As all we know that air ticket price with stopovers is much cheaper than those direct non-stop one. To spend less on air ticket is a good idea considering Tibet tour price is not cheap. Then how do I get my Tibet permit if my flight from London to Lhasa only has a stopover in Beijing about 3 hours?
In this case, your tour company in Lhasa has to contact their partner in Beijing to assign a tour guide to deliver the permit to you in person at airport in Beijing. You have to give your tour company detailed info of your London-Beijing and Beijing-Lhasa flight so that the assigned tour guide can find you at airport without any delay. Because you have to get your Tibet permit and then can get on board another domestic flight from Beijing to Lhasa, so you have to walk out of the airport Customs to meet the guide to pick up the permit firstly, it's important to keep the contact mobile phone number of the tour guide so that you have a chance to call him or her if you cannot find him or her immediately. Generally, the transportation fee and tour guide's service fee will be borne by the tourists.
