Thanks for the informative video, amazing how different crossings have different charges, i crossed at Huay Khon near Nan a few weeks ago on the Thai side no charges, on the Laos side we got hit 35 dollars (or 1,400 baht) 120 baht immigration and 250 baht customs fee's.

BTW i exited at Chiang Khong arrived at 6.15 PM, no fee's either side and no escort !!!

Thanks r4s, that will come in handy.
I'll make the three guys that haven't been study this then they can sort it all out when we get there in just over 3 weeks.

Office at 24 seconds, I think that might be Immigration? They are filling out the TM Immigration documents?

Coming back in may be a bit different, no fee for Thai visa all the paperworks done just has to be handed in for both you and bike.
I talked to a Russian guy who crossed into Laos that day also, he had it pretty much identical as I did. It does seem every border has it's own set of rules all throughout SEA with any number of things that can and can't happen, I knew that when I posted this but it gives the uninitiated some idea on the process at the Chiang Khong border post, I had no idea what to expect and even if I would be knocked back from entering Laos all together so hopefully it helps someone behind me be a bit more at ease with it..
