Frequently Asked Questions about China Tibet Yangtze Tour

  • 1. What are the Required Travel Documents for a China Tibet Yangtze Tour?

    Traveling to China and Tibet together means that you will need to have the right documents to travel into the country. The first thing you will need is your Chinese Entry Visa, without which none of this would be possible.

    China does not have a Visa on Arrival policy, so you will need to apply for your visa from an Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, which usually takes around three working days to process.

    You will need to have a valid passport, two passport-sized photos, the completed application form, proof of onward travel out of China, proof of your hotel booking in China, and the relevant fee. Some nationals also have to provide proof of ability to fund their stay in China. It is also essential that you do not mention Tibet in your visa application itinerary, as this can cause problems.

    Once you have the visa for China, then you can book the tour in Tibet and we can make the application for the Tibet Travel Permit. Required for entering and travelling in Tibet, the Tibet Travel Permit is the most essential document for all Tibet tours, as you cannot even board the train or flight to Lhasa without it.

    Moreover, it cannot be applied for in person, and only travelers with a pre-booked tour with a registered tour operator can obtain one. Once your Tibet tour is booked, we will use scanned copies of your passport and visa to make the application on your behalf.

    The processing of Tibet Travel Permit application can take up to 20 days, but often takes less time than that, and once we have received the permit from the Tibet Tourism Bureau in Lhasa we will forward it to your hotel in China.
