Laos visa on arrival

amineko (9 posts) • 0

Just wanted to confirm that I can get a Laos visa on arrival at the mohan-boten border to luang namtha. Everything I've read says it's possible, but just wanted to see if anyone has recently crossed into Laos there and can confirm there were no hassles.

Just crossed & recrossed Lao border - no problems with visas at border for most nationalities, but nearly 30 nationalities cannot get visa at border - mostly African countries, including Nigera; also Turkey, don't remember the others.
