Can I get a Laos visa at the airport?

Yes. It is possible to obtain a Laos visa on arrival at most international airports and land borders in Laos. However, it is important to check whether your nationality is eligible for a visa on arrival and the specific requirements for the visa application, such as the acceptable forms of payment and required documentation.

To obtain a Laos visa successfully, travelers must have the following documents and information on hand for a successful application process:

  • Passport - it must be valid and valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry into Laos. You must scan the information page of your passport.
  • The passport must have at least 2 blank pages.
  • Proof of accommodation - a hotel booking confirmation is adequate, but if you want to stay with relatives or friends, a letter of invitation from them is required.
  • Digital passport photo - The photo must be more than three months old.
  • Travel itinerary
  • Proof of legal residence – You do not need this unless you want to apply from a nation other than your own.
  • Ticket for the return flight

Additionally, it is worth noting that the visa on arrival process can be time-consuming and may involve long queues, especially during peak travel periods. Therefore, to apply for a Laos e-visa, travelers can complete the application form at Global Visa Services by providing extra documents and paying the e-visa fees. In 3 business days, your e-visa application will be processed and sent to your email box.
