I don't think you're allowed to work or study there. It is difficult to even get a tourist visa. They are extremely strict about who goes into the country. There was a time when any foreigner found there was killed, so I don't think they are keen on foreigners coming to stay.

As far as I know you can only get a tourist visa if you visit as part of an organised group. I would think it would be difficult to work there.

Yeah I was acting in a drama for CCTV and they "suggested" that I leave Tibet while we where filming (but that was right after the 08 riots).

I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed since most foreigners can't go alone and they need to be with a group. If your studying or working it would be a big 'no no' since people who study or work are on their own a lot. That's one of the more isolated places in China.

No, legally a foreiger is not allowed to work in Tibet, really don;'t know why you would want to study there, there isn't any educational facility worth while in this part of China in less you are studying buddism

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
