Recognition of foreign qualifications in Laos

Hello everyone,

Were your professional qualifications recognised in Laos? What country did you complete your qualifications in? What profession are you in?

Did you have to go through any formalities to get your qualifications recognised, such as to have them translated?

If your qualifications weren't recognised, were there any additional tests or exams you had to complete before you were able to practice your profession in Laos or continue with your studies?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

When I worked here in Laos on an Asian Development Bank road project, all our qualifications were submitted by our employer for vetting as part of the tender process.

No translations were necessary and no additional tests were needed.

I have a degree in communications which was swayed towards global and intercultural communications. Integral to the degree was writing and research. I've been teaching at an international school and have done a lot of writing for the Laos government and various companies. My qualifications were recognized as being valid, no translation was asked for.

Hi Priscilla,

I think no translations required.

I have been teaching in Laos and luckily, I was able to apply my profession here. The schools recognises teaching qualification from the Philippines.

Cheers.

hi cereal
the international school that you taught at, what was the main subject?
and doing writing for the government and companies, were they like advertising companies?
i ask because i have a background in internet marketing / digital advertising

Cereal, may I ask, what is it like to teach in an International school in Laos? I assume you are in Vientiane. I have taught in Australia and various Asian countries, but not yet in Laos. Thinking of making the change.
