Tibet Travel Permit

How to get the Tibet Travel Permit?

Great Wall Adventure Club can assist you to obtain the Tibet Travel Permit, a necessary document to allow you to tour Tibet. To get a permit you should submit the following documents and mention the following information to us.

Full name | Gender | Date of birth | Passport number | Nationality

All exactly the same as on your passport. And you need to tell us your occupation because journalists and people that could be involved in political matters could be revoked (they need more complicated procedure to get a permit). You need to apply for the travel permit at least 20 days prior to your entry date.

Please note that if you do not book any tour from a licensed agent, we can not help you get the permits. No travel agency can provide "permit-only" service. A Must services include transfers and guide.


  1. All kinds of people can get Tibet travel permit through a travel agency except diplomats, journalists, and senior government officials who should travel to Tibet under the arrangement by the Foreign Affairs Office of Tibet Government.
  2. After having a permit, we could continue the following operation for your amazing tour in Tibet.
  3. Only the guide could hold the permit after you establish yourself on Tibetan land. You are not allowed to bring with it and travel to anywhere you want because except Lhasa you need another permit named as "Aliens’ Permit".

How much is the application?

Great Wall Adventure Club will apply on your behalf at no cost to you once we have the honor to arrange the travel for you. This is our complimentary service that will save you significant amount of time and hassle. Please check the sample of the permit below. 

Other documents

Other documents are the same as you travel to other places of China - you need hold a valid passport with valid visa (issued by the Chinese Embassy). If you are coming to Lhasa from Kathmandu, you'd better get a China visa from Kathmandu because no matter you've already got the visa in your country or not, you must get a visa in Kathmandu, which is regulated in an official memo between China and Nepal.  

Frontier Pass

Frontier Pass is the permit for foreign tourists who go to Mount Everest or Nepal via Zhangmu Border and may be checked at Lhasa airport if taking a flight from Lhasa to Nepal. It takes about 1 to 1.5 hours to obtain the Frontier Pass via Armed Police Tibet Frontier Corps in Lhasa.

Alien�s Travel Permit

The last one is Aliens' Travel Permit, which is for tourists to reach the Everest Base Camp. Issued by the Public Security Bureau, the Aliens' Travel Permit can be obtained at the Foreign Affairs Office either in Lhasa or in Shigatse. The application procedure just takes about 1 to 1.5 hours.
