Laos evisa

This item appears on page 4 of the September 2019 issue.

The country of Laos began offering evisas to travelers from 180 countries, including the US, Canada and the UK, on July 9. The single-entry evisa allows a visitor to stay in Laos for up to 30 days.

To apply, visit (note that many websites claim to be the official evisa website, but this website is genuine) and fill out the application. You will need a digital, passport-style photo and a scan of the bio page of your passport, which must show at least six months of validity from your planned date of arrival. The fee — $35 for US and UK citizens, $30 for citizens of other nations — must be paid by debit or credit card. Approval typically occurs within three days.
