As a professional travel agency, we will handle any case and any question raised by our clients. And lots of our customers often send emails to me to ask whether there is any age-limit on Tibet Travel Permit, and the answer is absolutely not. Then, they often ask other questions and I have made a summary about them.
1.When can I get my Tibet Travel Permit?
After receiving your basic personal information (a copy your passport, Chinese Visa and your occupation), we will send them to the Tibet Tourism Bureau to help you apply for your Tibet Travel Permit. And normally about 2-5 days, your Tibet Travel Permit will be issued and send to us. Then we will deliver it to your hotel or guesthouse in China.
We will deliver it to you as soon as possible. Please don’t be anxious during this time. Normally, the whole application takes about 15 days to get a Tibet Travel Permit.
2.When and where my Tibet Travel Permit will be checked?
This Tibet Travel Permit will be checked when you board a train or flight to Tibet. Even you choose to travel to Tibet from Sichuan by overland tour, you also need to bring your Tibet Travel Permit. It will be checked at the Tibet border from Sichuan.

3. How to preserve permit when my Tibet tour ends?
