in the guidebook which is a few years old it says visa on arrival is not availiable at this crossing. is this still the case?
if not i dont have visa pre arranged as was only in ho chi minh at the weekend so consulate closed.
i am travelling from phu quoc to sikhanoukville so seems easier to use this crossing. is it easy to travel this way?
going back to rach gia & onto the border in less than a week. Any help gratefully received x

I did a quick search for you and it seems you CAN get a visa at this crossing. I looked here and found this:

Xa Xia, Vietnam/Prek Chak, Cambodia (Ha Tien crossing)
Cambodian visas available on arrival at the border. Vietnamese visas NOT available at the border. (You must get your Vietnam visa in advance.) There are conflicting reports about whether Cambodian E-visas are accepted.

Open 07:00-18:00

This page confirms they are available, apparently for $25 US.

Happy travels!

DIRTY GAMES on CruiseCritic.com – FRAUD REVIEWS by paid fans
of SPB tours.
Get real! There are more red flags in this part of CC than on a
Russian street during their Bolshevik Revolution! As travelers and
readers of CC’s forums we are asking for independent tours and
want to deal with independent advisers. What we seem to be
getting are the same people recommending the same companies.
Why is the difference between the Google ranking of a St.
Petersburg private shore tour companies and the companies
recommended on Cruise Critic so huge?? Let’s try to find out and
take a look at the posts of “cruiser Len” (search for Giantfan13)
Nobody knows what happened to “agent” Len after his Russian
tour, we can only guess. But this “independent” fellow has been
posting day and night only about SPB-Tours and his favorite
goddess, Vika (owner). Don’t you think his reviews sound phony?
What about others? There is a whole team of such” independent”
cruisers there!
SPB tours fools people and her former visitors were writing
about it! Her former visitors were trying rapidly to warn others
through CC, regarding buses without air-conditioning, guides,
who could hardly speak English, cancellation of the tours etc. But
somehow all those posts just disappeared from the

A little update:

You can get a Visa into Vietnam here, but it's only good for the Ha Tien area. You're not meant to go any further than the town, but for those of you naughty types, you can easily crack on over to Phu Quoc :-)
