Laos Visa on Arrival

Applicable for tours entering Laos via cruise.

All Wendy Wu group tours include the Laos visa processing fee, unless you have opted to arrange this yourself. For private tours or short stays, the visa may not be included, please refer to your invoice. 

We organise the Laos visa on arrival only when entering Laos by cruise port, including on the Thailand & Laos Adventure tour where the e-Visa is not valid.

If you are entering Laos via flight, we will apply for the e-Visa before your arrival. Please refer to the e-Visa instructions here.
