Multiple Entry

by Corinne
(Hue, Vietnam)

I am planning on entering Laos from Vietnam, buying a Visa on Arrival. I will then be leaving Laos to fly to Cambodia, but I am wondering if it is possible to re-enter Laos from Cambodia- will I have to buy another visa? Or can I re-enter Laos within the 30 day visa period? Or will I not be able to re-enter Laos?


Thank you!

You can re-enter Laos, but need to buy a new visa

Hi Corinne,

Yes, it is possible to re-enter Laos from Cambodia, but you will have to buy another visa.
The visa you buy on arrival is usually a single entry visa so.. once you leave to other country the visa is finished. If you want to enter Laos again you have to get a new visa. Even if you leave in the morning and return in the afternoon you still have to buy a new visa.

Hope this is helpful.

multiple entry

Hi I am from the UK and got a visa on arrival in Laos which I think is for 30 days and I have only been here for around 10. I am now travelling into Vietnam and then will be coming back into Laos. Does my visa cover this or will I have to purchase another visa when I come back into Laos? Thanks

On arrival visa is for one entry only
by: Duangpy

Hi there,
Yes, the visa you got on arrival is for 30 days.
All the visas are single entry only regardless of where you get it unless it's specified "multiple entry". So that says when you leave Laos to another country your Lao visa ends no matter how long/short you've spent time in Laos.

So... for your case when you exit Laos to Vietnam then come back to Laos again, you'll have to get a new visa.

Hope helps,
D.
