    I have been working in Laos for the last 12 months and want to bring my 640 motard into the country.Although there is a 250cc limit law here I do see the ocasional big bike on the road.
    Is it possible to import a 640cc bike into Laos

    Vehicles Prohibited to import into Lao PDR:
    1. Based on Notification of Cabinet of Prime Minister Office No 955/CPO, dated 8 July 1991: All kinds of right driving cars.

    2. Based on Notification of Ministry of Transport, Post and Construction No 1552/MTPC dated 8 July 1996: All kinds of motorbikes over 250 cc.

    However, as they say, a lot is possible if you know the right people and are willing to smooth the way. Ask around in Laos and maybe you will be lucky.

    What's the logic behind the 250cc limit?
