An important meeting was held today by the Tibet Tourism Bureau, the Tibet Public Security Bureau and some other relevant authorities. All bosses or managers of tour agents or tour operator in Tibet attended the meeting.
Due to the notorious unrest happened in Lhasa in March, 2008, after that, Tibet is generally closed for the non-Chinese tourists in each March in case any damage took place again. And coincidently, next May comes with an important moment of 60 anniversary of Peace Liberation in Tibet Autonomous Region, in order to prevent unnecessary trouble and to make sure the anniversary goes smoothly, authorities from relevant government departments reached preliminary agreement that they will strengthen cooperation between each other and strengthen control and supervision on the application and approval of Tibet Travel Permit, particularly for those who want to travel to Tibet from March to May.
This tentative agreement will make Tibet travel in 2011 more difficult, particularly for those who want to travel to Tibet in April or May. But this does not mean that it is impossible to travel to Tibet in next April and May, yet based on our years of operation experience, Budget Tibet Tour suggests those who want to travel during this period of time better postpone your Tibet tour to June.

Dear Mr. To***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
