Hi there,

I'm going on a 4 months trip to SE Asia and was looking at getting my Cambodian visa through e-Visa to avoid scamps. However I saw loads of reviews saying the service was not trustworthy.
Has anyone had any experience of the site and would you recommend it?

Thanks
:)

I've never used E-Visa but I've gotten a Visa at the Phnom Penh airport several times and found the process to be hassle-free. I would just wait to get it at the airport. Also, depending on how long you are staying in each country, it's possible to get visa's for other countries from Cambodia. For example, if you are starting in Thailand, you can get a visa at the airport there, get a Cambodian visa at the airport, arrange a Vietnam visa in Cambodia, and get a Laos visa at the airport.

Cheers jmalsch! I think I'll probably do that and get it in Bangkok :)

Midinette,
I would just buy the Cambodian visa when you arrive at the airport. If you buy it in BKK, you will have to visit the Cambodian Embassy twice and you won't save any money. If you are going to Cambodia via road, then it might make sense to buy it when you are in BKK. Buy your VN visa in Phnom Penh, you can obtain your Lao visa on arrival.

How much should I budget for visas for BKK, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia?

"Thailand and Malaysia are free whilst Vietnam is 55$ and Cambodia is 20$US :)"

Thailand is free for many western countries, if you stay 30 days or less. Some countries do have to pay for a Thai visa.

The VN visa is actually $25. But, the price varies from country to country. I have bought VN visas in Phnom Penh for $28, figure $30 now. This is using a travel agent or business. It is not worth your time/trouble to save $5 by doing it yourself IMO. I was charged $45 for a VN visa in the US, $55 in Singapore.

Another option if you are flying into VN is the 'visa on arrival' system. $25 stamp fee, $17 for the approval letter. I wrote about this in my blog, under 'Off to SaiGon'. Good luck.

For British citizens, you get a free 90-day social visit pass every time you enter Malaysia.
