However, Chinese citizens who don't mind standing in line at the airport can apply for a visa on arrival at one of Laos' entrance points.

Travelers traveling in Laos with an authorized Tourist eVisa for Laos can generally enter through a particular fast line.

While obtaining a visa on arrival is feasible, the electronic visa saves time upon arrival. A Chinese citizen's electronic application for a Laos visa is generally accepted within three working days or less.
