Please note that visas for China are the responsibility of the individual traveler. The visa requirements for your trip vary, depending on where you are from and where you are going. For the most up to date information please check your government's foreign ministry website or with you travel agent. Rules do change and it is important that you check for yourself. For most travelers there is probably a Chinese embassy or consulate in the country where you live. As Tibet is still a sensitive area for travel we suggest you refrain from listing Tibet as one of the places you are going to visit as your application for a visa will be denied. We suggest you list the areas of Beijing, Xi'an, Shanghai when filling in your application. For entry to Tibet, Discovery Adventures will arrange for a Tibet Permit for the group as a whole.
