Travel E visa to Cambodia

I am arriving in Siem Reap from Korea. Has anyone used the

5$ e visa to obtain a travel visa over the internet before arrival?

e visa is $25

I find it just as easy to get it on arrival - $20 and a passport photo. I don't think the evisa saves you much time because you still have to wait for your bags to come off, and it's kinda fun to watch the VoA process.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I wanted to be sure that getting a Visa for Cambodia at the border was

up to date information. I do not want a problem at the airport after

extensive planning for a month vacation in Cambodia and Thailand.

I used the e-visa option to eliminate uncertainties at departure from India and arrival in SR.

Submitted online application on Sat night and got the e-visa on Monday morning.

There is one govt web site and a few fake ones according to the govt official who responded to a question I had. :)

Hi,

I frequently use e-visa and have always found it to be 100% reliable. Visa on Arrival is also a simple and straight forward process and saves you $5. However if your passport is running short of space the $5 can be worth it to not lose a page in your passport for the visa.

Do check you are eligible for VOA or e-visa however

Cheers

Travelers from the US are eligible for VOA (not all nationalities are) - it's a very simple process, both at the airport and land border crossings. The e-visa is not accepted at all land border crossings, but it sounds like you are arriving via a flight so VOA will be a breeze.

Lynn011 is absolutely correct. It took just minutes to get a VOA in Siem Reap....$20/pp for US passports and just in case you are interested...also minutes at Vientiane,Laos....but $35/pp US citizens.

Enjoy your travels.

Hi,

Is there a trick (apart from being a very quick typist) to filling in the payment information for the e-visa before it times out after 15 secs? I've tried several times so far and failed miserably.

Cheers, Neil

I just traveled to Siem Reap in March and it was simple to get the visa at the

airport. No need to get one early especially if you are arriving at an airport. You do need 20$ per person in US dollars.

Safe travels, Robin

Hello,

I forgot to mention that you also need one passport photo.

It is better to have a plain/ not smiling face since some countries

prefer them. The latest facial recognition software has some difficulty with

smiling faces apparently.

Good luck, Robin
