Visa information for Pakistani nationals

I am from Pakistan and intend to visit Laos on visit/tourism visa. As a Pakistani national can I get the visa on arrival or I have to get the visa before arrival?


Other problem is that if I need the visa before arrival then where I need to apply for the visa as there is no Lao embassy in Pakistan?

Pakistani national need to get Lao visa before arrival
by: D.

Warm greeting,

Because Pakistan is among 29 countries that Laos doesn't grant visa on arrival to, you need to get visa before entering Laos.

FYI: here is the mentioned list http://www.laos-guide-999.com/visa-on-arrival.html#noteligble

You can apply for the visa at Lao embassy/consulate nearest to your country. Or if you travel through Thailand or any Laos' neighboring countries you can apply for the visa there. Many tourists who are not eligible for Lao visa on arrival did that and have been successful. Some reported that it is an easy process others had a less convenience experience, but most got want they asked for (the visa).

Here is what they have shared on the forum http://bit.ly/1zx5YaH

Hope this helps.
