Hi guys.... Just planning my route round SEA what I'm wanting to do is enter Laos form thailand where I will get a visa on the border, then travel down the mekong river via slow boat to Luang Prabang I'm then going to travel around northern/central laos and hopefully then head over to Vietnam, Hanoi where I will travel south. What I was wondering is if anyone know's is if I can re enter Laos from Vietnam on the same visa I originally purchased from the border as long as it's within the 30 days of issue????? Any help on the matter is muchly apprciated, also if anyone is planning a similar route or will be in the area around the end of June/July/August, would be great to here from you....!!!!!!!! Thanks all and happy travels x :):)

I think you can re-enter as long as it is within the visa dates, Laos should not be a problem, as you can always get another visa on entry.

I'm not sure if you are a UK resident, but I have to get my visa for Vietnam before I leave. This covers you for 30 days. You make the decision when getting it on whether to get a single entry or multi entry visa. Obviously if you get the multi entry you can come and go as you please as long as it is within the visa dates.

I am heading over there in September...I leave September 6th for Bangkok.... how long are you around for?

Hey Jsteevey,

Well I arrive in Bangkok 6th Septmeber, and was planning on heading north to the Border with Laos, but then my plans can and will change!!

I'm not sure about the FMP, although it looks awesome, I'm still just not sure!

I fly over to Sydney in December, but again this might be earlier or later!

It would be good to meet you somewhere for a cold pint?

Are you on fb?
