Is it possible to get a visa at the border at Bo Y when crossing from Viet Nam?

I've just re-read my prvious post and realised how abrupt it is! We're in the final week of getting ready for 3 months in SE Asia so my brains are a bit fried!
Can anyone help with my query about visas at Bo Y? Only 5 more sleeps to go!!!

Go to the first post in this section and everything you ever wanted to know about visa's is revealed...
In case your anticipation for a great holiday is fudging your rationale, go to:
Also, read some of the other posts ( I typed in 'Bo Y' in the Search Travelfish' box up on the left of the grey area)..
Thanks - have read both of these before - both have good info and one describes visa requirements when crossing from Laos to VN but we'll be going the other way.
Can you help Somtam?
Thanks for travel wishes - will have a BeerLao for you!!

Sorry, I missed this one. I don't have firm info on this, but would say I am almost sure it is available. I know that's not much use, but it's the best I can offer sorry. Our researcher crossed from Laos to Vietnam twice using that crossing, but on both times he forgot to check for Laos visa on arrival... yeah I know - can't get good help these days!
Have you contacted the Laos embassy in your country and asked them?
Alternatively, wait till you're in SE Asia and get a visa there (eg. in Hanoi).
I saw this website that may help - it says visa on arrival is OK (but it's not a gov't website):
Hope this helps
Many thanks to you both. Dont think I'll sack you just yet somtam!!
I think your link answers my question Bruce - I'll trust that it's accurate.
Will let you know how it pans out.
