The Tibet autonomous region will be open for tourism to foreigners in the Chinese mainland and those from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao starting May 10. 

The region was closed off to international travelers for the past 15 months due to COVID-19.

To enter, travelers must show proof of a Chinese work certificate 28 days before entering and a negative nucleid acid test seven days before departure. 

If you’re interested in visiting the region, you’ll have to book with a travel agency and apply for a Tibet Entry Permit. The permit usually takes three to seven days to process and requires a valid passport, a scanned copy of your visa and a scanned copy of your certificate of employment. 

Here’s a Tibet trip below with multiple dates from now until October:
