Malaysia to Tibet visa


More and more Malaysians are traveling to Tibet every year for the fascinating tours of this unique region of China. Malaysia also has the same rules as every other country whose residents plan to tour Tibet. All foreign travelers must be part of an organized tour with a registered Tibet travel agency, which will secure the required permits, and provide a tour guide and vehicle. Foreign travelers are not allowed to tour Tibet without these. While being part of a group is not required, it is an advantage as it can seriously reduce the cost of the tour by sharing the costs of the vehicle and guide with several other tourists.

Chinese Visa and Tibet Travel Permit

Going from Malaysia to Tibet via China is one of the easiest and fastest routes. You will first need to apply for your Chinese Visa into China from the Chinese Embassy in Kuala Lumpur or the Chinese Consualte offices in Kuching, Penang and Kota Kinabalu. You should not put Tibet as the destination (to save more process time) on the visa, despite that being your final destination. You will also need to contact a registered Tibet travel agency to arrange your tour and Tibet travel permit. It is important to note that you need the Chinese visa FIRST, as the tour operator will not be able to secure your travel permit from the Tibet Tourism Bureau in Lhasa without the visa having been issued. And if you list Tibet as a location for your Chinese visa, they will ask for your Tibet travel permit. It takes around 2-3 weeks for your travel permit to Tibet to be processed, so you should start at least 6-8 weeks before you plan to travel.
