Re ; Phu Du, Uttaradit - Paklay [ Paklai ] International Border Checkpoints

Recommended Posts

Dear Fellow Posters,

 

Is the Phu Du, Uttaradit, Thailand - Paklay [ Paklai ], Laos International Border  open for entry / departure & vice versa by EU passport holders ?

 

If "Yes", are there special considerations to factor in that are different than those involved with crossing the border at Friendship Bridge, Nong Khai, Thailand - Vientiane, Laos & vice versa ?

 

Thanking you in advance for all your helpful replies,

Information in the forum is quite old (2015, 2016) and at that time it was not possible to get a visa on arrival at the Laos checkpoint (only doable with getting visa ahead).

 

As I can hardly remember this name from the forum I am bit skeptic.

I hope someone has more recent info/experience.

There is no Lao visa on arrival available at that crossing.

It is number 24 on this list on the Lao Immigration website. See: http://immigration.gov.la/checkpoints.html

I assume if you had a Lao visa or qualify for a visa exempt entry for Laos (https://www.laos-guide-999.com/visa-exemption.html) you could use the crossing.

Great Information in those 2 links Ubonjoe ;

 

I wonder what is easiest AND cheapest way to get Visa & Extension & Multiple Re-Entry Permit so as to allow the EU & USA & Canadian & Australian bearer to re-enter Laos as often as requested without involving new visas or visa-exemption entry stamps for each event ?

Perhaps like having Multiple Re-Entry Permit & without fees for each re-entry & the departure also.

There would be no way to get around the entry and departure stamps. About the same for needing a new visa for entry to Laos which means a full page visa sticker if not visa exempt. There is no multiple entry visa for Laos that would be easy to get .

There is general info on Lao immigration website.

I have seen reports that one needs to use an agent in Lao for a "business visa" at a price - but I am not familiar with the conditions; maybe someone who has done this can advise. 

As pointed out, you'd still get stamped in/out each time, but at least no new sticker each time.
