Exactly what papers do I need to make things smooth(relatively)?
Which border crossings will work for this?
Can I get a visa at all crossings?
Thanks!!!

Dear New User dano;

First try reading the “New User” section, particularly “Welcome; Read this first!” Link removed

You will find the links to bike rentals and also a link on crossing borders. As for getting a visa at ALL crossings; there are certain designated international crossing points and many Thai only. You can get visas on arrival at the international crossing points.

Also do a search (upper right hand corner) “search” or just read some of the existing posts. We like to help out people on this site but you need to do a little research also.

In short, you cannot take a non-plated bike across the border. Most rentals do not have plates or registrations. You cannot currently cross the friendship bridge from Nong Khai to Vientiane with a Thai registered motorcycle.

You can go to Laos and rent a bike in Vientiane.

All this is covered in existing topics that you should find easily.

Good luck.
