Hi. I am off to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat with the wife and a friend pretty soon.

I am using the E Visa whilst Kanchana and Mark are not, so I intend to let you know how they compare when I get back.

So far:
I applied for the visa by going to http://evisa.mfaic.gov.kh/
Filled in the forms and sent it away on a Sunday afternoon. The next morning (Monday) my visa was approved and emailed to me. Excellent.

You need to have a Pay Pal account and a electronic photo to put on the form. It cost US$25.

Oh, you need to have access to a printer as well.

So far it seems good and hassle free and will save me a page in my almost full passport.

Oh, and as part of the deal at the moment I was able to download for free the travelfish Siem Reap and Angkor Wat guide book which at 16 pages is likely to be much more convenient, more accurate and more useful than a Lonely Planet - and it is free. YAY!

OK. I paid US$25 for my E-visa compared to my friends who paid US$20 for a standard visa. They had to stand in lines with everyone else and fill in forms, whereas I got through immigration without much fuss. I saved 15 minutes compared to them.

Does that make it worth US$5? Probably not.

It was worth it for me as I got to save a page in my passport which is running out of pages (normally the Cambodian visa takes up a page - whereas the e-visa is a separate piece of paper you print off yourself) and also currently there is a promotion and you get a Travel Fish Siem Reap / Angkor Guide book for free - which I found very useful and comprehensive and well written.

So if you are flying it is marginal and probably not quite worth it, but saves you a bit of time - but if you are going overland into Cambodia I think this saves you a bit of money and helps cut out some corruption.

So do consider it I reckon

What have people been paying for Cambodian visas at the land borders recently?

I think I paid $26 to get my guesthouse to sort it out in Saigon which was $1 more than they were charging at the border. It was worth it to waltz passed everyone frantically trying to sort their visa out whilst I ate some dog with rice at the border restaurant. Well I have no idea what the meat was.

Hi,

My Hong Kong friend jsut went Cambodia last month. She did apply for cambodia evisa. According to her, it is simple and fast. I feel great that there is this kind of service which save time. Wish there will be more evisa application on other countries.

I was going to apply for my e-visa but then read somewhere on-line that you
may encounter problems at certain checkpoints around Cambodia going into
other areas. Does anyone know about this problem?
Tks for the advice before I get mine

Hello! It takes about 10 minutes to get your visa at the airport in Phnom Penh. They have a lot of officers working behind the desk. I'm not sure if you have told your friends to go to get the E-visa yet, but I called the Cambodian Embassy in my country before going to SEA and they said not to stress, just get it at the aiport when you arrive.

I was in Cambodia in April 2013, for Angkor Wat, try to get the 3 day pass, it makes more sense than getting the one day pass every day... My only advice, check the weather before hand once you arrive smile.gif

Have a safe journey!
