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,   Our Man in the Tropics
