Do I Need a Visa to Visit Laos?

Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport require a visa to visit Laos. Canadian tourists can buy a visa-upon-arrival at the major international airports in Laos, and at major land crossing border points.

Nationals of all countries need a visa.

Please use our U.S. partner called ITS EASY for this visa as the Laotian Embassy to Canada is located in the United States.

To acquire a business visa you must first have the visa authorization of a sponsoring company in Laos, and this must be sent directly to the Lao Embassy (fax 1-202-332-4923), and attached to your application.
