Can Dutch Citizens travel to Laos?

Yes, Dutch citizens can travel to Laos. However, you need to apply for a Laos visa. Currently, you can apply for a visa online through our website.

The Laos eVisa system makes visa applications from the Netherlands more accessible. It merely takes a few minutes to apply, and most Indians receive their approved visa by email within one to three business days.

Dutch passport holders who do not fulfill Laos’s eVisa standards require a different visa form. Religious, official, employment, and journalist visas are also available in Laos.

To be eligible for each type of visa, Dutch citizens must satisfy particular conditions. In each case, the circumstances and period of stay differ.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when traveling to Laos:

  • Laos' official currency is the kip. Euros may be exchanged for kip at the border or Laos banks.
  • Laos and the Netherlands have a 6-hour time difference. The Netherlands is 6 hours ahead of Laos.
  • Laos has a voltage of 220 volts. You will require a travel adaptor to use your electrical gadgets in Laos.
  • Although Lao is the official language of Laos, English is extensively used in tourist regions.
  • Laos is a generally secure nation. However, you should constantly be mindful of your surroundings and take measures against petty crime.
