Khmer Passport and Visa Question

Postby DD » Wed Mar 24, 2010 11:18 am

I have searched the internet trying to find out this info, different sites say different things about entry.

How much does a Cambodian Passport cost?

And

Do khmer nationals need a visa prior to arriving at Bangkok to get into Thailand for 3 days only?
Or can they get a visa on arrival at the airport like other countries.
If they need a visa first, do you know how much it costs and how long does it take to get one in Phnom Penh?

And
Same for Singapore do khmers need a visa first? If so how much?


Thankyou
DD

I forget how much a passport costs but the price is different depending on how long you want them to take. Around $150 i think. It cost $18 for a 2 year extension. Thai Visa's must be gotten in advance, they currently cost $35 but will be free again after April 1st. Khmer's get free visa on arrival in Singapore.

How long does it take to get a Thai Visa approved once submitted?
I presume it is only done at the Thai Embassy in Phnom Penh?

Does the khmer national have to personally go in and apply for the visa or could i take the passport down and apply for it on their behalf etc?
(Meant to be a Birthday Present dont want them to know at the moment)

Thanks

There is a travel shop next to kfc on Monivong. They charge $1 extra and can do all the leg work. Visa takes 2 days. You can take the passport and 1 photo there yourself. You may need a copy of the ID card as well. The passport holder does not need to go.

or if she/he does not have id card, a copy of the family book will do (also if u want apply for Passport)

passport is $150 in 30 days
$220 in 7 days
$280 in 3 days
Many places will do for u including the head guy at Immigration if u know someone there.

Note they will ask when she/he boards for return ticket when they fly to bangkok and Singapore
