Iam a U.K. citizen living in India for the past 3 years. I have a OCI card which allows me to enter and stay in India indefinitely. I would like to visit Kailash Manasarovar the forthcoming year. Could you guide and help me.
Best wishes

If you hold UK passport yes we can help you apply for the travel permit the process takes more than 1 month.

As you are traveling alone I highly recommend you joining our group tour 15 days Mt. Kailash tour based on maximum 10 travelers in 1 group to share the cost with other travelers. Because solo traveler going for the Kailash tour costs too much and usually would choose to join in a group to make friends with travelers from all over the world.

Considering visiting Tibet from Nepal in November. Would like to know tour options and if it‘s possible to get there over land.
admin06-162017): Dear Sofia Christo
Please note: if you plan to come to Tibet from Kathmandu Nepal you don't need to apply for Chinese visa all you need to do is to send me clear photo of your passport main page we will apply for the Tibet travel permit here in Lhasa at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter (TTB) and send it to our Nepalese agent named Prakash. He will arrange meeting you at your arrival in your hotel in Kathmandu and collect your passport to apply for the Group Visa which is compulsory for travelers entering Tibet from Nepal you will pay for the visa fee and the agent’s service fee to him directly this fee is not included in our tour cost. The embassy accepts cash USD only the money must be clean new USD not torn no scratches old series or ink printed dollars. And you need to also bring some passport-sized photos.

If you don't have dollars but you will be staying in Nepal for a few days you can pay him in nepali currency equivalent to USD with the market buying exchange rate.
For the price you can refer to this link http://www.exploretibet.com/visa-permits/ just for reference.

Your schedule in Kathmandu should at least be like below:
Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu
Day 2: group visa apply (must be embassy working day)
Day 3 :group visa collection(must be embassy working day)
Day 4: depart to lhasa

But please note the border between Nepal and Tibet was closed since 2015 due to the tragic earthquake. So the only from is taking a flight to Tibet.
Tibet tour information:
For your reference Here I advise you to do 8 days EBC 8 Days EBC Exploration Group Tour
exploration group tour. But please let me know your travel time and number of travelers I can tell you’re the cost and departing date accordingly.
Why 8 days EBC tour?
1 this is the most popular trip in Tibet we nearly have more than 3000 travelers in a year taking this trip.
2 this is the highest mountain must be once in a lifetime.
3 you can enjoy the most beautiful sunset and sunrise of Mt. Everest. Please check the photos which taken by on 12nd May.

Hi!
My name is Kelly Marx and I am looking to travel to Tibet in December or January. I am currently working in Xiamen China on a Z Visa. I want to travel to Tibet when my contract is over. I will be on an exit visa. Is it possible to travel to Tibet on an exit visa? If not please let me know what I should do.
Thank you!
admin06-192017): Hi Kelly
In my own opinion you better travel to Tibet with this Z visa just provide me with your work permit or company invitation letter. That will be enough.

Thank you!
Have a wonferful day!!!

Hi there
I am from Singapore and my boyfriend is British.
We live in Thailand and we have a crazy plan to drive from Bangkok to Tibet.
Please would you advise if it is possible?
Many thanks
Chin Chin
admin06-142017): Dear Chin Chin
Thanks for your inquiry It is possible. Though you will need to get permission to drive your car from the China Tourism Department. This we will not able to work on because we have to send a person to Beijing to approve this permit. That will take around 3 – 5 working days. The whole process is extremely costy for you. Therefore its best for you take the Flight from Bangkok to Mainland China. Then take the Flight or Train to Lhasa.
Best Regards

I am a USA citizen  working in India for three months. I would like to visit Tibet the first week of August. What do you recommend for visa travel permit and an  itenerary?
admin06-092017): Dear Dorothy Catherine Dunwody
Suggestion:
If you enter Tibet from India you can fly to Nepal firstly then take plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa Tibet which is the nearest way and most convenient way. Also In this way you don’t need to apply for Chinese tourist individual visa since only accept Tibet group visa which we will help you with it. please check the info below.
1. Please note: if you plan to come to Tibet from Kathmandu Nepal you don't need to apply for Chinese visa all you need to do is to send me clear photo of your passport main page we will apply for the Tibet travel permit here in Lhasa at the same time we will obtain the Tibet group visa invitation letter and send it to our Nepalese agent named Prakash.

Hello I am hoping to have 6-8 days in Tibet from the 28/07 ideally coming from Kathmandu.
My final destination is  xi‘an
Do u have any recommendations for those days?
Also should I apply for my Chinese visa first before the TTP?
Following advice I will be getting a visa using flights I intend not to take into China I presume this won‘t be an issue when I land in Lhasa from Kathmandu?
Thanks!
