Laos visa for indonesian pasport holder

Can Indonesian passport holder get Laos without visa?


Hi Dian,

Thanks for dropping by.
At the moment Indonesian passport holders CANNOT enter Laos without a visa. You can get a visa at Lao airports and border check points on your arrival.

I was told that the free visa policy between Laos and Indonesia will be implemented next month (April 2011).

I'll keep my antenna up, and will post it here as soon as I have an update.

Laos Visa
by: JL

Dear D.Phothisane,

Last month (April 2011) when I was in Cambodia, trying to get visa to Laos, The travel agent in Phnom Phen after attempt to process to get Laos visa at Laos embassy, returned my passport and said that for Indonesia there is no need to apply for visa if it is a short visit (less than 15 days) and at Laos entry post I will be granted a visitor-pass (transit visa?). For longer stay then I will need a visa.

Since I change my travel plan, I did not enter Laos, so I can't confirm the above information. I'll be glad if the above information is correct, since I plan to come to Laos sometime next year.

I actually tried to ask when exactly the visa free policy between Laos and Indonesia is going to be implemented but no date was given. But the agreement has been signed between the two governments. It was mentioned by another site visitor here.
