Canadians are recommended to read the Laotian visa policy. They will find useful information for them regarding Laos’s online visa and what activities they can carry out.
Citizens of Canada are eligible to apply for the eVisa if their trip meets the following criteria:
- They visit Laos for tourism and leisure only
- Their stay in the country will not extend beyond a month
- They will only need a single entry into the country
- They will arrive in Laos within 2 months of their application
The eVisa for Laos, once approved, is valid for 60 days. Canadian citizens should consider that if they do not use it for their entry within 2 months, it will no longer be valid, and they will need to request a new one.
Nationals from Canada should take into account the eVisa for Laos does not allow them to partake in any form of employment (paid or otherwise).
If travelers from Canada plan to visit Laos for purposes other than tourism or for stays longer than a month, they should pay a visit to the Consulate of Laos in Vancouver for more suited visa options.
