2023 China Visa Update

We recommend starting the visa process 3 months in advance of your intended entry date to Tibet.

Alternative: Online visa application is available for specific cases (consult us, minimum 2 people, not valid for most trips to Mt. Kailash).

Due to the new regulations governing visa issuance at Chinese consulates worldwide, it is necessary to schedule an online appointment and physically visit the corresponding visa center. Please note that in many cases, appointments are being scheduled for 2-4 weeks later.

Remember that we need 2-4 weeks from the date your visa is issued to process your entry permits to Tibet, so it’s best not to leave the visa process until the last moment.

To travel to Tibet, in addition to the necessary permits to enter Tibet, a Chinese visa is required:

Traveling to Tibet via Nepal: There is still no Kathmandu – Lhasa flight. Entry must be done overland in groups of at least 4 people or by making a stopover in China. The entire group must leave the country together, either on the same flight or by returning to Nepal overland.

Traveling to Tibet via China: The visa must be applied for in the country of origin, providing all the required documentation. Once the visa is obtained, the entry permits to Tibet are processed. Consult us to see if it would be possible to apply online in your case (minimum 2 people).

Tibet awaits you!

Dear friends & partners – Tashi delek!

We’re expecting that borders will be open to international tourists anytime this year. China lifted all pandemic restrictions to enter the country on January 8th (a 48h negative PCR is needed only) and will gradually resume the entry and exit of passengers at land ports too. Tourist VISA still not being issued, hopefully it will change in the following months. At the moment, only China residents are allowed to visit Tibet.

To all our new & old partners; tour operators, travel agencies and tour & expedition leaders around the world: We are ready to welcome you in Lhasa again! Please, contact us anytime to plan the current and 2024 seasons.

We celebrate Losar (Tibetan New Year) on February 21st and all the team will be on holiday for a couple of weeks. We plan to start announcing our group departures in March, including our most requested & highest ranked trips during the Saga Dawa Festival 2023 (bookings open).

Contact us now if you are interested in a particular itinerary but willing to join a group. Remember we can always organize a bespoke tour for you, your family & friends.

Thank you for your support during these terrible 3 years. We start from scratch with more desire than ever.

All our best wishes to you and your families,
The Tibetan Guide Team
