    Is it possible to get visa for longer than 15 days at this crossing? If not how difficult is it to extend visas once in country?

    Hi Redmill,
    From the Visa FAQ:

    "ALL visas on arrival are now valid for 30 days. Be wary of being stamped in for 15 days on a 30 day visa."

    and:

    "For those planning on visiting Pakse from Thailand, the Chong Mek, Vang Tao crossing is the most convenient. From Thailand a regular bus runs from Ubon Ratchathani to the border town of Chong Mek taking 1-1.5 hours. Sometimes you may be required to change buses as Phibun Mangsahan depending on the bus caught. Once deposited at Chong Maek it is a five minute walk through each crossing and regular songtheaws run from Vang Tao to Pakse, taking about one hour. Visa on arrival is available."
