Embassies in Laos

laos embassies and consulates

Visiting an embassy is not always necessary. In fact, many countries including Laos have recently implemented a series of new immigration policies to speed up and digitalize protocols and bureaucracy.

Among them, for example, the possibility to fill out a Laos eVisa application form entirely online and pay the Laos visa application fee from any device connected to the internet. International tourists wishing to spend up to 30 days in Laos can apply for their visa from anywhere in the world now and receive their Laos eVisa approval letter via email without having to visit an embassy or consulate once.

What Is the Role of an Embassy or Consulate?

An embassy is the base of a country’s diplomatic mission abroad. Embassies have two main purposes: protecting and fostering the relations between the home country and the host country, and providing assistance and support to their citizens abroad. Within a nation’s borders, there is only one embassy per foreign country represented — usually, in the host country’s capital city.

A consulate usually takes care of minor issues. Processing visa applications (now you can do it online, check if you had an elegible passport  to apply to Laos Approval Letter), issuing new passports, marriage certificates, and other official documents is usually considered consular work. A consular section is usually attached to the embassy building but there may also be several other consular offices around the country, especially in tourist centers.

What Can the Embassy Help You with?

Knowing where your nearest embassy or consulate is before you travel to Laos can be crucial, especially in the case of an emergency. Here’s a list of circumstances in which your embassy or consulate can help:

  • If your passport gets lost or stolen.
  • If you’ve fallen seriously ill abroad. The embassy can put you in contact with a doctor that speaks your language and inform your family.
  • If you’ve been arrested for, or have been the victim of a crime. The embassy can put you in contact with your family back home and with lawyers in the country.
  • If you need to validate or translate official documents to use in the country you’re visiting.

Your embassy cannot:

  • Intervene in court proceedings, release you from jail, or prevent deportation.
  • Pay for your legal or medical expenses. There are special cases in which it may grant you a loan.
  • Provide accommodation, except for special circumstances.
  • Help you enter a foreign country if you don’t have the required documents and permits. In Laos, embassies of foreign countries will not, for example, help you get through any of the Laos border crossing points.
