Moving to Laos . Expatriate and live in Laos

 

 

There are destinations that, a priori, are discarded, because they are little known or simply for lack of adequate information. Well, we at Realigro are here for this. As you have now understood, we always want to give our readers the opportunity to know and find different alternatives and especially adapted to the needs of all. 

Why then leave out wonderful places when in reality they could also prove to be convenient? Today we have decided to take you just to the discovery of a place totally different from the usual. 

Want to know more? Well, the only thing you have to do is relax and note down every detail that we are about to report. The mini guide signed Realigro is about to begin. 

The solution to all your problems that will allow you to radically change your life is as follows: buy a property in Laos!

                    

We start with the first steps to be taken every time you find yourself in front of a foreign country: what are the documents needed to access it?

Necessary, with residual validity of at least 6 months from the date of entry into the country, is the Passport, along with the entry visa, even for short stays. However, there are no particular currency formalities and the main credit cards are accepted in all tourist activities - accommodation. 

After having well understood which are the regulations relating to the documentation, we move on to the second step. The local language. You know, this is a sore button that frightens in many, also considering the geographical location of the country, far from Western culture. Lao is the official language of the country, belonging to the group of Tai languages, but history teaches us that, having been Laos a French colony, has absorbed the culture and of course, even the language. So don't despair! Dust off some French grammar and everything will go well! 

Let's now get to the heart of our mini guide, trying to understand what the real cost of living in Laos is. Should I live here or open a business? Let's find out together! To make it easier to read the economic conditions in which the country finds itself, we have decided to include a small list of expenses related to basic necessities and local services. We remind you that the official currency in Laos is the Laotian Kip, which corresponds to 9,795.16 Euro. 

Lunch or Dinner in the Restaurant 2,19 € (21.450,00 LAK)

Milk (1 liter) 7.81 € (76,487.67 LAK)

Bread (500 grams) 1.41 € (13,789.66 LAK)

Eggs (12) 1.33 € (13,071.98 LAK)

Local cheese (1 kg) 12,18 € (119.331,94 LAK)

Chicken breast (1 kg) 1,24 € (12.194,39 LAK)

Red meat (1 kg) 3.97 € (38,918.27 LAK)

Apples (1 kg) 1,39 € (13.621,40 LAK)

Single ticket (local transport) 0,48 € (4.656,91 LAK)

Utilities (Electricity, Heating, Water, RSU )(app. 85 m2) 64,77 € (634.424,46 LAK)

And for the real estate sector? Well, the situation is quite diversified according to the type of contract you intend to sign. For a lease, the monthly rent is 534.33 € (5,233,800.00 LAK), while, to conclude a sale, the price per square meter is 561.50 €. 

We hope that our mini guide has been useful. We just have to wish you a good trip!
