Siem Reap airport - immigration and departure times

Can somebody please comment on

how long it would take for clearing immigration, customs (we need the visa at airport). We are reaching at 9:10 PM on korean air. We have the passport photos and will bring exact USD currency. Is USD currency accepted or do we need to change currency?

how long would it take for departure? I understand there is departure tax t be paid. can it be accepted in USD or local cur? I presume it is clearly marked in English. Do we pay the tax first and then check in bags?

Our flight is at 7:45 PM with Bangkok air. How early should we get to airport for checking bags, paying tax etc.

Thanks

You will need US for your visa - there is no longer a departure tax (hasn't been since April 2011). It's usually recommended that you check in for your departing flight 2 hours before flight time. You will check your bags, go through security, then through immigration on the way out.

International flights require a two hour prior to departure check-in time. This is a universal requirement. Remember that aircraft manifests close circa 30 minutes prior to departure time.

You may only use US$ to pay for your visa at the airport.

Tourist visa is $20. and Business visa is $25.

Exact money helps unless you want lots of old and soiled notes back as change.

Best regards. Ian
