Visa for Laos December 17, 2006Posted by Guido in General, travelling.
You need to get a visa to enter Laos, but getting one is fairly easy. You can get it at all official international border crossings and at the international airports of Vientiane and Luang Prabang. The tourist visa is $30 (or equivalent in Thai baht). It’s valid for 15 days and extendible up to an additional two weeks.
VERY IMPORTANT: Bring the money in Dollars when you arrive, because you won’t find atm’s or money changers at the border. You have to bring a pass photo and fill out the name of the hotel you’re staying at. They also ask for a contact in Laos. Just fill out the name of the hotel you will be staying at.
