    Dual 1-year Thai / Laos visas. Permissible?

    Mods: apols if this is a repeat post. I just want to be sure that it gets the best chance of a reply. Please feel free to merge and purge at will.

    If I have a 1-year non B with a WP attached to it, and a multiple re-entry, can I get a 1-year Laos visa (in Laos) without it upsetting the authorities on either side of the borders?

    What visas you have for other countries make no impact on your visa request for Thailand or Laos. (Unless the countries are at war)

    I can see no reason for any problem, getting a one year visa for Laos is easy, try Saiawardz who are a company who do them, they charge $650 USD and say that you work for them.

    Dunno why you'd pay $650 USD for a dodgy Lao Visa when you can get a 30 day Tourist Visa @ any Lao border crossing?

    ^ let me know if that works out. Can't find anywhere cheaper than $650 right now.

    Because I'm fed up of wasting entire passport pages every month

    Yes. You can have a long term Thai visa one year or even 5 years visa if you need it and still live anywhere in the world you wish. Just make sure you have a re-entry permit, multiple or single before you leave Thailand. A 5 year visa incidently is called an Elite Visa and can be issued on request on arrival to Thailand, usually Bangkok . The cost for the EV is I believe the princely sum of one million baht. It could be more as my superior at immigration offce where I work says it costs 10 million, but I think she's made an error. Howvever the holder of an EV still has to report in every 90 days and in addition, at the same time, must complete a (free) TM 7 application to stay a further 90 days. As far as I am aware there is no need for an EV holder to have a re-entry permit.

    Cost is 1,500,000 baht according to their website
    ThailandElite.com - Support


    Also it says on the website that the fees still apply, so you still have to pay the 1900 baht for every 90 day extension.
