Nigerian can get Lao visa at Lao consulate in its neighbor countries
by: Duangpy


Here comes the answer.
There is no Lao consulate or embassy in your region. And visa on arrival is not available for Nigerian passport holders and some other nationals.

So... the only option I can suggest now is that you get your Lao visa at a Lao consulate on your way to Laos. Going to Lao, you need to go through one of its neighboring countries anyway (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia etc), Lao consulate in these and other nearby countries like Malaysia, Singapore, China or Myanmar can issue you the visa.

You may need to plan your trip to spare some days for the visa. You can get it within a few hours with extra fee. But for normal process and under normal circumstances, it takes 1-2 days (you submit your application in the morning and get the visa in the afternoon or the next day at the latest provided that you supply all necessary documents).

I've repeated this same question/answers several times, but the question was asked by other nationalities (they are not eligible for Lao visa on arrival either) like Pakistani,,
Bangladesh and more

If you can read through the posts you’ll get a better idea.

Hope this helps.

I disagree with your answer

Hi... Laos embassy in Malaysia refuse to collect my application because I didn't have Malaysia permit I told them that I came from Nigeria just to apply loas visa. So your answer is not really.

The possibility is there but no guarantee everyone will get it
by: Duangpy

Well... you can absolutely disagree. I'm sorry to hear you weren't successful.

I should have stated in my earlier posts that not everyone will be successful (same as other stuff e.g. taking an exam, applying for a job etc. Not every succeed, nothing can guarantee a 100% success rate). But what I've been trying to do is that to provide the info that the option is there, whether you'll be successful depends on many factors which I don't know exactly what they are.
