How much time can a Canadian citizen stay in Laos?

If you have a Canadian passport and a Laos eVisa, you can stay in the nation for up to 30 days.

A Laos online visa is valid for 60 days if accepted. You can enter the nation with your eVisa on any day throughout the validity term. The 30-day period begins on the date you enter Laos.

If you are planning to stay in Laos for longer than the maximum length of stay, you will need to apply for an extension of your visa. You can apply for an extension of your visa at the Immigration Department in Vientiane or at the Immigration Division Office in the province where you are staying.

Instead of standing in line at the embassy or consulate, Canadian citizens with valid passports can apply for this  type of visa and go to Laos for pleasure and tourism. Filling out the e-Visa application form and paying the visa fee with a credit/debit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express, PayPal) or wire transfer to the Bank of Cyprus are the two ways to do this. 

Upon arrival, travelers are advised to provide the necessary paperwork, including a valid visa printout and a passport and identity card. At the border checkpoint, the immigration officer will thoroughly look into their eligibility. Even with a valid Laos visa, Canadian citizens risk having their immigration denied if they fail to bring the necessary paperwork.
