How did people go about getting visas for Laos and Cambodia. I will be in Hong Kong shortly before arriving there. The travel agent suggested doing it in Bangkok...any ideas??

Thanks!

If you are arriving by air at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap you get a visa on arrival. Make sure you have a couple of spare passport photos just to make life a bit easier for you and speed up the process.

Can't help on Laos i'm afraid.

If you are flying into Vientiane or Louang Prabang you can get a VISA on arrival for US$30 cash (you need a passport photo). This will last you 15 days.

If you entering Laos from somewhere else you need to apply.
In Bangkok you can apply for a 30day VISA from the Laotian embassy for between 1000-6000 baht. you need two passport photos and if you apply before noon it will be ready on the same day. You need two photos.

You can also apply for a VISA through a travel agency in Bangkok. Allow 3 days. You can opt for a 15 day VISA or a 30 day VISA.

Hope that helps,

E;)

If your in Hong Kong for a few days you should be able to pick up the visa at the local cambodian consulate (embassy). I'm getting minew in Ho Chi Min City before going in to Cambodia as it only take 24hrs.

Laos Visa's are available on the border with Thailand in Chiang Khon and Cambodian Visa's are available from the Cambodian Embassy in Vientiane.
That's how i did it anyway. There are also travel agents throughout laos who can arrange the Cambodian Visa for you.
