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?

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.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
