      About Tibet travel permit Because Tibet has unique geography, climate, religion, and traffic considerations, it has not been fully opened to foreign travelers, who must have a Tibet Entry Permit before being allowed to buy a plane ticket to Tibet. (Overland paperwork is even more of a hassle, so it is nearly impossible for foreigners to enter Tibet by land.) Obtaining a Tibet Entry Permit usually requires working through a travel agency, who will plan a detailed itinerary for your time in Tibet. You must pay for a tour guide and transportation before receiving your permit, and the period of validity cannot be changed or extended. Moreover,the name listed on this document is not yours, but rather that of the travel agency that arranged it for you.

      There are two documents required for foreign tourists who want to travel in Tibet. One is the Chinese Visa, which you can apply for in Chinese Embassy in your place. Another is the Tibet Entry Permit,You can get them easily from Tibet F.I.T.Center Beijing Office. Question: How to get the travel permits?

But if you want to get the original one, it needs another 3 days (or more) to Express Deliver the permit. There is a trick that when you apply for China visa, please do not mention Tibet. After you get China visa you can easily get Tibet permit. Otherwise you have to wait for Tibet permit and then you can get China visa. Of course you will face the risk of that you might be refused to come to Tibet even if you get China visa but your destination is Tibet. In our experience seldom does TTB refuse tourists if they are not of those three kinds of people mentioned above: diplomat, journalist, government officials.
