    Hi Yuris,
    According to the current policies in Tibet, nowdays Tibet Tourist Bureau only issues permit for group which is more than 4 persons with same nationality. So it will be most unlikely to get permit if you don't have enough same-nationality travel mates go with you. I suggest you postpone your trip to next year when situation gets better.
