Visa Information

You are booked and ready to go, but what about your visa?


Don't worry, for most countries it is very easy to get a one month visa on arrival. 

Just remember to bring a passport photo and around $30 - $45 American dollars (depending on your nationality).


We have done all the hard work and found a website that gives you all the information: click here.


Top Tips:

  • Make sure you have a pen for filling in the forms!
  • If you arrive on a weekend, early in the morning, late at night or you haven't got a passport photo, make sure to bring some spare dollars as they will charge $1 extra for all the above.
  • In case you will stay with us longer than one month you can easily extend your visa by travelling down to Vientiane and crossing the border. It takes about 4 hours by bus to get to Vientiane. You can also get an extension in Vang Vieng but it is more expensive at $3 a day.
  • We assist in organising visas for one year for coordinators.
