No Lao visa on arrival for Syrian passport holder
by: Duangpy

Hi there,
According to the list here http://www.laos-guide-999.com/visa-on-arrival.html#noteligble, Syrian passport holders are not eligible for Lao visa on arrival regardless of your residency.

The only way to get the visa is to go to the embassy in other countries e.g. Thailand where you probably travel through anyway if you travel to Laos.

If you haven't come across the forum/posts where travelers asked similar questions and share their experience I'd recommend this post http://www.laos-guide-999.com/bangladeshi-passport-holder.html. The title is 'Bangladeshi Passport holder' but the information is applicable to you too. It's worth reading through.
