I have been here for three years but have moved from VTE to LP. I have the business via "sponsor" letter but I need to activate it. I have been told that I have to go from LP to VTE - cross the Friendship bridge - re enter Laos - fly back up to LP. In short - This cannot be right, can it? My employer paid the $950 for the B2 and now I have to pay another $400 for flights and a hotel for the night in VTE. Does anyone know if it can be done in LP or cheaper. I know getting the bus back down to VTE would be a lot cheaper but as the 13 is now a death trap because of the apalling state of the road, I think it safer to get a flight - Any ideas?
