1. Types of Laos e-Visa for Croatian citizens

The Laos e-visa, also known as an approval letter, is an electronic version of the tourist visa that allows Croatian nationals to enter and remain in Laos for up to 30 days for tourism purposes.

The visa holder needs to remember that this is a one-time entry visa for tourism purposes. Citizens of Croatia who have left the country and wish to return must apply for readmission.

To help travelers save time, the Laos eVisa was developed. But at the moment, Croatian citizens can still enter Laos by applying for a regular visa at the airport. However, the process to obtain a traditional visa takes more time and the applicant must wait to be processed at the airport than Laos online visa (e-Visa). 

2. Laos e-Visa Requirements for Croatian Citizens

Citizens of Croatia who are interested in traveling to Laos are required to apply for an electronic visa or a permission letter to lawfully enter the country. However, before applying, citizens of Croatia need to obtain the following requirements for a Laos e-Visa:
