Q: How much does it cost to get the Tibet Entry Permit?

I understand you have to pay the travel agency service fees, but there is also apparently a government charge to pay.

How much are both?

I have seen many different prices on Internet from nothing (all the fees are included in a travel agency package) to RMB 800.

You'd better check with various travel agencies and compare their price.

I've been reading up on Tibet entry... in order to go, you have to go with a tour/guide. You aren't allowed in otherwise. Most of the travel agencies will apply and get your visa for you included in the price of the tour.

if you have a Chinese Id card then you can go as freely as you want. I just don't understand how so many people have traveled to Tibet on a bicycle and have not been stopped by police to be checked. They even stopped giving personal passes to get into Tibet now. Do they sneak in on a bus or what?

DrMonkey:

Sneaking on a bus... When you are 100km from the border, you'll be often reminded to have a pass or to GTFO. That was in 2011, just traveling by foot and bus. The regulations change often.

Someone suggested to me (on a forum??) that it's much easier to get into T!bet from other countries, such as Nepal or India. I haven't checked the validity of this claim, but might be worth looking at.

Back in the day, the Indian/China border was 2 bored guys playing cards and a fence in the middle of nowhere. Might have changed since.

Other borders might not have big checkpoints (I don't know), but I'd expect the paths to be quite rocky.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
