Visa to Lao?
« on: September 19, 2019, 04:17:43 PM »
GETTING A 30 DAY TOURIST VISA TO LAO FROM CONSULATE IN KHON KAEN ?

1. Any updates about getting a visa to Lao?

2. Where are they keeping the Lao Consulate these days?  It used to be on lower Sri Chan Road, but I think they moved it, didn't they?

3. The prices used to be something like $US30. What is it now?

4. If you get a 30 days visa, how soon do you have to use it?  In other words, how far in advance of your trip can you obtain it? I am trying to remember if they offered two-week visas?


Tks, lah!

Check the Google Maps address I have pasted for where the Consulate is located, it is on Mittraphap Road North of town.  Teleephone - [color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]043 393 402.[/color]

I think the price is 1500 baht.


The last time I got one, it was valid for 60 days.


Remember, isn't there a money issue coming back into Thailand?

The Lao Consulate is on the right hand side of Mittraphap Road past Tesco Lotus, opposite the entrance to the Raja City Lakeside and Garden Home. If you are thinking of using a songtaw to go up there becareful because one of them only goes as far as just past the entrance to the University

Here is good website that provides information for the necessary requirements of all visa types.  It is the Thai Consulate website in Vientiane.

Good luck!

Tks Frank, Russell, Terry.  BTW, this is just a fall-back position for me.  I am going to assume everything will go smoothly on my extension renewal in Nov or Dec. However, if there is a problem, I want to have a Plan B in place rather than trying to play catch-up at the last minute.
