Where to get my Tibet permit

About 5-7 days before the trip, Tibet (entry) permit will be issued to your Tibet tour operator. Then, your tour operator will send you the permit depending on how you enter Lhasa.

If you fly from a Chinese city (Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and etc), your tour operator will courier the original permit to your booked hotel in Beijing, Shanghai or Chengdu where you take flight to Lhasa. The courier takes at most 3 days; generally, you can get the permit at the reception upon check-in, so please tell your tour operator the right name and address including phone number of the hotel you book. The permit will be checked at the airport before you get your boarding pass to Lhasa. You have to give the original permit to your guide who will pick you up at the airport in Lhasa.

If you take train into Lhasa from a Chinese city, your tour operator will just send the scan copy of permit by email to you. You just need to print it out, either in color or black and white, a printout of permit is sufficient for you for a train ride to Lhasa. The printed permit will be checked before boarding, after boarding and even when get out of Lhasa train station. You have to give the printed permit to your guide who will pick you up at train station in Lhasa.   

If you enter by overland or flight from Kathmandu to Tibet, your Tibet tour operator does not have to send you permit by courier or email. Your tour guide from the company will pick you up at Zhangmu border or at airport in Lhasa with the original permit. For more details, please refer to our page of Tibet permit from Nepal.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Gene Raymond Kinne,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at BTT. For the 7 Days Lhasa to Kathmandu Tour via Everest Base Camp, there will not be much walking daily as you will be driven to each place and dropped off there. And please no worry about your age, ha-ha… we had clients who were 83 years old taking this tour before without problem, and I think you will be ok too. best regards to you.

Dear Mr. Meena Vyas,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at BTT. We will have 15 days Tibet Mount Kailash Trekking plus Mt. Everest Base Camp on 15th Oct. and I am sure you will have enough time to apply your China visa. Normally people will arrive in Lhasa Gongga airport(LXA), then our guide will be there to meet people and transfer to downtown with 3 times daily. There will be 3days for trekking around Kailash included, so you will have enough trekking if you will take this tour. I will send you more details by email. Best wishes to you.
