Am getting a bit confused on how to get a visa for Laos. I am wanting to enter from somewhere near Chang Rai in Thailand and spend two weeks in Laos moving south to exit back to Thailand nea Vientiene. Do I need to get a visa in Bangkok or can i get it when i cross, and is either way cheaper? I also have heard you need to get an exit stamp, do you get this at the exit or before?
Thanks for any help!!
Take a look at this site for info on Lao visas - they just recently changed the rules but this info is up to date.
As you'll see there's a range of options and costs.
Hope this helps

However note that the information may be a bit outdated as lots of visa terms change constantly.
Check the embassies but those are usually more strict than are actual visa officers on the borders.
