Request letter to Laos embassy
Before riding a foreign motorcycle into the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, you might be asked by border officials to produce a letter of permission from the Laos embassy. The embassy of Laos in Singapore is very specific about the format of request submission. Download the request letter template below and replace the dummy text (in blue italics) with the information relevant to your planned Laos trip. You will need to refer to your vehicle log card. Submit your completed request letter at the Laos embassy, along with photocopies of your passport, International Driving Permit and vehicle log card, as well as a S$20 fee. Try to also request for a letter of permission that is in both English and Lao. They should have your letter of permission ready for collection within a few days.
