Visa run to Vientiane Laos, part 2
Apply for Visa and get back to Thailand.
The next day i was at the consulate 7:50, at that time the gates was opened and 50 people was waiting in line to apply for Visa already. I spoke to a guy, he said he was at the consulate the day before, at 11:00 am, but at that time the queue was already full and the consulate was closed, so he had to come back the next day. If you go by air-plane, i advise you plan for staying an extra day in Laos if the queue to long and you have to come back next day, or you meet other delays.
Outside the consulate there is a lot of hustlers who want to help you, with everything. They make copies, take passports photos, you need for your applications, help you fill out the papers. When i was not interested, in their help to do my Visa, they could even provide me with female company, stay clear of these hustlers, you do not need them.
It is very easy to fill out the papers, and inside the consulate there is a copy/photo service, and they can also for a fee fill out the papers for you, and at 1/2 price of what the hustlers outside charge. And also signs inside the consulate warn you, saying it is at your own risk to use the hustlers outside.
When you get inside the consulate you will find the copy service in the building to the left. To the right you will find rows of chairs, in front of the chairs are some tables, and on the left hand table you find the application forms.
Also in front of the chairs you will find some bulletin board, where there is sample forms already filled out so you can see how to do.
When you have done your papers, sit down at the chairs, the queue start at the front row the and wait for your turn, the staff will collect the your application at the table in front of the chairs.
Once you have submitted your form you will be given a number and you have to come back next day to collect your visa and passport.
