The Laos eVisa, introduced in July 2019, is an online visa which allows eligible citizens to travel to Laos for a short stay for tourism.
The Lao government has implemented the online visa application for Laos in order to facilitate the process of obtaining a Laos visa for eligible nationalities and boost tourism in the country.
The eVisa for Laos is a single-entry online visa which allows a maximum stay of 30 days in Laos and is valid for 60 days from the date of approval.
Eligible citizens can apply through the simple Laos visa application online. It only takes a few minutes to complete the Laos eVisa application form with personal, passport, and travel information, to receive a Laos visa online approval letter via email.
Travelers are advised to submit a Laos visa application form at least 7 days before the intended date of arrival in Laos, to allow for sufficient processing time.
Holders of the Laos online visa are able to gain expedited access to Laos through 7 designated ports of entry in the country:
- Boten International Checkpoint
- Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge I
- Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge II
- Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge IV
- Luang Prabang International Airport
- Pakse International Airport
- Wattay International Airport
Those who wish to visit Laos for longer periods or purposes other than tourism should contact the nearest Lao Embassy or Consulate for further information.
