What is your correct phone number?
Dear Lao Embassy,
Your phone number (02) 852.5759 is incorrect. Could you please update your page please. Further on, may I ask how a Syrian citizen can apply for a tourist visa to Laos, i.e. what is needed (e.g. an invitation letter), cost for the visa and how long time does it take to get the visa?
Looking forward to hearing from you asap and thanks a lot.
Best regards,

There is e-mail hacker in Manila
I have recently received an e-mail from one of my e-mail friend list, but in fact it comes from a hacker. The mail states that "my friend" is now in Manila to take care of his cousin that need to be operate for a bone marrow transplantation which cost US$8,000, and he need me to loan him an amount of US$3,000 (he said to send money via Western Union or Money Gram only and refuse when i try to contact my friend's wife about transferring money). I know that it is a "hacker" because i call my friend and he is still in Vientiane.
I attach here the details of e-mail conversation as follow:


I really don't want to disturb you about this but I had no one else to turn to. I'm in Philippines to see my cousin who lives here. she's critically ill and needs family support. She is diagnosed with (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) - a type of Blood Cancer in 2005 and she had been undergoing treatment since. The chemotherapy treatment was going fine until last week when the doctor noticed that the disease has relapsed and the only way she can survive is by undergoing a BMT (Bone Marrow Transplantation). My sister whose marrow matched she has agreed to be the donor and she will be undergoing the transplant soon at the Medical Center Hospital Philippines Manila. The estimate for the transplant is $8,000. I have already spent approx. $5,000 towards her treatment. I request you to lend out a helping hand and support me with a loan of $3,000 because i am out of cash right now. Since I don't know your financial status at the moment, any kind of help whatsoever will be deeply appreciated. Your help and support will give her a chance to live a normal life once again. There is nothing called a small help when the heart giving it is big. Any amount will be accepted with gratitude and paid back after the surgery. Please let me know how much you can loan me so that i can provide you with the details to get the money to me and, I will pay back as soon as I return.

Thanks for your help."

I was replying as follow:

"Don't worry much about the expenses. I will do what I can to help her. I know how much it is to make a person survive from such degenerative disease. I have no problem to let you borrow the money. Do you want me to transfer the money to the Philippines? or tell your wife, Souk, to come and take the money?"

What they answer is:

"Thanks for your help and concern, You don't need to give my wife the money. The only way i can receive the money here is through western union money transfer or moneygram because i can't access my bank account here. Here's my details below.

Receiver Name: ..........
Address : 2150 Roxas Boulevard, Cor. Quirino Ave., Malate, Manila, 1004 Philippines

As soon as you send me the money please email me the details or attach the payment receipt to me."

After reading this, i know that there is something wrong with this mail and this is what i reply them:

"I forgot to tell you that my uncle is also working in the Philippines. He works for the ministry, some thing like police. I will contact him and you can meet him at the Lao embassy to get the money from him. I will confirm the appointment.

What is your address and phone number?"

After that i never heard from them.

Thank you all to read this long post. But this really happen few days ago. Please be careful if you receive such e-mail.

Sometime in 2009 my wife and I went to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. When we were in Phenom Pehn, we went to a Bus Company for a trip in going to Laos via Pakse. At the Bus company we were advised to pay $3 dollars for a visa fee before they would issue a ticket. I argue with the ticket issuer because as far as i know as Filipino and Philippines as well as the country of Laos is a member of the Association of SouthEast Asian Nations (ASEAN) which country members, its constituents are VISA FREE they only need passport to enter ASEAN . This action of the people (Bus Terminal) in Phenom Pehn should be look into as this affects the tourism industry of Laos. In short, we cancell our trip in going to Laos. I would appreciate it very much if somebody would enlighten me on this matter. Thank you very much
