      thai tourist visa

      Laos Feb 1, 2017 at 8:19 PM

      hello everyone,

      Kindly asking on how long the tourist visa application takes since the thai consulate in Vientiane has been shutdown. Right now Thai embassy is only avaiable for that but it might take a bit longer and also more requirements. Please confirm this or if process is still fast and smooth, cheers!

    • Entering Laos through Taichang?

      Khoueng Phongsali Sep 14, 2010 at 8:11 AM

      I plan to enter Laos from Vietnam through the international check piont at Taichang/Tay Trang, which is located near Dien Bien Phu of Vietnam or Muang Mai of Laos. However,the web site of explains that a Visa-on-Arrival is not available at the check point.

      I am a Korean and a Korean is exempted from a Laos visa. I wonder whether I can enter Laos through that check point or not. I think theoretically I should be able to do so but the reality there is? I am afraid that the facility at that check point is pretty poor and only the people holding a visa or neighbouring countries such as Vietnam or China are allowed to do so?

      What is the situation there? Anybody knows about it?
