Tourists can travel to Laos again

Pirates, Laos is one of our favourite countries in Southeast Asia, and it is open once again to travellers!

Here's everything you need to know about the tourist opening and the new entry rules.

Published by

As one of the last countries in Southeast Asia, Laos is now allowing tourists to enter again. This was announced by the government last weekend. Surprisingly, no corona tests before the flight or on site should be necessary for entry.

What conditions do I have to meet for entry?

✅ Double corona vaccination

✅ Visa (apply at the embassy or online, according to the Federal Foreign Office this should also be possible “On Arrival” i.e., on site when entering the country – up to 30 days, extension possible; present a passport that is still valid for 6 months and two passport photos)

No tests

No quarantine

When do the new rules apply?

From now onwards.

How to get to Laos cheaply?

When a country opens at such short notice, good flight connections are usually rare. We would recommend that you book flights to Bangkok (pay attention to the entry rules for Thailand) and then fly on from there.
