Hanoi Voyages > Laos travel guide > Visa on Arrival Procedure in Laos

PASSEPORT

YOU MUST IMMERSE YOUR AUTHORITIES IN YOUR COUNTRY ON THE CONDITIONS OF VALIDITY OF YOUR PASSPORT.

You must make sure your passport is valid for the required period that is stipulated by the authorities of the country you are entering. Lao authorities require it to be valid for at least six months after your exit date.

In all of 2018 selected countries like Scandinavia do not need a visa for visits that do not excite 15 days. 

Visa on arrival

You can get the visa on arrival in Laos at all entry points to Laos. At the airport in Luang Prabang and Passé or Wattay (Vientiane) or any land border crossings. You will need your passport, a completed form, two passport-size photos (4×6 cm), and around USD 30. The pre-filled form can be downloaded on the Laos embassy homepage of your country.  If you have no pre-filled form, you will be given one and you fill it out on the spot, which is just as easy as filling it beforehand. Customs will then issue you a visa. The formality is fast and straightforward.
