Question: Your questions about our tour package?:, I want to book a trip between 25 Apr. (Arrival) and 29 Apr.(leaving date) in Tibet for two person, but I don't know whether you provide us the entry permit in Tibet. I heard from Embassy that only the travel agency can do it for us, because this is given by the local authority in Tibet. Myself and my husband have the German and French passports. We will order the normal travel visa of China, does it sufficient for Tibet? Any particular paper we have to prepare? Do you want to customize the tour? if yes please tell us your plan and request:,Do you need us book hotel or flight/train? if yes please tell us:

Thank you for your email to Chinatour.Net

Yes, we will apply for Tibet Permit for you. You need to send photo of your passport and visa, and your flight information to us. And prepayment is required.

By the way, can you read and write Chinese?

Hi Suraj,


We have NO GROUP Tours available in Lhasa and according to your request, you should have at least 8 Days 7 Nights for such a tour and if you are just one person, it costs too much I think.

Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,What information must we provide for the visa? I am staying in Huaihua City until July 17 and will be travelling after that. Once I book the trip, how will I pick up my visa,What are the differences in price for 3 and 4 star

For the visa, I think you mean the Tibet Travel Permit, right? For applying TTP to entering Tibet, you have to provide us scanned photocopy of your Passport and your Chinese Visa, if your Chinese visa is not a tourist (L) type, you have to provide your working ID card too.

After we get the Tibet Travel Permit, we can send it to you to any address that convenient for you in China.

For Hotels, we recommend you stay in a 4 star hotel, because in Lhasa and 3 star hotel is not as good as in other cities.

And price for 4 star hotel package is RMB 6,270 Per Person.

So please have a look and reply us if you have any questions
