What is your nationality? If you are eligible for visa exempt entry or visa on arrival, you should be able to do this safely via the Friendship Bridge from Vientiane to Nong Khai.

Swedish,I was coming to laos that way (first time by landborder) but the officer said that i have to go home or to another country but do you think i could have a visa on arrival at the border anyway (what is visa exempt entry)?

As a Swedish national, you do not need a visa to enter Thailand as a tourist. You can enter without one. This is known as "visa exempt entry" or "visa exemption". Some airports may create problems for people trying to enter visa exempt after a long period in Thailand, but you will be OK entering via the Friendship Bridge to Nong Khai. Note that you are only entitled to two visa exempt entries by land in a calendar year, so do not rely on this as a way to spend a lot of time in Thailand in the future.

Thank you very much for the information! I just went to the consulate to get a 60 day visa instead of 30 days arrival and i really thought it will be easier (is it any law that say´s that you only can stay 6 months in thailand with turistvisa or is it just a lottery)?

A friend of mine recently got VOID WITHOUT PREJUDICE in Phnom Penh. And there is another stamp "DENIED Applicant has entered Thailand frequently and for long duration using tourist visas".

 

But originally they took his passport, the fee and processed the visa, and then stamped it void.

 

(I'm in a similar situation, long time in Thailand on TV, so I exchanged keys with said friend so we can access each other's room.)

It worked well for me with arrival visa (2019) and also the extension jan 2020 (thanks for the tips!) Now i´m thinking of getting an other kind of visa but i think it´s a jungle with Business visa/ starting a company and workpermit, o-visa etc.. Any recommendations? And if it´s not working out soon - can i make another landborder + extension twice in 2020 if i can´t make it happen soon enough with another type of visa (just want to know if <deleted> happens along the way?)

I will be careful with the visa exempts, but do you think i can get a 60 days visa in another country when i got this red stamp in my passport at vientiane?

That would be very hard to predict especially with you history of stays here.

I would say no for about any of the embassies or consulates within the region.

The only place where I might say you could get one would be in your home country.

You best option may be to get a new passport to eliminate your history of visas and stays that a embassy or consulate can see in your current passport.
