Please advise if I am able to obtain a visa for Laos at the Houei Sai border. I have an American passport.
Yes. It is possible to get visa on arrival at the Houei Sai border. Just need to prepare 02 things below:
1) One full blank page in your passport.
2) there must be at least 6 months validity on the passport. They have turned many people away because of these two things.Please carry at least two passport photos to be safe and a copy of your passport. Good luck!
