I may well have imagined this but I'm sure I read somewhere that Thai and Lao citizens can cross the border freely at Nong Khai for day trips to sell goods etc.

Does anyone have any more info or links if this is the case.

Thanks

Their Thai ID card (plus signed photocopy) and two 2" photographs will suffice. They'll get a 3 day temporary border pass.

I think the fee is still 30 baht.

Thanks Paul,

Now I just have to worry about the re-entry permit for me.
