Tibet Travel Permit Information
Tibet Travel Permits (or Tibet visa) are the necessary documents required for a tour to Tibet in addition to a Chinese visa. Tibet Travel Permits vary according to the places that travelers plan to visit, but the most basic one is the permit issued by Tibet Tourism Bureau. It is required as a must entry pass to Tibet for every foreign traveler.
Due to Tibet's unique ethnic traditions, cultural heritage, tourist service facilities, reception capacity, ecological protection needs, and traffic situation, the National Tourism Administration prescribed that foreign tourists, Taiwan and overseas Chinese tourists (except for Hong Kong and Macao residents holding Chinese passports or return certificates) have to get a Tibet Travel Permit before they are allowed to enter Tibet. All tourists can get it through a travel agency except for diplomats, journalists, and government officials. They have to go through the Tibet Foreign Affairs Office.
