Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine: possible

Travellers are permitted to bring into Laos a quantity of methadone (or any other prescribed substitution substance) sufficient for the duration of stay. They have to carry with them an English-language letter from their home prescriber which clearly supports their need for the medication (specimen letter: click HERE) and a copy of the
original prescription form.
