It is much cheaper and easier to have all your copies and photos (where possible) done beforehand. What they don’t mention, is that you need 2 copies of your passport’s photo page. They staple one copy to the number they give you. That is the same number you use the next day to collect your passport.

The Royal Thai Consulate also require one copy of the Entry stamp page for Laos and the Lao Visa. You don’t go to the Thai Embassy for visas, but the consulate. Just tell the tuk-tuk drivers you want to apply for a visa, they know where to go. The Royal Thai Consulate only process application for visas in the morning from when they open at 8:30 am – 11:30 am and collection of passport are the next day only in the afternoons at 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm.
Remember to check for public holidays, as the visa processing is over 2 days.
