I booked two separate tickets. One from Amsterdam to Bangkok BKK (Finnair), one from Bangkok to Luang Prabang in Laos (Lao Airlines). Will I need to go through Thai immigrations to collect my luggage? As a Dutch citizen it says here http://www.consular.go.th/main/contents/filemanager/VISA/Visa%20on%20Arrival/VOA.pdf that I do not need a visa. Does this mean 'faster through immigration'? I have 2,5 hours for transit .
