The Tibet Tourism Bureau has announced that NO TRAVEL PERMIT will be issued for travel in Tibet between June 18 and 23, 2016 for foreigner nationalities. This only affects travel for this short 6 day period and does not affect travel before or after these dates. It also does not affect fir Indian passport holders. This means that all foreigners will have to be out of Tibet by June 17. Travelers can then enter Tibet again starting June 24. Like usual, no reason has been given for this short 6 day closure.
