Cambodian Visa Information Please Help...

Recommended Posts

 

    I'll be flying into Siem Reap from Canada with a stopover in China.  I'm a 65 year old Canadian wishing to live in Cambodia long term.  Should I get the electronic 30 day visa online?   Or should I fill out the Visa card they hand out on the plane for visa on arrival?   They are good for only one 30 day renewal., but I need the ordinary/business visa good for a year long renewal if I wish. 

          I read that the electronic/or on plane tourist Visa is $30.00   and the ordinary/business Visa is $35.00.   I've read about the costs of renewal. Something like $300.00 for one year.

 

     Can the electronic online 30 day tourist visa be changed to a ordinary/business Visa when in country?  The 30 day tourist visa/electronic visa can only be extended once.. for a further 30 days.  I need the Visa that can be extended for a year.  

    Not sure what to do...... please help ...and thank you..     I'm just not sure what to do.   Thank you.

Apply for a "ordinary visa on arrival"   cost $35  valid for 30days

ONLINE visa is ONLY tourist visa- can not be changed

 

than go to just about ANY travel agent in town and ask for a ER 1 year extension( 1 years extension cause ur retired- over 50)  around $285.

good for multiple re entries

 

IF u apply for a year year EB visa ( for Working/Business), u might in the future need show a work permit which u cant get UNLESS ur working..

Right now there are no conditions for getting a ER extension.

As above - get ordinary visa on arrival at airport, not evisa.

 

Make sure the agent you use understands you want extension for retirement (ER). These are fairly new. A little under $300 for 12 months with unlimited re-entries.

 

Also make sure you tell them at visa counter at the airport you want ordinary, not tourist, visa. And have a passport photo with you (you will also need one for the 12 month extension).

     Thank you both very much for your information.   I fly out of Canada May 22.   Question:  What are "supporting documents" ? 

     When I look at Cambodian Embassy website, it says this...  :   

    Requirements for obtaining an ordinary(Business) visa into Cambodia 

* A completed visa application form
* A Passport with at least 6months validity.
* One recent photograph (2 inches x 2 inches.)
* Appropriate visa fee (US$40)
* Supporting documents                     (My question... what are "Supporting documents"?   Or do they not ask? )

So the extension due to retirement is ~ 300 USD?  And is good for 12 months.  Is that a multi re-entry?  And can one keep doing extension due to retirement for many years?  What sort of documentation does that extension require?

Yes to all the above and currently requires nothing but your passport and a form filled out.

Presumably there is an age requirement but passport suffices for that. I have not gotten a clrar answer on age though. 60 and up for sure. Not clear re 50-59.

Requirements may tighten in future but for now no need to show proof of funds or income

I was told the age is now 55. Some agents are charging $288 including fee. You need to apply one week before the 30 days expires. It takes about 10 days to get your passport back.

Supporting docs are only required for people under 55. The docs need to show that you have your own income and are not going to work in KoW. They need to be signed by your Embassy. More info is better than not much.

Thanks, good to know. So under 55's can also get retirement visa if they can show the income. Over 55, no income documentation currently needed.

Hmmmm.  Wondering if there is any sort of embassy letter such as Thailand USA embassies used to give for income method?  If not, any idea what type of documentation they would accept?  I would have several sources, dividend, interest statements, past income values, projected income etc, from my bank and broker.  And my bank Etrade said they would issue a letter saying the estimated amounts are true and factual for the next year(s).   I doubt the Cambodians would understand all of that, but I would be willing to provide it

US Embassy in Thailand only used to provide a "statuatory declaration". Basically a witnessed sworn staement from you that you have X income, with no checking of documents by them. Which is why TI stopped accepting them.

 

You'd have to check with US Emb Phnom Penh to see what they do but may well be the same. In which case I suggest you make your statement as specific as podsible i.e. "income of X from Source(s) X" and have back up documentation for it. Even if Embassy doesn't ask for it, Camb Imm might.

I believe it's called an ES VISA (extended stay). ES, ER, EOS all bandied about on assorted websites.

My pal has one but I didn't really notice if it said ES or ER.

The agent's know what you need, hi I'm over 55 and want to stay here for a year, here's my passport and $300.

Yes, multi entry no need to leave at any time in the year unless you want to.

You just buy another 1 year VISA at the end of the first, no need to leave the country.

 

Over 55, the only documentation you need is the $300 for the agent.

Officially I believe you need a letter stating your name, address, nationality and income.

But the agent just types that out and you may be asked to thumbprint it.
