Is it still possible to get a tibet travel permit?
Please let us know as soon as you can.
We are in Shanghai right now.
Thank you
admin03-012017): Dear Niko Bünzel
The Tibet Travel Permits application takes around 10 days start to apply from middle March. So we would suggest you at least enter Tibet from April and later.
So when do you like to start the trip?
Please let me know so that we can give you more information about it.

Hi! My wife and I are from Brazil. We are in Australia and New Zealand until June.
We would like to visit Tibet in June and we would like to know if there is enough time. Besides:
1) our Chinese Visa expired in December 2016. Do we need another one ? If so can we obtain it in Australia ?
2) what documents we need to go to Tibet ?
3) we are looking for a 6-8 day group excursion for cultural and spiritual experience. Which one do you recommend ?
Thank you

admin02-242017): Dear Leonardo Novais
Permit information: We also need your passport and China visa copy for the permit application. Please send me clear photos or scan copies. If your China Visa is not an "L” visa then you must also provide additional documents such as student certificates work permits residence permits and so on. It will takes at least 18 days to work on the Tibet Travel Permits
for you. As your visa is expired in December so you need to extant or apply a new one. Yes we think you can obtain it in Australia of Chinese embassy but you need to consult with them.
Besides as you will take plane to Lhasa you will need to give us your address in mailand China before flying to Lhasa so that when your permit is issued we will mail it to your hotel which usually takes 3 days with the permit you can board the plane to Lhasa. Thank you.
If you time is allowed then we recommend that you can join our 8 Days EBC Exploration Group Tour this Tibet tour is one of the most popular adventure tours in the world as its visitors cross the mighty Himalayas and view the panorama of the world’s highest peaks but if your time is not enough so we recommend that you also can join our 6 Days Cultural Experiences Group Tour it is also one classic itinerary.

Exactly date to be confirmed because at the moment we just broke the flight to shanghai and then
We are planning to stay 3/4 days and we would like to see as much as we can.
We need a private guide\driver for the entire trip.
Can you please advise the price and itinerary for either 3 days or 4 days.
Thanks in advance
admin02-222017): Dear Daniel
Our private tours are with private fluent English speaking guide local Tibetan driver you can decide where to stay longer for taking photos and shorter to get to next place definitely do not need to take other members into consideration more flexible and everything is prepared for you two only!
Please note that the first week of October is Chinese golden week for national day all of the hotels tickets are going to be fully booked. Therefore we suggest we can schedule the travel time after 7th October to avoid this rush hour.
Since our travellers have to spend the first day in Lhasa for acclimatizing due to the high plateau therefore we suggest you at least spending four days on this tour so that you are able to have enough time to experience the most mysterious culture and tradition in Tibet.You can join our 4 Days Lhasa Highlights Private Tour.

Hello We are very interested in this tour but we are on a tight schedule because we arrive to Kathmandu on March 31st and have a booked trekking starting on April 10th to the Annapurna Circuit. We were wondering if you have something that goes from Lhasa to the Nepal border including Lhasa Ronghphu Monastery and Everst Tourist/base Camp that lasts 8 days or less from April 1st to April 9th.
Also regarding the Tibet Permit am planning a trip to Nepal-China and I am having troubles finding reliable information on the Tibet tour. I am Mexican so I need a Chinese visa to enter the country I can do the paperwork here in Mexico. I arrive to Kathmandú (from Mexico) on March 31st and I am planning to take a tour around Lhasa from April 2nd to April 9th so I was wondering if there is a way to obtain the Tibet permit here in Mexico or and electronic version so I can take my flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa on April 2nd.
Thank you! Anareli
admin02-212017): Dear Anareli
The border from KTM is close now so you only can flight from KTM or fly to Lhasa after the tour.
Please note: if you plan to come to Tibet from Nepal you don't need to apply for Chinese 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 travellers entering Tibet from Nepal. The group visa application takes at least 2 full working days in Kathmandu therefore please make sure you will be in kathmandu before 2 working days.(Note: the group visa is only applicable from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu)
Tour information:
Yes you can join our 8 Days EBC Exploration Group Tour departure on April 2nd.For group tour there will be at most 10 group members in one group and the starting and ending dates are fixed. You can share the cost and fun with others.

What is permit entry fee per person if enter from Lasha?
admin02-212017): Dear Ram Patel
Permit information: It is impossible for you to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit without booking a tour together from a travel agency so the permit entry fee will be included in the tour package. And Tibet travel permit process takes around 18 days and we need 3 days to send you the permit in mainland China so we need your clear scanned copy of passport and China tourist visa. Yes we will take care of the permit for you.
If you find Tibet Tours you are interested in please let me know so that we can arrange for you accordingly.
Best Regards
