Many thanks for the update.

So with Hat Lek at least, if they cambo's take your customs forms, then I presume that you are basically forced to exit there too?

Correct, yes. That's the whole idea behind it. There is however nothing stopping you from travelling all around the country despite what they tell you (which is don't leave Koh Kong province).

Having said that, plenty of drivers have exited at other crossings. Phuketrichard has entered there, declared his papers "lost" and exited at other crossings.

I asked Thai customs about this. They said after a certain amount of time, Cambo customs at Koh Kong (Cham Yeam) disposes of the Thai customs papers (not sure after how long, but certainly not before 30 days have elapsed, probably much longer though).

Also, presumably the red plate you receive from Koh Kong customs, if you cross at another crossing they won't see again unless you hand it back to the customs office where you exit. However, that's probably not a good idea as they'll be like: "what's this?!"

Sorry, and are we allowed to travel from Cambodia to Laos with a Thai car ?

There is almost no information about this online. According to one member here on Thaivisa who has crossed from Cambodia to Laos in his Thai car, it should be possible, unlike when heading in the other direction where until recently even Lao registered vehicles were either prevented from crossing or only allowed to go as far as Stung Treng, or they needed a Lao driver etc.

Since rules are often decided according to the whims of a particular official, the only way of knowing for sure is to show up at the border crossing.

It's best to enter at Chong Chom/O'Smach and then travel out of Cambodia to Laos through the only land border crossing, which is Dom Kralor/Ban Nakkieng. For the Lao side, a car passport will be required.

Heading from Laos INTO Cambodia directly by Thai car is not a good idea and likely to be refused on the Cambodian side.

Great info here - but  was wondering if there were any updates on Osamech. Does it still work the same way as in this thread?
