I've read that you need to show proof of departure from Laos in order to get a visa on arrival. But do they really check? I'm flying into Luang Prabang from Thailand. Is proof of funds sufficient if I'm asked?
Thank you!

    I recently was in Laos and they did not check for onward travel in either Cambodia nor Laos. almost 5 years ago

    But it'd be bad to be the ONE they do check. Buy the cheapest bus ticket out that you can.... you don't have to use it and you won't lose much money, but it's sufficient proof to get that visa.

    you can make your own departure ticket, a fake one, there are websites for this. You fill a form with the 'flight details' and then print the fake ticket. Just be sure to use real flight numbers and times (just copy them from booking websites). They just need a piece of paper. almost 5 years ago

    Just to note - I was not asked at customs for proof of onward travel (though I did have it!), just for the number of days I planned to stay. almost 5 years ago
