Postal communication has always been in great need, and the People’s Democratic Republic of Laos is not an exception. So, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications was established in Laos to meet people's needs. The national postal company offers a standard list of services: both domestic and international shipping (economy delivery, standard and express post), financial, and information features.
Laos Post offers different services, aimed at meeting people's needs, so one can choose what suits his/her needs better. So, let's have a look at those services to get to know more.
Laos Post offers postal services for the distribution of various printed materials, like magazines, postcards, newspapers, etc. (both domestically and internationally). Laos Post uses its own buses to provide quick and safe delivery. Airlines and regional buses are also used. Besides, Laos Post can deliver parcels to many destinations around the globe.
It's possible to send various items to different places, as there are many destinations available. All you have to do to send a package/letter is to leave it at the post office or simply put it in the mailbox. The weight limit for this service is 2 kilograms. There are several types of items accepted, including a letter, a postcard, a small package, and a printed matter. The price for this service may be different, as it depends on the weight of your delivery, the destination country, and the transportation type.
Express Mail Service is usually used for delivery product samples, documentation, and so on, delivered in accordance with the rules and conditions set by the post office. The length of a package should not exceed 1.50 meters, but it may be different for different countries. The maximum weight is 20 kilograms, but for some countries it can be up to 30 kg or 31.5 kg. There are more than 80 destinations accessible.
In addition to general envelopes, Lao Post also produces a wide range of other types of envelopes to meet the needs of customers. There are different envelopes, aerograms, and so on.
Postage stamps are used for international air freight payments at a special postal rate (fixed price). Lao Post has a huge number of postal stamps of all types, so the collectors will certainly be interested in those. One can have a look at the gallery of Lao Post stamps on the official website. People are looking for more, so nowadays Lao Post is working on postcards and souvenirs, so we can expect new products in the near future.
The company also has several financial services, including:
Laos Post can also help people to pay for electricity, water supply, or telephone. It is possible to pay electricity, water supply, and telephone bills all over the country, either in cash or check. The customer receives a receipt from the staff once the procedure is completed.
There are two types of packages that can be tracked. The main criterion is the weight, so a parcel of a total weight of fewer than 2 kilograms may not be tracked. EMS parcels are always registered, so they receive tracking numbers. Those looking for an opportunity to check the status of a parcel find Lao Post tracking very convenient. So, the Lao Post tracking number usually starts with two letters, followed by nine digits and two more letters in the end. Here are several examples:
To check the current location of a parcel, all one has to do is to enter the tracking number in a field on a "Tracking" page on the official website.
The delivery time may be as different, as destinations offered by this company. There are several factors influencing the delivery time. The most crucial ones are the size and weight of a parcel, and the destination itself. If the destination is not remote, the delivery may take about two weeks. Speaking about more distant areas, one may wait for a delivery from 15 to 45 days. In some cases (if there are any delays because of bad weather or customs problems) it may take up to 90 days for a parcel to be delivered.
Those who have never used postal services may find it difficult to send goods via any postal operator. For such people, there are many convenient tools on the Laos Post website. For example, one can find nearby post offices and rates. Besides, you can have a look at the list of destinations accessible, get to know more about the company, and track your shipment there.
