New members of the Laos forum, introduce yourselves here - 2019

Hi all,

Newbie on the Laos forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country,
or to tell us more on your expat projects in Laos if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hello everyone! I am a Canadian moving to Vientiane this weekend for six months. I'm incredibly excited to enjoy this beautiful country and its culture, and am looking forward to connecting with you! I'm always open to meeting up for coffee or a drink and good conversation! Cheers.

Hi All
I have been iv Laos for about 12 years now. I have lived in many places around the world and spent enough time in 6 of them to get paid work.The family runs a mixes organic farm in Pakxan which does not make much money , but keeps us occupied.
MY topics of interest are economics and politics on the world stage rather than here.
My philosophy is left of center although I am happy to agree to differ with any other points of view. My present outside Laos project is to design and build a better bush fire shelter.

Hi everyone 😊,

My name is Mimi. I am Thai. I am living in Taiwan. But I am planing to move to Laos ( accompany my Taiwanese husband who gets a job there). I also bring my two kids to Laos with me.
Now I am searching for the information about visa (what kind of visa I should apply for?? and student visa for my kids?? Already Google it, but has few information. If anyone know about visa information and procedure please share and give me some advices. 😊😊

Best regards,

As Thailand and Laos are part of the ASEAN group of countries, this will make it easier for you to find work. The 2 languages are similar too. The employer is responsible for the visas.
Try www.immigration,gov.laos for student visas.

Thank you Stumpy 🙂🙂

Hi--I plan on moving to Laos and marrying my long time partner there.    I foresee wrinkles and entanglements in our complicated complications and need advice and information.   My partner and our daughter are moving back to Laos (my partner met me while she was in Thailand).  I am in China teaching.
