Hi all
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!!!
Thanks

ps.

I'm a bit envious of someone about to embark on a 3 month journey to SEA.

But, have a great journey.

Cheers

Hi Bruce
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!!

Hi Lyndall,

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

Cheers
