We are going to set-up a business, with HQ in Luang Prabang. Can anyone recommend an agency to assist?
AlexUli replied on September 03, 2014 with:
Thanks - in fact I'm searching for a legal firm. But lawyers, based in Vientiane don't seem to be keen on stepping on ground in Luang Prabang?!
stumpy replied on September 03, 2014 with:
I suggest you search for a legal firm who specializes in this. The better legal firms are in Vientiane especially the English speaking ones. They will guide you through the process [ for a price] but this will be much better than trying to deal with govt officialdom in Laos by yourself.

Hi everybody, I am planning to move to Laos with my family soon. I want to purchase a car, but not sure what would be the best way as my budget is quite limited. Is it possible to buy a decent second hand car there (without searching for too long)? Is it possinle to transport a second hand car from abroad and get it registered in Laos? Thanks in advance!

Not to Hijack post. BUT :) Here in the USA we drive on both sides of the road.What a waste to just drive on one side. BUT we drive from the left side of vehicle VS in LOS they drive from the right side of vehicle. In both the driver is closest to the centerline.But as is the case in some countries The rules of the road are merely annoying suggestions. SORRY,bored and just couldn't stop myself. :)

Eks???? Also , NZ, Australia, Singapore/Malaysia, HK, Indonesia, India/Pakistan/Bangladesh/Sri Lanka, , Sth Africa, and many other African countries, etc, even Canada once. Per head of population there would be more people driving on the LH side of the road, than the RH Side.

LuangPrabangSchool initially posted:
I'm a new member on this forum, and would especially like to reach out to expats with families who are making the move to Laos. I am the Headmaster of the new, international school that recently opened in Luang Prabang. The school is called Kiettisack International School (KIS) and it was established 20 years ago in the capital city of Vientiane. Last year, we set up a branch school in Luang Prabang, albeit in temporary accommodation. Building work began on a superb new campus that's located in a beautiful rural location on the outskirts of the town. That new campus is slated to open at the start of the new school year in September 2013. For expats with families, providing decent schooling for their children in Luang Prabang was a bit of a problem, but KIS can now offer a solution for all age levels. Our current school intake includes both Lao and expat children. If anyone is interested to learn more about our school, please contact me by PM. If you are a qualified teacher (degree and ESL or subject certificate), and are interested in working at KIS, please contact me. Whilst teaching experience is important of course, the need for 'paper' qualifications is a requirement of the Lao government, so I cannot consider those experienced teachers who not have the required qualifications.

Never got an answer to my post. Assume the school does not need volunteers. Can someone recommend another school or temple where i might teach conversational english. Thx

A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at:

stumpy replied to the thread How to get a job on the Laos forum:
onlythedon initially posted:
Hi, Can anyone tell me how I can get a job in Vientiane. I have been trying to months now but all the jobs are for Lao nationals and the NGO jobs seen to be for those with a very specific skill set. I've been living in Laos for 2 years.
stumpy replied most recently with:
Have you tried this site.
ironbark replied most recently with:
Teaching is plan C for me so I have never made a serious effort to get one. From what I have heard is that it is easy to get a part time job of just a couple of hours but hard to get a full time/full pay job. If you are looking for a liveable income it is not the job ... but if all you want is a 1 year visa and a bit of BeerLaos money they are OK

pepperdepper replied to the thread translation services. on the Laos forum:
MAWhite initially posted:
Hi all. I am starting a small business in lao and will need a competant translator full time during startup and reducing to a day a week once established. For my venture I will need to effectively communicate with several groups. I will be trading with the farming community and will also need to purchase recycled materials. I understand that recycling in Vientane is an occupation that has a predominantly Vietnamese workforce. I would welcome any advice on how to find and hire a competant assist, whether I would be better to use to individuals who have similar origens to those with whom I am trying to negotiate, and what prices I should expect to pay. Thanks for any advice.
