It is of particular concern to me to further intensify the long-standing, close relationship between Germany and Laos in line with the Policy Guidelines for the Indo-Pacific and to break new grounds in bilateral cooperation.

Ambassador Annette Knobloch

Due to the Lockdown measures imposed on Vientiane Capital on 19 September 2021 in order to prevent and control the global spread of the SARS-CoV2-virus, we herewith announce that access to the German Embassy for the general public for all consular, visa and passport related issues (including passport pick-up) will remain temporarily closed. You can still contact the Embassy by email at following address: info@vientiane.diplo.de.

Exemptions can only be made in acute consular emergency situations (not visa matters). In case of an acute consular emergency, please contact this Embassy's on-call emergency service.

Due to the existing travel restrictions for all non-essential travels from third countries to Germany, our visa application center at VFS Global is closed until further notice. Travelers that are exempted from the travel restrictions can submit their visa application directly at the Embassy, but by appointment only. Further information on the travel restrictions can be found here: https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/EN/topics/civil-protection/coronavirus/coronavirus-faqs.html

We thank you for your understanding in this exceptional crisis situation.

Happy New Year 2022!
