Will this then reduce the lengthy 6 weeks duration for approving or denying Non-B visas?

It is next day service at Vientiane to get a single entry non-b visa.

I suspect you are confusing an application for non-b visa at a embassy with getting a extension of stay at a immigration office here.

The Facebook announcement says, "From 1st February 2019, the Embassy will no longer accept walk-in applications or applications through agents."

 

While not technically agents, visa run companies will be affected by this new policy because the only people getting on the van to go from Thailand to Vientiane from now on will be those with confirmed appointments, no last minute passengers.  It remains to be seen how long it will take to get an appointment.  

 

On YouTube, NDTVi vlogged his visa run to Vientiane.  The visa run company he used filled out all the paperwork, included transportation, hotel, and visa for a flat fee (7900 baht).  All he had to do was stand in line an hour or two at the Vientiane Embassy to turn in the application documents and return the next day to pick up his passport.  NDTVi said that there were two ques - one for agencies (which he used) and the other non-agency.  He said the non-agency line was shorter but it moved slower because people didn't know how to fill out the forms correctly.

Just checked with a Visa run company. When you make a booking they will book your appointment with Vientiane. They are also starting a visa run service to Savannakhet

Well, I only hope for the sake of those intending to obtain a visa from Vientiane that their new online appointment system works a lot better than the shambles that is the British Embassy online appointment system in Bangkok!

Other than having to wait for 2 or 3 weeks for an appt, the few times I used the B E with the appt system, it worked ok.

Seemly, there is no connection between countries or computer systems in this story. Perhaps an opportunity to opine about the irrelevance?
