Get a Vietnam visa from Laos

Lao nationals traveling to Vietnam for a period of up to more than 30 days are required to obtain a Vietnam visa. There are two options to get a Vietnam visa: through Vietnam Embassy in Vientiane, Laos or via an online Vietnam visa agent.

Option 1: Apply for a Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassy in Vientiane, Laos.

You can obtain a Vietnam visa at the Embassy of Vietnam in Vientiane capital, Laos. Here, you will be instructed step by step. The process is pretty easy to follow; however the visa fee in there is little higher than that of online Vietnam visa agent.

  • Issuing unit: Vietnam Embassy
  • Processing time: 2- 5 days
  • Visa fees: Around $50 (depends on your type of visa)
  • Your original passport required
  • The passport has minimum 6 months validity and at least two blank pages.
