Foreign people’s Tibet Tour Guidelines
Tibet Tour Guidelines-In order to fully enjoy your Tibet tour, firstly you will need to read and sign the following agreement before we issue your Tibet Travel Permit.
- Diplomats, journalists, immigrants from Tibet and anyone who involved in the Free Tibet organization or related activities cannot apply for Tibet Travel Permit.
- Foreign tourists traveling to Tibet must not participate in any activity that is harmful to the peace and prosperity of Tibet. You must not take any action that damages the Tibetan way of life or cultural heritage. You will be responsible and accountable for your actions while in Tibet. In restricted areas, photography of monasteries, temples and Military Guards etc. is strictly forbidden.
- The Tibet Travel Permit can only be used for tours in the Lhasa-Shigatse area. Independent travel is not permitted in Tibet and traveling outside of Lhasa-Shigatse without the proper permit is illegal. On signing this agreement, you need to acknowledge this situation and accept any subsequent responsibility.
- Some parts of Tibet remain closed to foreigners and even for Chinese citizens. All visitors are expected to follow local rules and regulations. When travelling outside of Lhasa, please check with your travel agency to ensure you have the correct and up-to-date policies and information for the destinations you plan to visit.
- Please ensure that you have a valid Chinese visa for the duration of your stay in Tibet. It is impossible to extend your Chinese visa while in Tibet. We are not responsible for any issues related to Chinese visa.
