Cambodian visaapproval and PDF of
Post: #1
I’m off to Cambodia & Laos (with Hanoi add-on) in November and would like to let other travellers to Cambodia know how how impressed I was with the official eVisa application system. Completing the online form was very straightforward and I submitted my application on Friday evening: the approval e-mail (with visa as a PDF attachment) was in my inbox when I got up this morning (Monday)! Great service at USD 36.00 and a lot cheaper (and faster?) than the £68 JY charge!

I second that. It’s always worth checking whether online visas are available. Most are very straightforward, and as Sharon says, considerably cheaper than paying tour operators.

Hi SharonT

I did this trip last November and also got my Laos visa ahead of travelling.  It doesn't take long at the airport on arrival but it is one less thing to think about.  This is a fabulous trip and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Regards

That's good as long as you arrive in Cambodia by air. We went from Vietnam by river and the e-visa was not accepted. Caused panic for one of the group. JY should have told us we needed a proper visa.

Hi Laronde and Sharon,

I have checked with our Visa team and for this Cambodia trip you will require a full visa in your passport. You CANNOT have an E-visa. This is due to them entering Cambodia via the Mekong. They do not have the e-visa facility.

For customers who have their visa arranged through ourselves, we send documentation stating what type of visa is required.

If customers have opted to obtain their own visa we don’t send this information as of course the customer doesn't require it.

All visa fees are added to the booking by default, so if you prefer to get your own visa you will need to either go online & remove the visa fee or call us to have it removed.

If you call us to do this, we will give advice on obtaining your own visa.

I really hope this is helpful, but please do give us a call if you are unsure of anything.

Many thanks,
Vickie

Hi Vickie

I’m doing ‘Untold Cambodia and Laos’ with Vietnam add-on departing 5 November and according to the itinerary we fly from London to Phnom Penh via Hanoi (where I assume it will be an international transfer). Therefore a tourist e-visa *is* acceptable - please confirm. It may well be different for other holidays with different itineraries such as the one Laronde did ... ?

Thanks.

Hi Sharon,

Yes, that's fine for your e-visa. It's only when entering via the Mekong that you will need a full visa.

Thanks,
Vickie
