Is it possible to change the purpose of my visit after entering Laos with a Laos e-Visa?

No, it is not possible to change the purpose of your visit after entering Laos with a Laos e-Visa. The e-Visa is issued for a specific purpose, either for tourism or business, and you must adhere to the purpose of your visa during your stay in Laos.

If you need to change the purpose of your visit, you will need to exit Laos and apply for a new visa that is appropriate for your intended purpose. For example, if you entered Laos with a tourist e-Visa but later decided to conduct business activities, you would need to exit Laos and apply for a business visa at the nearest Lao Embassy or Consulate.

When applying for a new visa, you will be required to provide some documentation that supports your new intended purpose and pay the relevant visa fees. The new visa application will be reviewed by Lao immigration authorities, and they will determine if you meet the eligibility requirements for the new visa.

It is essential to carefully plan your visit and ensure that you apply for the appropriate visa before entering Laos. Please contact us if you have any questions about the Laos e-Visa; we are happy to help you.
