  • Importing liquor products for distribution in the Lao PDR is allowed only through an entity established legally under the laws of the Lao PDR. As liquor products fall under the category of “Food” under Law on Food No. 04/NA, dated 15 May 2004 (“Law on Food”), approval for importing liquor products shall be granted by the Department of Food and Drug, Ministry of Public Health. The Law on Food requires that all imported products must be safe for consumer health. The quality and standard of the container, packaging and labor must also be certified by the Management and Food Inspection Organization.
