Important Information

UK citizens require a visa to enter Laos. It is recommended that you obtain this before you travel, though they can be issued to you on arrival in Laos. When you enter Laos, make sure you get an entry stamp in your passport, as failing to do so could lead to arrest or a large fine. Your passport should be valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry.
