I'm interested in traveling to Tibet. I live in shanghai and was looking to go this summer. Have not done too much research since there was arestriction.

I also have a diplomatic passport and my visa is in it. We were told we could not travel to Tibet on this passport? is this still the case? If so I do have a tourist passport but no Chinese Visa.

will look at your website and see what type of tours you offer and what the cost would be for 3-4 people. Thank you.

Dear Christiana,

Thank you for contacting us. We'd love to help you plan this trip but unfortunetely, as you already knew, we're not able to get Tibet permit for you if you're holding  a diplomatic passport / visa. 

I don't know if there's way that you can get another Chinese Visa with your regular passport, a tourist visa, business visa or even working permit would be fine.

Please feel free to contact us again (Sales@WindhorseTour.com) if you need any further assistance from our side!

Kind Regards,
