Passports & Visas
All visitors entering Laos must possess valid passports.
Visas can be obtained from Lao Embassies and Consulates abroad. Alternatively, a 30-day tourist visa can be obtained on arrival at a number of international airports and border checkpoints in Laos. Visa-On-Arrival is generally the most convenient, affordable and time-efficient way to acquire a Lao visa.
Further information about visas is available at:
- Department of Immigration of Lao PDR
- Laos official tourism website
- Visa Application Form
- General Visa-On-Arrival information
Visa application is the sole responsibility of the participant. The LAWASIA Secretariat and conference organisers are unable to provide visa advice or assistance.
Should a letter of invitation be required, please advise the secretariat by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: +61 2 9926 0165.
Letters to assist visa applications will not be issued until full registration and payment is received and processed by the LAWASIA Secretariat.
