Following a notice of the Lao Foreign Ministry on the continued closure of border gates to May 17, the Vietnamese Embassy held working sessions with the Lao side and asked the Lao Government to facilitate the repatriation of Vietnamese citizens.

Subsequently, the Lao Foreign Ministry sent a diplomatic note to the embassy, informing that Laos allows foreign citizens to register with their home country’s embassy to exit Laos. The list of such citizens should be informed to the Lao Foreign Ministry, and the ministry will coordinate with relevant agencies to facilitate the foreign citizens' exit through international border gates.

Accordingly, those wishing to return to Vietnam must submit applications at the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate Generals in Laos.

The list of those eligible for repatriation will be transferred to Lao authorities and publicized on the websites of the Vietnamese Embassy and Consulate Generals.
