Travel Tips : International Border Crossing with Motorbikes at Huai Kon

Huai Kon border crossing in Nan - Thailand

2016 : I am just back from checking Huai Kon International border-crossing in Nan province. By the Thai immigration I was informed that the Lao side is still closed for motorbikes (and bicycles). It seems that there is a problem with the Xaraboury Immigration office, so that means all border crossings in Xaraboury are probably closed to for motorbikes. That is not only Huai Kon (Nan province) but also Phu Dao (Uttaradit province) and Thali (Loei province). Hopefully this problem will be solved in the near future. But I would not hold my breath for it. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.

Update May 2020 : Due to the Corona Crisis at the moment the border is totally closed (except for cargo transport). But the problem with motorbikes crossing the border is still the same. And worse the Lao immigration is not giving a Visa On Arrival anymore, although that might change again in the near future.
