Is Savannakhet Tourist Visa notice still up?

Recommended Posts

I remember seeing a sign they put up in Savannakhet about them rejecting tourist visas if someone has one too many.

 

Than I read it had been taken down.

 

Is Savannakhet still a good place to go when you have the right supporting documents?

 

Cheers

I dont think that that was an official sign , but yes, can still get TV's at savanakhet , 3-4 is the maximum though, before you get a red stamp

Applies to each Embassy/Consulate .

Get three from Savanakhet and then go to Vientiane and get another three .

Three TV's is usually quite safe to get , some people get four and some a red stamp .

Three is OK, the fourth is a risk (of a red stamp)

I dont think that works anymore I think they are starting to calculate your time here over the year.   I had a new passport 2 Metv visas back to back with only 5 days in my home country.

After staying here 14 mnths pretty much continually I went for my first setv in vientiene and received the blue stamp.

Another russian girl had 1 setv from her home country and 1 from vientiene previously. Her second trip to vientine she got the blue stamp.  Funny thing though the Thai immi at Friendship bridge just lets everyone through who recieved the visa no questions asked.

Thanks for your report.

It seems things have changed in Vientiane, for the worse.

Blu stamp at the first visa, never heard of this before.

People could get 3, 4 or even 5 setv from Vientiane before recieving the blu stamp.

Big difference with the immi here verses bkk or dmk.  No requests to see 20k, no questions why you live here so long, no questions why so many visas in a row. No questions about where your staying or they didnt even care how people where dressed, just stamp in and next, for the 5 minibus loads of us from all different countries.

Its interesting how they make decisions of who gets the blue stamp or not on their visa at vientiene as they didnt even see me as my passport was handed to the tour group leader of the visa company and he handed them all over  in a bundle to the consulate there.

Big T73, where is this? Which Friendship bridge? 

Earlier last year my Tourist Visa application was rejected by the consulate in Phnom Phen - despite having all supporting documents; money, airline in and out, chanote, attorney, monthly income... so I contacted my attorney (who owns my land) and he refered me to a Thai immigration official who knows us from Mae Sai (now in BKK). She said to simply fly in. So I did. No problem. The next time though I was selected for a secondary interview in the office (arriving at BKK); the polite woman official suggested I get another passport due to the fact I had so many stamps in it - and running out of pages. I know... ... I know... ... I am trying to afford a retirement visa and/or wife. Good luck everybody.

Friendship bridge is between Laos vientine and Nong khai. 

 

Have you thought about getting married and a multi non o from savanaket laos?   You could get married within the week.
