Learn More: Tourist eVisa
LAOS IS OPEN: Laos has re-opened for tourism on May 9th, 2022.
The Laos Immigration Department has recently introduced a system that allows citizens from all nations the chance to obtain electronic visas instead of standard paper visas. This new system makes both the application process and the entry process a lot easier, since eVisa holders have a separate line when passing through customs. The eVisa application process is very simple and 100% online. Once the application is submitted and accepted, the applicant will receive the eVisa approval letter, which must be printed and shown to the immigration officers upon arrival. Yes, it’s that simple.
The Electronic Visa system is an online method of applying for visas from anywhere in the world. This new system means that travelers from eligible nations need not visit an embassy or mail in their passport for review. The online application is quick, simple, and can be done anywhere and at any time. Payment is made online at the time of the application.

The Laos Tourist eVisa allows applicants only one Single Entry and they can remain in the country for up to 30 days Per Entry
This eVisa can be issued for purposes such as tourism or visiting a relative. If you want to travel to Laos for other reasons, you need to apply for a standard visa
Upon arrival in Laos, you will need to present your biometric passport along with your eVisa, which must be printed.
Travelers must have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival and have at least 1 page available for stamping.
The Laos Tourist eVisa is only available for travelers who plan to enter Laos through the Wattay International Airport, Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge I, Luan Prabang International Airport, Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge II, and Pakse International Airport.
Possession of the Laos Tourist eVisa does not provide automatic right of entry for the holder into the country. An immigration officer at the port of entry may refuse entry to any person, if s/he believes that such a person is unable to fulfill the immigration requirements, or that such a person's presence in Laos would be contrary to national interests or security.
