    ^ Correct, or get a new one. It only takes a day or 2, not like those nasty U.K bastards that take over a month.

    I know that but there are restrictions when using a border pass. Passports dont have those restrictions. Thats why i asked about passports and not other ways to enter laos.

    6 months on passports Local Information - Australian Embassy

    No restrictions, they fill out form, have photos taken and pay a small fee.

    We go to Chong mek and have been doing so for the last 15 years and never had a problem going over the border for a holiday.

    Not sure why you post a Australian embassy website when you partner is Thai.?

    2015 i believe with Asean coming onboard the Borders will become more open for other countries as well.

    Just get a new passport. No point risking it, and you will end in problems in other countries in any case.

    I know, hassle in Suk or whereever your embassy is but they are the bureaucracy.

    Not anytime soon for most people I'm guessing and to be pedantic ASEAN has been around quite sometime - 1967 I believe. The Asean Economic Community is the latest attempt to create something that as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts

    You may have heard of European union.

    There's always huge money to be made in in a) misery and b) unnecessary level of bureauracy. Functioning nation states have always been the best solution. Co-operation is always good and Asians arent as thick as euros and lessons have been learned so this isn't necessarily that bad thing. But certainly there are some with very deep pockets that hope to repeat the... success.
