Official Launch of Lao eVisa Service

The Lao Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially launched the country’s e-Visa system during a ceremony at the Wattay International Airport in Vientiane, Laos on July 9. Speaking at the event, Foreign Minister Saleumxay Kommasith said due to the limited number of Lao embassies and consulates overseas, the issuing of Lao visas for foreigners has been costly and time-consuming. As a result, the Lao government has developed the e-Visa service to facilitate traveling between Laos and other nations, he said, adding that the move is also part of the country’s policy to develop modern, effective and transparent public services. The minister noted that the new service will run alongside the existing visa system. You can now apply for a Laos eVisa online visa at this official website Laos eVisa.
