I am a holder of a 10 year business visa. which expires in 2025. I plan on visiting Chengdu in the spring and would like to visit Lhasa only for a couple days. Do I need a Chinese tourist visa to get a Tibet visa? Do I need to book any travel or accommodations in advance?
Thank you
Casey Powers

Business visa is also acceptable but you also need to send either work permit or company invitation letter to prove you are working in which company. So what you need to send to us for permit application after booking Tibet tour with us will be scanned copies or clear photos of your passport + business visa + work permit/invitation. We will take care of the rest.
If you are traveling alone I’d suggest you to join one of our group tours if Lhasa only we have 4 Days Lhasa highlights.This includes accommodation for the tour so you don’t need to book anything. There are also fixed departure dates and price per person in this link please check.
You only need to book your flight/train tickets into and out of Lhasa or you can also book through us.

Tibet Travel Permits;Tibet Travel Permits is an essential permits needed for all the foreign travellers and this permit can be obtained at least 18 days. To apply for the Tibet Travel Permits I will need you to send us your clear scan copies of passports and Chinese visa.
If you will take train to Lhasa you only need the copy of the permit to abord the train which we will mail it by the email.
According to your interest I recommend our 11 days Xining Lhasa Train Tour to you. For private tour there are only you two guide and driver in this group you can decide on when you would like to start and end this tour on the way of travelling you can decide where to stop to take pictures or stay for longer or shorter time if guide says it’s safe and are allowed it’s more flexible. But as no other travellers will be sharing the cost with you price for private tour will be more expensive especially for less members. I suggest that you can invite more friend to join the tour then you can share the cost with them.

Dear Sir
Am Senthil fromIndia
Please let me know when kailash mansarovar yatra 2017 formalities started like apply the form and visa
admin12-052016): Dear Senthil
The Tibet Travel Permits for 2017 will start to issue from the 1st of April though we are extremely Local Travel agency based in Lhasa Tibet like us are not allowed to organise the Kailash tour for Indian travellers. Therefore you will need to find a Nepal or India based travel Agency to arrange your Tibet Travel Permits & organise your trip. As it is the government rules… But if you have more than 30 people then we are allowed to work for you.

Can you organize tour for group of American citizens most ly Indian in month of September from LHASA to Kailash if yes pls give us rates we are leading travel agency based at India we also need Indian food for our clients while on tour pls give us more info
admin12-022016): Dear Sanjay Ji
If all your clients are Indians with US passports then it’s not a problem to make arrangements for Kailash trip in Sep. Please note that you must confirm the tour and send me all the documents before 25 days in advance so that we can process the permit and obtain it on time for your group.
Moreover food arrangements is not a problem as well as we can hire a chef who can arrange Indian meals during the trip.
To issue you a tour and cost please let me know how many days your group want to travel and how many people in the group.
As it’s important to know the group size and duration of trip to issue cost the trip as the cost will be cheaper if there is more people in a group.
If you don’t have any idea and please refer some of Mt.Kailash Private Tour

Permit information: We can help you get the Tibet Travel Permits for you include the Tibet Travel Permit Frontier Permit Alien Permit for you. Travel Permits is an essential permits needed for all the foreign travellers and this permit can be obtained with 18 days. The cost will include in the total cost you do not to pay extra. To apply for the Tibet Travel Permits we will need you to send us your clear scan copies of passports and Chinese visa.
Since after 2007 the Tibet Tourism Bureau announced that all the foreigner should contract with a Lhasa based local agency where every group or individual tourist is compulsory to lead by a licensed guide and driver for whole trip whether a traveller is doing cycling trekking or driving tours in Tibet. So any trip in Tibet is selling in packages or organized tours freelancers or independent travelers are not allowed in whole Tibet. So all our tour is quoted with packages tour include tour guide tourist van permit accommodation in Tibet. Please take the above point into serious consideration and then plan your tour since those rules are directly from local government and that is out of our hand.
According to your interest we recommend our 6 Days Cultural Excursion Private Tour to you. For private tour there are only you two guide and driver in this group you can decide on when you would like to start and end this tour on the way of travelling you can decide where to stop to take pictures or stay for longer or shorter time if guide says it’s safe and are allowed it’s more flexible. But as no other travellers will be sharing the cost with you price for private tour will be more expensive especially for less members. For group tour there will be at most 10 group members in one group and the starting and ending dates are fixed price will be cheaper. Itinerary can be the same.
