Visa & Permits for travellong Tibet/ Kailash 

Enter Tibet from Mainland China: - Foreign travelers, who want to visit in Tibet through China, need Chinese visa in their passport and Tibet traveller permit. To enter Tibet from any part of mainland China except Hong Kong and Macao, a Chinese visa is necessary. Your Chinese visa should be in your passport while applying Tibetan permit. Touch Kailash Travels and tour need scan passport copy and Chinese visa scan copy for processing. Chinese visa is best to obtain at your home country. Entering Tibet from Nepal is with different process.

Please note: While entering China it is best to have a visa covering the expected duration of stay. Getting extensions inside China can involve delays and other difficulties. You need to apply for a double- or multiple entry visa when you need to leave and re-enter mainland China. Please note that, even when you leave for Hong Kong or Macao from mainland China, you still need to have a double or multiple entry visa.

Travel to Tibet through Nepal: - If you make entry into Tibet from Kathmandu, Nepal, you do not need any Chinese visa but you need Tibetan permit which will be issued from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu. The Tibetan visa you get in Kathmandu is a "group visa". A "group visa" is not entered in travelers passports but is a separate sheet of paper issued in duplicate by the Chinese consulate in Kathmandu, listing all members of the group. It usually allows a stay up to your package days or depends on the situation of Chinese immigration policy. A "group" may be any number of travelers, and may be just one traveler. One or more travelers entering Tibet together with others may wish to have their own separate group visa so they are able to separate from the others. Obtaining a group visa requires at least two days in Kathmandu and all the procedure is by Touch Kailash Travels and Tours which is including in your Tibet Tour package.

Tibet Permit / Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) Permit

Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) Permits are necessary to make entry to Lhasa or any other part of the Tibetan Autonomous Region, and are obtainable through Touch Kailash Travels & Tours as part of arrangement for secured travel. You just need to send your passport copy by scan. Example of Tibet, Kailash Travel visa


Who can get Tibet Travel Permit and who can’t

All kinds of people can get Tibet permit through a travel agency except diplomats, journalists, and government (who is holding official passports) officials who should travel to Tibet under the arrangement by the Foreign Affairs Office of Tibet Government. Travelers are also allowed to enter Mainland China with Tibet permit but immediately have to apply Chinese new visa from Chinese immigration.

These are required to visit closed areas - much of the Tibetan Autonomous Region outside the Lhasa prefecture-level district, and scattered counties elsewhere. They are usually only obtainable through tour operators, for tours by four-wheel-drive car. Permits to visit places that are not declared open are known as Aliens Travel Permits, or PSBs. They are issued by the police (Public Security Bureau, "PSB"). A single permit is normally issued to all the people who are traveling together, the permit naming just one of them and stating how many others are accompanying him; the passports, or at least photocopies of passports and visas, of all persons traveling must be presented in order to obtain a permit.

Note:

Generally it takes 1 week to get the Tibet permit after you supply the full necessary documents. After having a permit from TTB, Touch Kailash Travel could buy you the air tickets and manage package tour to Tibet.

The following details of the travelers are required for Permit:

Name, Nationality, Passport number, Sex, Date of Birth and Occupation details for Indian passport holder 
Passport scan copy for other than Indian passport holder

Only the guide could hold the permit after you arrive in Tibet. You are not allowed to bring with it and travel to anywhere you want because except Lhasa you need another permit named as "Aliens Permit". Otherwise if you are stopped by the police you will be sent out of Tibet or have trouble politically and economically. Furthermore, the travel agency which helped to get you the permit will also be in trouble.

Recommendations for Yatra

Trip insurance is important documents. Touch Kailash Travels and tours do not need your insurance policy for permit and visa confirmation. it is only for your secure and immergency. make sure your insurance cover travelling up to 5600 miter altitude and cover Emmergency rescue and Medical bills.  

Oxygen level is less at higher altitudes. The inclement weather and high altitude induces certain illness generally not encountered over the plains. Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Tranquilizers, sleeping dose and strong anti-biotic must be avoided. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments. The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and follows the following rules:

  • Rest.
  • Relax-do not exert, be excited.
  • Reduce talking.
  • Walk slowly – adopt one third of your speed and space.
  • Keep your load light.
  • Walk for 15 minutes and rest for 5 minutes.
  • Whenever you feel uncomfortable, just stop; rest and relax.
  • Ignore the sudden outbursts of fellow pilgrims and avoid arguments.
  • Observe silence with smile.
  • Never go too high and too fast.
  • Consume plenty of liquids; never proceed with an empty stomach.
  • Chant a prayer or visualize everything around to suit your pleasant thoughts or put on the earphones and listen to your favourite music, bhajans, chanting etc.
  • Be careful not to catch a cold. It is better to be over clothed than under protected. En-route avoids taking bath or drinking water from Lake Streams or rivers, as your system is not conditioned for this.
  • Keep your boots/Ked inside tent. Protect yourself against dust and direct sunshine during the long stretches of driving. Face, feet and hands must be well protected.
  • The uneven ground, steep slope and slushy banks are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sight seeing together.
  • Always listen to your guide or the one with experience. Never leave the group.
  • On this trip, over exertion is to be avoided and drinking plenty of fluids is recommendable. During winter, heavy warm clothing is a must.

 

  • Kindly consult your doctor and get yourself examined for this yatra
