Technically, yes, you can get an Ordinary (which is what the Business visa is called) visa at land borders. However, they are notorious for extorting additional 'fees' for any excuse they can make up. The airport is more 'official', and in plain view, and not much opportunity for shenanigans exists.

What I would like to know, definitively, is whether you can get an Ordinary (Business) visa in advance at the the Cambodian Embassy in Phnom Penh, without getting overcharged. Anyone?

I sometimes wonder what people envision as the "hasssle" of getting a visa on arrival in Cambodia. As long as you go to the official immigration hut... there is no hassle. Pay them the exact money in

Inserted below is a link to the Cambodian E Visa Site. Online applications for Cambodian Visa can be done from this page. This is for a Single Entry Tourist Visa. This site also contain

AFAIK it can't be done, you need to leave the country and return on an ordinary visa then get the one year extension for retirement.   Cost for one year extension is around $280-$290. No spe

Is it possible to get business visa on arrival if you enter NOT by airplane pls?

Yes,you can request a business( now called an ordinary) visa if arriving at a land border,the cost should be 25USD,but invariably you will be asked for more-ranging from about 30USD at most borders to 1500THB at the notorious Koh Kong border-up to you if you pay or hold out for a reduced quote!

Thanks Richard,exactly as u said!

When the biz visa is extended for 3 months does that make a total of 4 months (initial month plus three more)?

Or is it the initial month plus two more?

Reason I want to know is that I'll renting monthly and if I can stay slightly longer than three months I'll do the daily rate for a few days to start to give me more time to find a monthly.

Much appreciated if i can get a quick answer as I'm in PP now.

And a second question, can I get a new USA passport at the American Embassy in Phnom Penh as it expires January 14th 2012 and I am under the impression I must re-enter Thailand with 6 months left on my passport. I currently have a Thai retirement visa with a re-enrty permit.

yes, i got my last passport in PP, took 10 days and no problem with visas for Thailand as i have a 1 year thia visa and then just transfer it, BUT it can ONLY be transferred at the office it was issued. you cna thna just show ur old passport wiht the current visa and they will stamo u in on the new passport tillu get the extension transfered over.

Apartments do not usualy come with internet access , but there are so many internet cafes around that should be no problem for you . I have a 2 room apartment with good sized balcony , everything included , furniture , cable TV , cooking facilities , large fridge etc , have to supply your own cooking utensils , pots , pans etc , good sized toilet in room(that works) . Rent is $120.00 a month plus electric , water , cable and cooking gas , comes out at about $45.00 a month , i have my own old computer in the room , have a reliable ISP , rent a phone , $8.00 a month and never get bothered by any-one .
With the no-hastle visa and friendly people , Cambodia living is a breeze compared to Thailand , never been approached by police , never confronted by local drunks , ex-pats are friendly , you can start your own buisiness , become a resident in 5 years , own property , sit back and relax .

Dumball thanks for the above scoop, what cities and websites do you recommend?

I ordered evisa for Cambodia yesterday. Was happy how comfortable it was.

After payment came the bill, 60! US Dollars. 28 for the government, 32 the service.

I was angry and protested. They cancelled it.

Today I have read all exactly. It was written all, but, in spite of this, before it s to pay, the price must be to see.

To get the visa at the border, three years ago, was very easy.

$60 for one month visa? Obscene price, indeed. Hope you got a refund.

I was just with a guy crossing at Bavet, KH-Moc Bai VN. He paid $20 for Cambo visa on arrival.

When crossing at land border's, make sure you are aware of the correct price for the visa you wish to obtain, have the correct change in $US, and if they try to make you pay in Baht then tell them you only have $US and that you know the price...be smart don't allow them to rip you off.

Not if you stand there with a $20 bill, a sickly smile and an air of determination to stand there until they put the green sticker in your passport.

Just talked to an individual and saw the passport, he just paid 1100 baht for a Cambodia Visa at Chong Chom.
