Enter Tibet From Nepal

All tourists entering Tibet from Nepal have to apply for their China Visa in Nepal, through the consulate of People’s Republic of China in Kathmandu. Keep in mind that this visa application is compulsory, despite that you have already had a China visa issued in other countries. This policy is regulated by the border treaty signed between Nepal and China. The China visa you get in Kathmandu is a group visa, which is valid for 15 or 20 days. A group may be any number of travelers, and may be just one traveler. This visa is usually not placed in your passport, but is a sheet of paper that lists all of the names of the people in your group along with their nationalities, birth dates and passport numbers. This group visa is usually not able to extend. With the group Chinese visa, members in your travel groups need to enter and exit at the same time and the same place.

To obtain a China Visa in Nepal, you will need to allow about 4 days in Nepal for the visa application and Tibet permit to be processed. It takes at least 2 working days to obtain a visa from the Chinese Embassy in Nepal and the Embassy only works on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You will need to use an authorized travel agency in Nepal to help with your application.

Hello can a get a visa for 30 days and hon long timme do a have before a must go go tibet when a got The visa

Single-entry China visas are usually valid for 3 months after the issue date, and will permit you to stay in China for a maximum of 30 days. This visa will allow you to travel as a tourist or conduct general business activities. If you would like to visit Tibet, you will need to apply for a Tibet Travel Permit, which is issued by Tibet Tourism Bureau. It takes about 1 month to get the permit, so you will need to apply and get China visa before that.
