Tibet visa (Chinese Group Visa) from Kathmandu within 5 steps

Step one: Sending copy of your passport

Send the scan copy of your passport by email to your Tibet tour operator; this has to be done at least 15 days before the trip starts.


Step two: Get Tibet visa invitation

Your Tibet tour operator will go to Tibet Tourism Bureau to get the visa invitation letter for you; it takes about 3 working days. And then the letter will be sent by email to the visa agent in Kathmandu.


Step three: Fill out form for Chinese Group Visa with Tibet visa agent

You have to visit the visa agent in Kathmandu in person with a passport-size photocopy of yourself and fill out the Chinese Group Visa form. At the same time, you have to give your real passport to the visa agent and pay the visa application fee.

Step four: Submit application for Chinese Group Visa

The visa agent in Kathmandu will submit the group visa application form for you; this can be done between 10 AM till 2 PM from Monday till Friday;


Step five: Get visa from Tibet visa agent

The visa agent can pick up the visa only on each visa-working-day (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), at about 4 PM. That is to say, you’d better arrange to start your Tibet tour on each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Once you have your Chinese Group Visa, i.e., your Tibet visa, you can travel to this country and enjoy one of our tour packages for you and your friends or family today.

user portrait Ms. Ho*** from: When to get my Tibet permit

Hello, we are considering to travel in Tibet in summer. We are a family of 5, two adults and three kids, age 13(then), 10, 8. We are interested in the 10 days Mt. EBC & Namtso Lake Group tour. We are US citizens with valid 10-year Chinese multiple entry visa, which we have applied when we went to Beijing in 2019. We are currently living in South Korea.  


1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?  

2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?

Answered by Helen

Dear Ms. Ho***,

    Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
