How to get to Laos from Singapore?

To reach Laos from Singapore, the most convenient option is air travel since there are no direct land or sea connections available between the two countries. Multiple airlines offer flights connecting Singapore to Laos, primarily to Vientiane, the capital city. The primary gateway to Laos is Wattay International Airport, situated in Vientiane. There are several airlines that provide flights between Singapore and Vientiane, including full-service and low-cost options. Depending on the airline and any required layovers, the flight lasts approximately 3 to 4 hours. 

Prior to traveling to Laos, visitors are required to apply for a Laos visa. Nowadays, applicants can complete their online Laos visa application form at any time and from any location as long as they have an Internet connection and electrical equipment to access the online Laos visa application. 

Lao e-Visas can be issued in 3 business days if all information given by applicants fits the criteria and is recognized by Lao government authorities. Otherwise, the processing time may be extended.
