If you are a foreigner and want to work in Laos, you must hold a business visa, a work permit and a residence card. It's best to start this process of paperwork while you are still in your home country, as it can take months to get things ready. Thus you must find a Lao employer in advance, as the employer will have to obtain approval from the ministry as well.

Remember that as a foreigner you are expected to work only in jobs that require special expert skills (such as a highly skilled engineer). This is to make sure Lao citizens are not out-competed in their own country.

How about these for visa services: https://laos.visahq.com/ (note, I am not affiliated with this company in any way).

Asian countries are currently working on implementing the Asean Common Visa, which will make it easier for Asian nationals to travel and work around the region. Could be worth waiting for?

As johnbkk writes, you should first:

1) Find an employer in Laos.

then:

2) Contact the Laos Embassy (if you are in Germany, you have a Laos embassy in Berlin), and fill in the applications for visa, work permit and residence card. I think the embassy will contact your future employer in Laos.

wait a few months, and your papers should be ready.

I could be wrong, but that's how I understand the process :)
