I got one three weeks ago. Bring the original of your marriage certificate, the one with the border of flowers and hearts. I was asked for it along with the copies.

I pretty sure its business as usual in Sav.
Some things have changed after the bombings , mate just back from ranong his tourist viss expired and against my advice did a border run.
He got his 15 days. Said the immigration was empty at the port and they were very polite and helpfull.

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings."

Done it last month

Covered parking on the left just before the border. 250 baht per day.

Buy a bus ticket for 50 baht (on the left before you stamp yourself out).
Stamp passport out and go round the back and wait for bus.
Jump on bus and head to Laos side.
Jump off bus and go to the left where you see a Visa on arrival kiosk. Fill out arrival card, hand the nice chap a photo and 1500 Baht. Ignore where people are handing in their passports to stamp into Laos because the POA kiosk does it for you.
Jump back on bus and get dropped off at bus station (keep looking out the window on the right and you will see the Thai consulate).
Loads of Tuk Tuks at the bus station. Give hotel name (I stayed the Hoong Thip, in the new wing) and pay the good man 100 baht and when dropped off tell him to pick you up the next day at 8;45am.
Knock about bored till the next day and get in your prearranged tuk tuk to the consulate.
At consulate hand in paperwork and original marriage certs with 2 photos and 5k baht. Return to hotel and get pissed until 2pm next day.
Make a deal with the tuk tuk to take you to the consulate, wait for you and then drop you off at the border (200 baht).
Then do everything you done at the start in reverse to get back to the car.

Bogon tip #462, 463 and 464

Print off and complete all of your application/visa shit before you go and take a pen because the bus doesn't wait for you an you might have another half hour to kill till the next one.

Lots of people stay at the Avalon, but it's too far to walk from there to restaurants bars of interest.

The old wing of the Hoong Thip, which is across the road from the new wing, has a disco (in the loosest possible terms) with ladies that might be happy to sit with you for a small fee.

^ Honestly I was on the beer Laos all day and made it to the disco around 9pm. A nice lady asked me if I wanted to choose a girl to sit with me, but I declined because I wanted to case the joint.

I buckled approximately 8 minutes later and a nice Laos maiden kept me company, drinking together and pretending to have a laugh until closing. Paid the bill and went to the toilet, finished what I was doing and walked out. Went back to hotel, got to my room and sat on the bed for a bit. had a ciggie and then thought sod it, go get the girl. Walked back across the road and the place was in darkness! No lie, they must have locked the place up in 10 minutes. Turned around and went back to hotel cursing myself and had an angry wank.

The End.

This is what I handed in...
Copy of your front page of passport
Copy of your TM47? thing. The white slip stapled in your passport
Copy of your last entry stamp in passport
Copy of wife ID card
Copy of Tabien Baan (blue book)
Copy of Marriage Cert and Kor Ror 2
And most importantly, the original marriage cert and Kor Ror 2 (it's the other piece of paper that comes with the flowery marriage cert.
Oh...and 5k baht

You and the missus sign each copy, and you are good to go.

Have photocopying across the road if I have ballsed up anything and they request more

Apologies if some of my terminology is incorrect, but you should know what I mean.

Good luck. Hope you're a drinker or enjoy going to dinosaur fossil museums?
