Each year, there are thousands of Hmong from the United States and other countries go back to Laos to visit their relatives, friends, families, and to celebrate the Hmong New Year events. The Lao goverment issue Lao Visa to many of them to enter Laos but the Lao goverment denied to issue Lao Visa to many of them. The question was asking by Richard Wanglue Vang, News Anchor for Suab Hmong News, to Mai Sayaovongs, LPDR Ambassador to the U.S.A., “Why and what reasons the Lao goverment denied to issue Lao Visa to many Hmongs so they could enter Laos?”.
“Especially the Hmong, they have names that are alike. When his/her name matched our (blacklist) record and if the date of birth matched, we cannot issue a Lao Visa to him/her to enter Laos. Other situation when his/her name matched our (blacklist) record and our record does not have the date of birth go with the name then we cannot issue a Lao Visa for him/her too. We will need to work together on this issue. We have worked and resolved cases like this for many Hmong in the past. We, the LPDR Ambassador, are willing to work together with those that are having this issue” said Mai Sayaovongs.
