Do Singaporeans need visa to Laos?

Yes, Singaporean citizens require a visa to enter Laos. Since Singaporean passport holders are on the exemption list for a visa to Laos within 30 days. Therefore:

  • If you stay in Laos for less than 30 days, a visa to Laos is not required. 
  • If you stay in Laos for more than 30 days, a visa to Laos is required. 

Prior to travel, Singaporeans must submit certain documentation in order to apply for a Laos e visa. To speed up the process and prevent errors, it is ideal to have these documents available when beginning the application: 

  • A recent passport-sized color photograph of the applicant that complies with the e-visa photo criteria
  • Scan of your passport's main page - the scan must be correct and include all of the applicant's information.
  • A Singapore passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of travel and has at least 2 blank pages. 
  • A valid email address
  • A payment mechanism for the visa processing fee, such as a credit card, debit card, Visa, Amex, Mastercard, or Paypal.

Once the visa is issued, it allows Singaporeans to stay in Laos for a specific period, usually up to 30 days or longer, depending on the type of visa obtained. It is essential to note that overstaying the permitted duration without proper authorization can result in fines or other penalties. Therefore, Singaporean travelers should ensure they meet all the Laos visa requirements to avoid any inconveniences during their visit. By obtaining the necessary visa in advance, Singaporeans can enjoy their trip to Laos, exploring its captivating landscapes, cultural heritage, and warm hospitality.
