Thai Lao Border Crossings Added

The usual not quite informative announcement about additional ways to cross between Thailand and Lao:
MCOT : TNA English News :: "LAOS, Aug 26 (TNA) - Thailand and ... (Lao PDR) have agreed ... to upgrade a temporary border crossing point in Thailand's northern Uttaradit Province to permanent status, as well as to open two temporary border points in the country's northeastern region a bid to boost blateral tourism.
...
Under the agreement, both sides will upgrade the temporary border crossing in Uttaradit's Baan Kok District to permanent status.

Two more border crossing points in the northeastern provinces of Nakhon Phanom and Amnat Charoen will also be opened."

What's needed are details about:
  • the exact places one might cross
  • whether Lao visa on arrival will be available for non-Thai.
