Laos Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Laos visa?
The best time to apply for your Laos visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Laos visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Laos visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx.
