Here is the latest Tibet travel permits news updated on September 12, 2017. The Lhasa local Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) had announced an unofficial notice to all travel agencies that foreign travelers can not travel in Tibet between Oct.18 and Oct.28 in 2017. This temporal closure of Tibet is due to the upcoming Beijing GOV meeting-the 19th national party congress meeting. So Tibet faces another sensitive travel time again. This is fairly normal tour ban because of the sensitive political climate. Nobody can be sure whether there is additional closure announcement or not. For a Tibet tour, please contact us for the latest situation. However, in order to book any tour of Tibet, you need to book no later than 20 days before the actual arrival date. You need to guarantee the entry permits to Tibet before booking a tour before or after arrival.
