How To Get The Tibet Travel Permit or Tibet Entry Permit? Obtaining a Tibet Entry Permit requires a booking tour through a travel agency in Tibet. By traveling as a group accompanied by a tour guide and driver, you can get your permit with a travel agency’s help with your valid passport and Chinese Visa. (This means that Independent travelers are not allowed to visit Tibet.) We will apply for packaged Permits (including TTB Permits and other necessary permits) for you to have a worry-free tour in Tibet. It usually takes about 15~20 days to obtain the permit (apply, wait for approval, and receive the permit). Tibet focus travel & tours will give free permits for all travelers worldwide.
