Please,

I have read a dozen different websites, contacted a few agencies, but still I get mixed answers, so I thought that the best way to get AN ACCURATE answer would be through a fellow traveller.
Can anyone, PLEASEEE tell me whether it is possible to get a VISA-ON-ARRIVAL TO LAOS, in the overland border between Cambodia (Veun Kham) and Laos (Dong Calor)?

Please please please fellow travellers help me out!

Thank you so much!

I agree there is lot of contradictory inforomation on the web - a lot of it out of date. However it is now possible to obtain a visa on arrival on the Cambodia/Lao border (I believe this has been for the past 18 months or so). I crossed this border last around 3 months ago and got a voa (UK passport). The cost varies depending on nationality. I hate this border crossing 10 times more than Poipet for all their $1 here, $2 there "exit stamp", "health check", "entry stamp", "overtime" scams. Give me Aranya/Poipet any day!

I'm afraid I can't remember the precise name of the border "towns"/shacks, but I believe the crossing point was moved slightly in order to facilitate more people crossing and VOA's. However, there's only one Cambodia/Laos border crossing and if you're travelling from Kratie/ Stung Treng up to Laos you can't really go wrong. Most people just refer to the border as being Stung Treng on the Cambodian side as that's the closest town to the crossing.
