Hi Montana,
When we went to China we asked the travel agent attached to our small hotel for help and they organised travel documents for us as well as a "tour" for us. I tink the only time anyone asked to see our travel docs was when we booked our ticket from Xian to Lhasa and we never had return tickets so could have stayed as long as we liked. As it was my husband suffered from the altitude so we stayed one day less than intended.

This was in 2008 though so it might have changed.

In response to: Msg #155748 What do you want to know? And what can I help you?
I have never visited Tibet, but I have a lot of friends who have gone there.
In my opinion, it is better to go to Lhasa by train, which can avoid acute altitude stress. Of course it depends on your duration in China. If you don't have time, you can go there directly by flight.
And ..... Ok, I think you need to ask me questions before my balabala.

Welcome to China. Reply to this

In order to mark a trip to Tibet, all foreign travelers needs to have a Tibet travel permit as well as a valid passport and visa. Visa can easily be obtained from Chinese consulate in your country. Reply to this

Do all your research as much as you can, Tibet is a lovely place and I have gone there. But I want to suggest you to have a traveler magazine like Outlook Traveller, which will help you a lot to understand that place. Reply to this
