Name Tibet Travel Situation in 2013
According to a local Tibet travel agency, Tibet travel org, Tibet permit/visa is a must for non-Chinese to visit Tibet. The Tibet Travel Situation in 2013 is much positive compared with the Tibet permit policy in 2012 that required foreign travelers to travel in a group with at least five tourists from the same country, according to Ms. Catherine, the manager of the travel agency.
Since May of 2012, Tibet permit was only issued for Tibet tour groups meeting the above requirements, which obstructed many solo travelers’ way to Tibet. Fortunately, the restriction on group size and nationality has been removed since the end of this March.
By the afternoon of April 1st, 2013, Tibettour org has obtained several Tibet permits for travelers travelling to Tibet in April.
