Hi Guys, Could anyone let me know if it is possible to arrange visas for Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam from Chang Mai? I would rather arrange visas from there than bangkok if it is possible.

any info would be great. Thanks

Noppp.... those 3 countries only have Embassies in Bangkok. Actually, I am not sure that there's any embassy that provide visa service in Chiangmai except the U.S.Embassy. But, even for the U.S. one, I am not sure if it is still the same. Ever since the world has been changed, they issued the new rule requiring all applicants to go through some "special" technical process.... The only Embassy that has those facilities is in Bangkok.

You can get a Lao visa upon entry - assuming you're planning on entering via Chiang Khong. Vn visa you can get in Hanoi, Cambodia at Pakse.

I got my Lao visa in Chaing Mai. A travel agent actually take your passport and courier it overnight to Bangkok for a fee of like $6 US. This worked great for me. There are signs all over for this service.

I got my Vietnam visa while in BKK. I had a travel agent do it for like $2 US. Again, there are signs all over advertising the service.

Cambodia visa I got while at the Vietnam/Cambodia border, on site.

VN visa is $28-35 in Cambodia; more than that if you use a travel agent in BKK. Must be a mistake in typing.
