Can I use a Laos e-Visa to enter other countries in the region?

No, the Laos e-Visa is solely valid for admission into Laos and cannot be used to access other countries in the region. An e-visa is a document that allows foreign nationals to enter Laos for travel, business, or other reasons, but it is not accepted as a legitimate travel document by other nations.

Each nation has its unique visa requirements and application processes. If you intend to visit other nations in the area, you must obtain the necessary visas or other travel authorizations. To ensure you have the proper documentation and prevent any potential problems or delays at border crossings, it is vital to check the visa requirements of each nation you plan to visit well in advance of your trip.

In order to receive a Laos visa, applicants must also submit the following documents:

  • 1 passport scan per applicant (you may photograph the biographical page of the passport). The validity of this passport must extend at least six months beyond the scheduled date of arrival in Laos. Dual nationals should apply with the same passport they would use for their travel to Laos.
  • At least two blank sheets must be available for stamping.
  • 01 image of a person in any size you have (the filename is your full name). As recently as feasible should have been shot before the photo.
