Does Laos require a PCR test?

International visitors to Laos, when applying for a tourist e-Visa, do not require a PCR test. 

International visitors can apply for a Laos visa online from anywhere at any time as long as they meet the following requirements:

  • The passports should be valid for at least 06 months from the intended arrival date in Laos and have at least two pages to get the stamp.
  • A scan of the passport’s biographical page.
  • A current email address is required to receive your e-Visa.
  • The photograph should be taken as recently as possible (within the last 06 months).

Once international visitors make sure that they prepare enough required documents above, they can begin the visa application process. 

We always recommend you buy Travel Insurance. Because it both gives you many benefits and an advantageous condition to apply for a Laos visa. Your application will be easily approved by the Lao government as a result.
