Laos recently created an online travel authorization, known as Laos eVisa, that allows Argentine citizens to apply for an electronic visa to visit the country.
Travelers of Argentina who fill the online application form before their departure to Laos avoid losing time in Laos’ Immigration Control Borders, carrying all the printed documents or even forgetting some of them.
The eVisa for Laos also saves time since travelers do not need to visit the consulate or embassy of Laos in Argentina.
With a good internet connection, a minimum of documents required, and a post-control work of our agents, the application of a tourist visa to Laos is the best option that guarantees Argentine travelers to have an optimal experience before departure.
