A successful visit to Savannakhet to obtain a ME O visa based on marriage. Journey started with a flight from CM (7.15am CNX) to Khon Kaen (2,810 baht return- AirAsia) and then a minibus journey (240 baht) from Khon Kaen bus station to Mukdahan bus station . Caught the international Laos bus from Mukdahan to Savannakhet (45 baht each way). 1 x picture 1,500 baht I needed for the Laos visa. Arrived at the Avalon hotel (6 GBP per night - 2 nights through Agoda) in Savannakhet at 15.00. Probably would stay at the Aura next time, but cannot complain about the cost of the Avalon. Food was poor though. The next day the Thai consulate in Savannakhet opened at 09.00. Submitted all my documents, Marriage cert copy, (took the original as well, but was not needed - but good to take, just in case) Wife's house book and ID copied, signed and dated. Front page of my passport and 2 pictures (35 mm x 45 mm pictures) and of course the 5,000 baht fee. Out by 09.20. The next day, arrived at the Thai consulate at 13.30 (Opens at 14.00) and collected my ME O visa. Out by 14.10.<span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Caught a tuktuk (100 baht) to the border. Crossed Laos and Thai border by 15.10. Caught a taxi to Mukdahan bus station and caught a minibus at 16.00 to Khon Kaen (240 Baht). Arrived in Khon Kaen at 20.10. Stayed in the Garden Room hotel (near the Khon Kaen airport - 550 Baht booked through Agoda).The next day caught a taxi using Grab (75 baht) to the airport for the 13.15 from Khon Airport to CM. Arrived in CM at 14.10. All done, relatively painless</span>
