Moving To Laos

🇱🇦 Laos, (LA)

Laos International Moving Services

Relocation is a concept that is not new to many international companies or individuals who may want to settle in a different country. However, it is a task that requires a lot of things to be put into consideration and preparations made in advance. To easily navigate through this process, do not undertake it on your own but rather seek assistance from professional moving companies that provide international moving services. Preferably settle for a company that will also ship your car to Laos.

Duties required for household items

On the topic of receiving duty exemption from customs, reputable sources diverge. One states that as long as you have a Work Permit, and your employer has a business and investment license - you can obtain import duty exemption (1). The Association of International Movers disagrees, guiding that only foreigners employed by NGOs are eligible for exemption (2).

If exemption isn’t possible in your case, then you can expect to pay the full duty rate - even on your used household goods. Contact customs to learn the most up-to-date information regarding the current duty rates being charged.

Documents required for household items

You must provide a valid Work Visa, as well as a letter from your employer. A copy of your employer’s investment license, along with either their or your business license is required. The Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment and your passport must be shown as well. If you’ll be applying for duty exemption, then a letter written by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must be provided (3).

Duties required for vehicles

Here sources agree that duty exemption for vehicle imports, is only available for diplomats or those working for an NGO (4). Otherwise, expensive taxes and duties apply. These can reach as high as 300% of the vehicle’s purchase price. In addition, the vehicle import process is intricate and moves slowly. Therefore, some sources recommended that you don’t bring a vehicle with you, when relocating to Laos (5).

Documents required for vehicles

The vehicle’s title and registration (from the origin country) must be given to customs. A valid letter of employment and your import permission should also be presented. The Original Bill of Lading is required as well. Finally, paperwork detailing the engine number and size, color, year of production and vehicle model is mandatory documentation (6).

The above discussion isn’t exhaustive, and other regulations, fees and paperwork will apply. For this reason, when importing your household goods and vehicle into Laos - it’s important that you first discuss your move with customs.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Putting the following factors into place will make your move easier:

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
