Flight to Tibet no night in China?

Flight to Tibet: no night in China?

Are you planning a trip to Tibet? If so, you might wonder about the Tibet Travel Permit and its requirements. One common question travelers have is about flights to Tibet and whether they involve a layover in China overnight. Don't worry; we're here to help make your journey as smooth as possible!

Travelers must obtain the Tibet Travel Permit to fly to Tibet from other cities in China. As a result, they will need to spend a night in a hotel in one of the Chinese cities to obtain the original permit.

Tibet Travelers would like to kindly ask Travelers to stay overnight in a Chinese city where Tibet Travelers travel agency can send the Tibet Travel Permit to the hotel. Flying to Tibet from China with the original Tibet Travel Permit is possible.

We've been getting lots of questions from our fellow travelers, and one of the most frequently asked is: Is it necessary to spend a night in other cities in China before heading to the Tibet Autonomous Region? 

We are obtaining the Tibet Travel Permit without requiring an overnight stay in another Chinese city.

We did some digging and discovered an excellent way for Travelers to get to Tibet in just one day from their home country, with only 2-3 flights and no overnight stays in other Chinese cities. 

Our partners from other cities in China will bring the Tibet Travel Permit to our wonderful travelers at the airport in their city.  The cost for transportation to the airport and delivery of the permit to our travelers in that airport in China is approximately 100 USD, according to our partners.
