To obtain a three month tourist visa for Laos, with a validity starting from the date of issuance, for a 30 day maximum stay in Laos, you must:

  • Hold a passport (still valid for at least 6 months after the end of the trip)
  • ID Photos
  • Pay a €30 to €50 fee in your country of origin
  • Fill in an application form downloadable on the official website of the Laos Embassy of your country.

There are three different options to apply for a visa:

  • By air mail (takes about 1 week to be delivered)
  • At the Laos Embassy (takes a few days)
  • At the airport of Vientiane (valid for 30 days, price: 30-40 dollars, according to the country of origin): we recommend this option


The security conditions in Laos are very satisfactory, you can travel without constraints while taking reasonable precautions outside the urban centers.


Recommended vaccinations:

  • Diphtheria-Tetanus-Polio
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Viral hepatitis A and B

Rabies: is present permanently in all South-East Asia. Use caution in town and in the provinces with stray animals. One should avoid any contact with suspicious animals and perhaps think of a preventive vaccination.

Is there a Malaria and Dengue Fever risk in Vientiane?

Malaria : is transmitted by mosquito bites, it is best to use different protections such as sprays, creams, electric diffusers, mosquito nets... In Vientiane, there is no real danger, but you still need protection with repellents.

Malaria : is much more important in the South of the country.
However, if you decide to travel in other parts of the country, which are areas at risk during your stay, you need to plan a treatment such as Malarone (ask your doctor to prescribe you the most appropriate treatment according to your needs).

Dengue Fever: Like Malaria, Dengue Fever is transmitted by moskito bites. There are regular outbreaks in the Southern Provinces of Laos. There is no real danger in Vientiane. However, it is better to be safe using repellents and wearing long clothes especially at sunrise and sunset.
