtain the necessary permits for your group and also for bikes. If you have 5 people in your group then you don’t need to join other groups and you can do your tour as private package tour.
The motor bikes should start/end the tour at Nepal border through China Custom. We have to obtain four different permits from local police traffic police military Tibet Tourism Bureau and also from China custom. For that you need to send clear scan copies of below items;
1. Bike license.
2. Driver’s license.
3. Bike photo
4. Bike insurance
5. Passport scan copy
Apart from above things you also need to obtain Tibet Group Visa (TGV) in Nepal from China Embassy and our tour cost don’t include that but we can help you on that. For details TGV you can check at Tibet travel permit info.
Hope everything is clear to you if not then please feel free to ask me.(Samdup)

Hello
  I have a residence visa already for China and I live in Guangzhou. In June I want to fly to Kathmandu and meet my mother. From there we want to travel to Tibet and then return to Kathmandu. I will then return to Guangzhou. Here are some questions I have. What is the best way to go about getting my mother a Chinese visa and Tibet travel permit? What is the best way for me to get a Tibet Travel permit? Will getting a Tibet Travel permit in Nepal affect my Chinese Residence visa? Thank You
admin03-052015): Dear Majesta
Please note: if you plan to come to Tibet from Nepal you don't need to apply for Chinese visa but for a Tibet Group Visa all you need to do is to send us your passport scan or clear photo and we will apply for the Tibet travel permit here at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter here and send it to our Nepalese agent so then our Nepalese agent will meet you at your arrival in Kathmandu and collect your passport to apply for the Group Visa which is compulsory for travelers entering Tibet from Nepal. The group visa application takes at least 2 full working days in Kathmandu therefore please make sure you have enough time for that. (Note: the group visa is only applicable from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu)
That is good news for the situation of your mom as she doesn’t have a Chinese visa.
But as you already have a Chinese visa if you will first meet your mom in KTM then travel to Tibet together when you apply for the Tibet group visa in KTM your Chinese visa will be cancelled.
There are two options:
1. Your mom fly from KTM to Tibet you fly to Tibet from Guangzhou and meet her in Tibet then travel from Tibet to Nepal together after the tour in Nepal you fly from Nepal to Guangzhou.
2. You fly to KTM first to meet mom then she flies from KTM to Tibet with Tibet group visa you fly from KTM to mainland China first then from mainland China to Tibet with Tibet travel permit and meet her again return to Nepal then back to mainland China.
Let me know your idea please. Tibet travel permit application takes around 15 days and need scans of your passport and valid Chinese visa also as you are holding residence visa not tourist visa will need a work permit or company invitation letter.
Here is a tour which suits your schedule our group tour 8 days overland to Nepal from Lhasa please check details I sent to you by email.(Sherry)

(Note: the group visa is only applicable from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu) this group visa allows you to continue trip to mainland China after Tibet in maximum 28 days.
We would usually not recommend to do the overland tour from Nepal side to Tibet so I am sorry we don’t have group tours going for the same route. Because once you cross the border you will reach Tibet as highest as 5000m around Everest base Camp you won’t have enough time to acclimatize to the high altitude so will be easy to catch the altitude sickness. Would you like to take the plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa then start the tour from Lhasa (3600m)? We have this kind of group tour check the itinerary and price below please and let me know your idea thank you.(Sherry)
