Get a new Lao visa at the Lao-Thai border w/o entering Thailand?
My Lao visa will expire in a week and I would like to spend 1 more month in Laos. I wonder if I can go to the Lao-Thai Friendship Bridge, exit Laos, and come back straight to Lao border to apply for a new tourist visa without entering Thailand. Or must I enter Thailand before re-entering Laos?
I am a Chinese national.
Thank you very much.
