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: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
