You can get a Laos visa on arrival at most of the main land borders - have a look at this link.

If you do need to apply for one in advance, the nearest Laos embassy is in Paris; if you are going to Thailand or Vietnam beforehand you can get one at the embassies in Bangkok or Hanoi.

Yeah exactly as Bex said,or:

Assuming you are going to be flying into Bangkok you can do it on pick up next day basis at the Laos embassy.

There are many options. :)

There is no need to get a Laos Visa prior to arrival. Either flying in, or crossing via any of thre land boarders, you get a 30 day visa. If you do a land crossing though, it will cost you 1,000 Thai Baht, about $30, and a passport photo is required. If flying in, the Visa fee is waivered, and Immigration takes a snap shot picture of you at Passport Control. Flying in is definitely less paonful way of doing it too :)
