Hello
I live in Australia and was wondering what the process is to travel to Tibet. How do I obtain a Visa or Permit to enter Tibet? Are there any other things I should be looking into like Travel Insurance?
If you could also advise on good airlines for travel and accommodation that would be great.
Thanks

Then we have enough time to prepare and to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit for you.

hi i am a malaysian holding china employment permit. i am currently in fujian. i would like to visit nyingchi and lhasa in one trip by train starting from chongqing. one problem is i would like to start from 20th feb. also during this time my passport would be held by my company HR department or China labour ministry for renewal so i would likely be given a letter by the labor ministry for travel within china (and not have my passport with me). according to my company HR my passport will only be returned to me with renewed work visa on 1 march. i would like to know if this trip is possible under my circumstances if yes i would like to know how much would it cost thank you.

But we are sorry to tell you that it is impossible for you travelling to Tibet without passport according to the policy.
AlsoTibet Travel Permits is closed during March every year and will reopen in early April we’d like to suggest you arrive in Tibet around middle April is that ok with you? Because the permit application takes around 15 days.

I would like to join a tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu in July 2017.
Is this possible?
admin02-122017): Dear Steven Quinteyn
Please note that overland tour to Nepal border is no possible as per current government policy as none of borders are open for foreigners.
So now only option is join a group tour and do the tour with best rate and then take a flight to Kathmandu at the end of tour.
And for that we are sure you have few options for group tour like 4 Days Lhasa highlights 6 Days Cultural Experiences 8 Days EBC Exploration and 15 Days Kailash tour as well.
As group tour is the cheapest way to travel Tibet and it’s most suitable for single travellers like you to save money as well.
Best Regards
