  • All foreign travelers must present a travel permit when boarding trains and planes, departing from Mainland China, bound for Tibet. Travelers will need to provide TCTS for an address in China (such as a hotel) for the permit to be sent. A tour guide will be waiting at the border or airport for those coming from Nepal.
  • In order to help ensure there are no problems during the Tibet travel permit application process, travelers must submit copies of their passport and Chinese visas at least 10 days before arrival. Personal information, such as occupation, will also be needed as some individuals need special permission to enter Tibet. Be sure all information matches passports and visa pages exactly.
  • The groups guide will maintain possession of the permit and see to it that any necessary additional permits are obtained before leaving Lhasa. Travelers will not need to worry about keeping several travel documents safe!

Tibet travel permits can be relatively easy to obtain so long travelers provide the requested documents and information in a timely fashion; the group’s tour operator will take care of the rest. With the 2015 travel season right around the corner, be sure to have those passports and visas ready!
