Hi eoinfitz,

No special requirements to my knowledge -- though if you're really concerned, I'd suggest contacting a Lao Embassy just to be sure.

Closest border crossing to Chiang Mai is the Chiang Khong/Huay Xai crossing -- there are direct buses from Chiang Mai or you can overnight at Chiang Rai.

More information on border crossings here.
