Foreign tourists banned from visiting Tibet until April 1

Published on : Thursday, February 21, 2019

Foreign travellers who want to travel to Tibet, are recommended to set foot in Tibet post April 1, as per Visit Tibet travel agency.  If the travel destinations include Kailash and Lake Mansarovar, tourists can plan the trip after April. 17. This is due to Tibet permits restriction policy.

 

 

There was no formal announcement of the closure by the government but travel agencies operating in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) are citing permit restrictions. The ban was confirmed by several sources including the online customer service portal of the Tibet Youth International Travel Service, and the staff at the Tibet Vista and Go to Tibet travel agencies.

 

 

The China government is tightening security ahead of the 60th anniversary of 1959’s abortive uprising against Beijing coming up on March 10.

 

 

The TAR has been closed off to tourists for at least one month, coinciding with the anniversary of the March 10 Uprising in 1959 and protests in 2008. In 2018, authorities closed the TAR to foreigners from February 10 to April 1 as per the Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet.

 

 

The foreigner travel ban for Tibet is an annual occurrence, but the occasion of the 60th anniversary is providing added significance.
