Vietnam Visa in Vientiane

February 25-28, 2010 – Day 427-430 – Vientiane, Laos

Very little to tell of these last several days. Funny, this whole traveling around the world thing requires lots of moving around. We took another awful all day bus from Luang Prabang to Vientiane and spent the next couple of days hanging out, walking around the city, and just generally waiting on our Vietnamese visa coming in another couple days.

You've been warned


traveltipicon1 Travel Tip: – Vietnamese Visa in Vientiane, Laos

In case you are heading Vietnam from Laos, you can easily apply for your visa at the Vietnam Embassy, nearby Victory Gate. The application process took maybe 10 minutes to fill out the paper, turn it in, and leave again. From the riverside we caught a tuk tuk to the embassy for 10,000 Kip/pp. The visa (for Americans) cost $45 or 405,000 Kip (about $46-47 depending on the current exchange rate).

  1. Ah, Vientiane. Probably one of my least favorite stops so far. I was there for days waiting for my Vietnamese visa, too, and really couldn’t wait to leave. Hopefully you guys found better accommodations than what I ended up with!
