Hiya,

I am looking to move to Cambodia for a few months. My plan is to get a one way ticket and see whether I can find some bar/ teaching work.

After this I am looking to travel to India, but I am not booking flights until I am in Cambodia and I know when I want to leave. Does anyone know how this will affect me Visa wise, or even If I can do a plan such a this.

Also a little worried about how this will affect my budget!

Help!

Thanks all,.

Hiya back,
All you have to do is book a separate fight out of Cambodia near the end of your visa.
Just make sure the ticket you purchase is fully refundable and without penalty or fees.
Or a cheap AirAsia flight to say Bangkok.
Cambodia gives you a one month tourist visa ($20) or a business visa ($25)..
(I heard that a business visa is easy to get.)
I just recently saw a sign for help wanted (English speaking) at a hotel/restaurant in
Sihanoukville.
Also a run to over the border is alway's an option if you only get the 30 day visa.

Thank you so much! I have just completed my TEFL qualification, so I am looking to stay in Phnom Penh whilst I look for work! If it all doesn't work out I will fly on to India when the seasons are right.

Could I book a bus out of Cambodia as my leaving ticket do you think? Or does it have to be a flight?

Danny,
I don't think Cambodia cares about your departure. I have entered Cam. a dozen times at least and they don't ask or care about your onward plans. You don't need proof of onward travel. I would apply for a businessman's visa. This will allow you to stay longer than 30 days.

I think you will have a decent chance of finding work while in PP. I would get over to the Foreign Correspondence Club (FCC) on Sisowath Quay. Plenty of good info from the ex pats in the FFC. You might want to stay here or at least eat there and chat with the guys that run it. Good guys to help with your search for a job and all things things Cambodian. Good luck.
