Meanwhile in Laos, the US Department of State has arranged a special charter flight for US citizens and US permanent residents.

The flight will depart from Vientiane at around 1700, 11 April 11 for San Francisco.  Exact departure time and routing are subject to change.

All passengers will need to reimburse the US Government for the flight, and a promissory note for approximately USD1900 must be signed before boarding. 

No cash or credit card payments will be accepted. Passengers will be responsible for any arrangements or costs (lodging, onward destination or local transportation) beyond the initial destination in the United States.  

Travellers who are eligible to book this flight should email, listing the names of the individuals who intend to depart on the flight. 

The embassy is not aware of any option available to US citizens to leave Laos via commercial flights.  The advisory warns US citizens who wish to return to the United States that they should avail themselves of this chartered flight unless they are prepared to remain in Laos for an indefinite period.
