Although it’s called the Chinese Group Visa, it can be both applied by one single traveler or a group of travelers. That is to say no matter individual traveler or group travelers, as long as they participate in a Tibet tour organized by an authorized local Tibet tour operator in Lhasa, they are allowed to apply for the group visa in Kathmandu. On the other hand, Chinese Group Visa can only be submitted and applied by authorized Nepal travel companies, individuals are not allowed to apply in person at the embassy, but please do not worry that our visa agent partner in Nepal will assist you to obtain it for sure without any hassle.
Chinese Group Visa
Please note that this group visa only applies to people who plan to travel into Tibet province in China, if you do not plan to visit Tibet from Nepal, you can then apply for a normal Chinese tourists visa by yourself in Kathmandu, which means you get your normal Chinese visa (not Chinese Group Visa) and fly from Kathmandu to either Chengdu, Guangzhou and etc.

Dear Ms. Pa***，
Thanks very much for your inquiry. From your travel time, here we recommend one 6 days Exploration of Legendary Ancient Cities group tour to you, and we currently have one departure date on 14th of November. Taking train from Lanzhou to Lhasa will cost you about 24 hours, and we are happy to help you book train ticket. Please kindly note that there is no "permit-only" or "accommodation-only" service, foreign tourists are not allowed to travel Tibet alone, you have to book a pre-organized tour including guide, car, and hotel as well. As you are only one person, joining a group tour is the most economical way. We will prepare guide, car, accommodation, Tibet permit for you. Applying for Tibet Permit requires copy of your passport and Chinese visa, and it usually takes about 15-20 days, if you want to join our tour, please send copy of your passport and visa to us quickly. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
