Updated on April 24, 2017: Do I have to find Malaysian travelling companions to travel Tibet? In my group, do we have to have the same nationality? Some travelers from Malaysia still ask this question. However since 2 years ago, the Tibet travel permits restriction on the same nationality is already cancelled. Now different foreign nationality travelers can travel together in Tibet. This is a favorable policy so far in Tibet tourism. We wish more and more travelers can travel together, sharing the group tour cost.
