    I am currently in Laos and need a bank account (EUR prefered) with an ATM card to withdraw cash. Would be thankful for any advice or recommendation.

    I use a German Bank called DKB they offer expats of all nationalities a free account(no minimum deposit) with free Visa Card and free cash withdrawal worldwide include Laos (even refunding you extra ATM fees that some banks take 20.000 or 40.000 kip). The interesting thing is that its even possible to open the account while you are in Laos because they have a local notary partner. Unfortunately the registration form is German only. I can offer help, just email me at calbo@live.com

    BFL (Bank Franco Lao) offers kip/baht/doller/euro account. You won't be able to withdraw euros at any ATM in Lao but only kip, whatever the bank.
