How to get to Laos from the UK with an e visa?

Citizens of the United Kingdom can travel to Laos with an authorized eVisa. If they want to go to the country by plane, they should be aware that the eVisa is only valid at the following international airports:

  • Wattay-VTE-Vientiane-Vientiane
  • Luang Prabang-LPQ-Luang Prabang-Luang Prabang
  • Pakse - PKZ- Champasak- Champasak
  • Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge I (Vientiane) (from Thailand)
  • Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge II (Savannakhet ) ( from Thailand)
  • Thai-Lao Frienship Bridge IV (Bokeo Province) (from Thailand)
  • Boten International Checkpoint (Luang Namtha Province) (from China)
  • Boten Railway Station (Luang Namtha Province) (from China)

Travelers from the United Kingdom should plan their trip through Laos by using the permitted border crossings at Boten International Checkpoint and the Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge.

They can proceed directly to the passport controls for eVisa holders upon arrival, where they will present their UK passport and authorization letter for scrutiny before being allowed to enter the country.

Validity of the Laos electronic visa for UK citizens

Britons must not overstay their allotted 30-day stay in Laos, which is the maximum permissible stay in the nation with an electronic visa.

However, if they need to extend their stay, they can do so at the Immigration Office in the country's capital (Vientiane) or with approved travel agents.
