Spot of bother with Tibet group visa chaning to Chinese, any help/advice gratefully received by simonwbooth on 6 April 2006 5:24am
 
Hi, we're in a spot of bother at the moment and would appreciate any help anyone can give us.

Similiar to the journey done on Himalaya, myself and my boyfriend entered Tibet from Nepal. You must have a group visa to do this and we were advised that when we got to another province of China, we had to go to the PSB and change the visa from a group to an individual visa.

We arrived in the Yunnan province on Saturday and are having great problems in changing the visa.

At the moment it looks like we will not be able to change the visa, will be told to leave the country asap and be fined a lot of money, several hundreds of pounds for the pleasure, even though we have done everything we have been told at every turn.

We have approached the UK embassy here and they can't really help us.

Does anyone have any experience of doing this or any advice at all?

We would really appreicate anything anyone can offer.

Cheers!

As with any expedition it is best if the persons in the party stay together unless there is need for one to get help for a seriously injured member of the group. I wouldn't bother trying to change the visa into indivdual ones.
