To apply, travellers must fill out an online form and pay the processing fee via credit card. (Visa fees will incur an added 15 USD when applying online.)

The processing time is expected to take up to three working days after which approved travellers can download an official eVisa approval letter to show upon arrival in the country. 

Getting an eVisa before arrival will further speed up travellers’ entry times at eVisa priority lanes at two of the country’s main entry points:

  • Wattay International Airport
