    I will travelling around with a bunch of friends to Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Cambonia, Burma and Malaysia for 2 weeks. I will plan on applying for my Vietnam visa in Holland at the embassy here. I understand to enter Burma and Combonia, I need a visa ( I am a Dutch passport holder). Can I apply a visa for Burma (one day visit only - enter from Thailand borner) at the borner post? or I have to prepare everything here in Holland? I called the Vietnam embassy in Den Haag. He said that I only need to apply my Cambonian visa while I am in Vietnam. Is it Ok or I (again) have to apply from Holland? Can you tell me, safety and better way that I should do? Because I plan to enter by land from Vietnam to Cambonia and from Chiang Mai to Myanmar.

    Please advice! :)

    Thank you

    Hi Ladybalabala,

    Sorry I can't help about Burmese visasa as we don't cover there and I've never had to get a visa for there. If you're talking about just popping over the border from Mai Sai and re-entering Thailand on the same day, then I don't think you need a visa for that.

    Cambodian visas are easily available in Vietnam.

    I was at Mae Sai(Nth Thailand) back in 2003 and was told at the border xing that you could cross into Burma for 50 baht and have to pay 250 baht to get back into Thailand(day visa, no stamp in passport just a ticket).
    Best to wait till you get to Vietnam for visa to Cambodia-cheaper and receive in quick time. Can normally do through your accommodation/travel agency but beware small percentage can be dodgy.Visit embassys for safest way of getting any visa.

    Wow lots of places to go in only 2-weeks. I suggest you take more days off and extend the holiday, or you will spend the entire time traveling.

    But to help answer the questions;
    You can get all the Visa in bkk if you like, but to save your time as it is limited. then definately get the Vietnam visa before you go (though this is more expensive usually than getting it done in bkk) If you plan to fly to Cambodia then you can get the visa on arrival at the airport, but if you cross the border than you need to get it before you arrive. Though you must be specific with all visas as to which border crossing you intend to take. As a general visa will not always guarantee crossing all border crossings. If you only want to go for one day into burma then you just use your passport and a few hundred baht and away you go. this goes for all the border crossings to burma that allow you entry. Depending which one though the price may change. Sometimes free to go over cross from Thailand but then to actually get into Burma another 5$

    Anyway have fun, but take some good advice Two weeks is not enough for Vietnam, let alone all the Country's you intend to travel.
