Advice please - Visa Thailand into Laos and back

We will be obtaining a 30 day visa when flying into Phuket from Australia. Six days prior to the expiry of our Thai visa we would like to go over to Laos via the Friendship Bridge at Nong Khai and spend 4 days/ nights. Will we have any problems re-entering Thailand at Nong Khai and obtaining another 15 days visa ?

When arriving in Thailand by air you will get an visa-free entry of 30 days.

When arriving in Thailand over land you will get an visa-free entry of 15 days.

No problem at all.

Have a nice holiday in Phuket & Vientiane.

Have your onward flight details handy just in case they ask for them.
