Please note that visas for Vietnam, Laos and Thailand are the responsibility of the individual traveller. The visa requirements for your trip vary depending on where you are from and where you are going. For the most up to date information please check your Governments Foreign Ministry website or with you travel agent as rules do change. It is important that you check for yourself. For most travellers there will probably be an Embassy or Consulate in the country that you live in.
VIETNAM - Visas for Vietnam need to be arranged ahead of time (before your trip) as the processing time varies and Visas are NOT available at any land border or Aiport arrival point. Also ensure your visa 'valid from date' is on or before the first day of your trip.
LAOS - Visas are issued upon arrival in Laos. You will need two passport size photographs and approx $50. Tourists are generally admitted to Laos for 15 days with a visa on arrival or for 30 days with a visa issued at a Lao embassy.
THAILAND - When entering the country via a land border, you will be given a 15 day visa on arrival. Note that your passport must be valid for at least six months from your time of entry: Thailand: Australian, British, Canadian, American, Belgian, Swedish, German, Dutch and Danish passport holders do not require a visa for a stay of 30 days or less when flying into Thailand. As we are moving overland from Laos, if you plan on staying in Thailand for more than 15 days you should apply for a Thai visa prior to the trip. If you are flying into Thailand on more than one occasion you will need to apply for a multiple entry visa. Please ask your travel agent or contact your nearest Thai Embassy the most up to date requirements.
Please be aware that you will require 2 clean pages (minimum) in your passport and at least 6 months validity.
