Q: Can I travel to Tibet for the purpose of passing through?

As the title implies, I want to travel to Tibet in order to pass through to Nepal. I am not going to stay in Lhasa more than a few days, just long enough for my girlfriend to get her Nepal Tourist Visa. We will then vacation in Nepal and return by the same route: back into Lhasa to catch the train home.

 

I am wondering if this will be possible since I am a foreigner who happens to look a lot like Brad Pitt.

You will need special permission as all foreigners do these days from the Entry-and-Exit folks at the PSB.   There is no "special passing through visa" for Tibet.  You may also be required to be part of a group - it will depend upon how the Entry-and-Exit folk view your request.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
