Last time I tried to enter Laos via the ferry to Thaket I was rejected on Laos side. They wanted to see a "Vehicle Registration Certificate" besides the green book. This paper is issued at any "Department of Land Transport" (where you get your driver's license and can pay the bike's annual tax) but it is best to go where you have your bike registered to avoid extra nagging from the staff. The paper costs 25 bath. Bring your "green book", passport and signed copies of your passports first page and VISA stamps. Two friends of mine got across the friendship bridge in Nongkhai into Laos with this paper. I recommend anyone going to Laos to get one of these papers just in case.

I was talking about taking a bike registered in Thailand over to Laos.

Thanks for the info on cars however.

This must be a new proceedure, I have entered Laos with Thai registered bikes many times and have never been asked for this document, just proof of ownership, details on entering Laos with a motorcycle are in the link below:

I never had any use of this paper until May when they did not let me in at Thaket for the lack of this paper. The risk they demand it seems slim but if they do it is worth the 25 bath to have one.

Could you photograph a copy of the required document and attach it here?

For motor vehicles they require you to have the document below






All the information you need is in the link below:'

Problem is they dont give out ITP's any more..


They give a one page letter translation, which also has the Thai alphanumerics in Romanized thai.. You need the same doc to get a carnet.

Thanks NR - i want to see what Chiang Mai motor vehicle dept. make of this.
If it doesnt go over straight away.. Try emphasizing the need for romanized alphabet for the plate. I know the carnets from the UK require this and I think it may be needed to properly do the malay / insurance side ??

Phuket DMV is familiar with this doc.
