Tibet Entrance permit

How do I apply for this??? The chinese visa application centre here in melbourne are not very helpful. If you could let me know, that would be great.

I.e. a phone number, fax number or an email address would be wonderful.

thanks for your help

1. Re: Tibet Entrance permit

Foreign tourists are allowed into Tibet only with a travel company. They know how to do very well. So the most important thing is to find a travel company. Tibet permit itself is not your first concern.

Like Oriental Red explained you have to buy a package in a travel company to get the permit. Usually it´s easier if you are touring with a group.
