Visa for Laos


A visa is required to travel to Laos. The type of visa you need depends on the purpose of your trip. Are you visiting Laos as a tourist? Then you should apply for a tourist visa. Are you going on a business trip? Then apply for a business visa.



Please be aware: a visa for a stay up to 30 days could be obtained at the airport of Vientiane, Luang Prabang and Pakse on arrival. However, there are no guarantees that you will receive the visa and therefore we recommend to applying for a visa in advance.
