Tibet Travel Tips
All foreign travelers need a Tibet Entry Permit for entering Tibet (Travel Permits and Military Permits may also be needed for areas outside Lhasa). Permits can only be obtained by qualified Chinese tour operators and the application process often changes without warning. Foreigners are not allowed to tour Tibet without a local guide.
- Book a tour with us.
- Submit a copy of your passport ID and China visa pages at least 20 days in advance.
- If you work/live in China, you also need to submit a working certificate issued by your company or a proof of residence.
- The Tibet Tourism Bureau will check the documents and send us a paper travel permit 7 days before you enter Tibet.
- We will get the travel permit to you before you board your flight/train to Lhasa.
Foreigners can hardly ever obtain travel permits for March, during Tibetan New Year, when Tibet is closed for political reasons.

Lhasa Tibet Adventure
Coco helped us plan our ideal trip to recent trip Tibet. She was informative, patient, and helped us tailor the trip to our own needs. She made excellent suggestions and supported us with the permits, travel itinerary, and even flights. She is an incredible asset to the China Highlights Team! Our local guide Tenzin was also excellent and flexible with us each day. I was hit with some altitude sickness and Tenzin helped me get oxygen and medicine needed. He worked with us each day to help us eat local foods and recommended ideal times to visit sites to minimize wait times. We were able to see everything on our list and eat excellent food. Thank you Coco and Tenzin! more
