China/Tibet Travel Visas - Please note that visas for China are the responsibility of the individual traveler. The visa requirements for your trip vary depending on where you are from and where you are going. For the most up to date information please check your government’s foreign ministry website or with you travel agent as rules do change. It is important that you check for yourself. For most travelers there will probably have an embassy and consulate in the country that you live in.
China visa - You will need to organize a China visa yourselves before your trip commences. As Tibet is still a sensitive area for travel we suggest you refrain from listing Tibet as one of the places you are going to visit as your application for a visa will be denied. We suggest you list the areas of Beijing and Xi’an, when filling in your application. For entry to Tibet, we will arrange for a Tibet Permit for the group as a whole.
Nepal Visa - Visas are available at the Nepal border town of Kodari – USD25 in USD cash + 1 photo. It is your responsibility to have the correct travel documentation.
