According to Chinese official regulations, you cannot travel to Tibet independently .You must book a tour package to Tibet through a tour company. A special travel permit is required to enter Tibet, in addition to a valid China visa. Holiday China Tour has designed several flexible and affordable packages, please contact us for further details.
Beside a valid passport with a valid Chinese visa, a Travel Entry Permit or TTB Permit is required for entering into Tibet legally. If you want to visit the unopened areas, you need another permit - Aliens Travel Permit or PSB Permit. You can get all these permits very easily from us.
This permit is issued by the Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB), so also called TTB Permit. It is required while booking the flights and trains to Lhasa and checking in at the airports. Groups traveling by land cruisers also need this permit.
There are two pages for the permit: one is the approval letter from the Tibet Tourism Bureau with an unique number and anti-fales label at the top right and another one is the group name list with the group memebers basic data. Both pages are stamped by the Bureau. Usually we'll help you prepare the permit application one month ahead of your travel time.
PSB Permit / Aliens' Travel Permit
When travel to areas officially closed (such as Gyantse, Sakya, Mt. Everest, Samye, the Yarlung Valley, etc.), an Aliens' Travel Permit issued by the Public Security Bureau (PSB) is required.
