How to apply for the Laos Tourist eVisa?

The Laos Immigration Department has recently introduced a system that allows citizens from some nations the chance to apply for electronic visas instead of standard paper visas, which means that travelers from eligible nations don't need to visit an embassy or mail in their passport for review.

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.

Applying with iVisa

To apply with iVisa just follow these simple steps:

  • First, read all the information and fill out your details in the Laos Tourist eVisa application form. Then, choose the processing time that best suits your needs.

  • Second, double-check and verify the information you provided in the form, and then pay the iVisa processing fee (see below on the Calculator Tool for more information on service fees).

  • Third, attach any documents required and click on the submit button to apply for your Laos Tourist eVisa.

At iVisa we have been in the business of processing visa applications for many years and we have worked hard to improve all our services. We strive to make our processes quick and easy to follow. The idea that getting a visa is cumbersome is a thing of the past. With iVisa getting your Visa is as easy as opening a new email address.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. We recommend that you go over to our reviews section and read what our past customers have said about our services. We’re sure you’ll find them to your liking.

To take into account

Having the Laos Tourist eVisa does not provide an automatic right of entry into the country. An immigration officer at the port of entry may refuse entry to anyone who is unable to fulfill the immigration requirements, or that their presence in Laos would be contrary to national interests or security.

It will depend on where your application stands. If it hasn’t been processed yet, it’s possible to make changes. As soon as you realize you made a mistake, connect with our customer service team to receive the help you need. If your application is already with the government, sometimes it is still possible to make changes; however, it will depend on each government’s policies. If you already received your visa, there is no possibility of changing your order.
Don’t worry! Sometimes emails don’t arrive or go straight to the spam folder. In this case, you can log into your iVisa account. As soon as your payment goes through, the platform creates an account on your behalf, where you can see the status of your application. Go to the iVisa website, log in, change the password the first time, and go through your order. You don’t need an email confirmation as you have your own account.

At iVisa, we understand that your time is valuable, and we strive to provide you with the fastest service possible. Our processing times are estimated based on the average duration it takes governments to process visa applications. These estimated times begin from the moment we receive all the correct information for your application until you receive your visa. While we work diligently to expedite the process, it’s important to note that we are reliant on the processing times set by the government authorities.
