China Visa and Tibet Travel Permit

Update: Nov. 21st, 2013

China Visa

As we all known, the visa plays as our international identity card in our international trip. Though tourists planning to travel to most regions in China from certain countries (such as Singapore) are visa-free, the China Visa is necessary for foreign tourists planning to travel to Tibet for it is a required document for the application of the Tibet Travel Permit.

Obtain China Visa before Tibet Tour – Where to Submit the Application

China has launched China Embassy in numerous regions/cities in different countries. Foreign tourists planning to travel to China could apply for the China Visa from the China Embassy situated in/near your city. For tourists willing to make a Tibet tour via domestic cities in China, China Visa issued by any China Embassy would be regarded as valid.

It should be noted that foreign tourists planning to travel to Tibet via Nepal could only apply for the required China Visa from the China Embassy in Kathmandu, and China Visa issued by the China Embassy in other cities will be regarded as invalid. Therefore, tourists planning to enter into Tibet from Kathmandu are sincerely suggested to get to Kathmandu few days in advance. Generally, it takes at least 3 work days to get the China Visa after you submit your application.
