    Hi Everyone,
    Does anyone know what the current deal is with getting a Loas Visa in Cambodia. My current plan is to use the Southern Loas border crossing which I understand doesn't do tourist visas. Am I able to get one in Siem Reap (last major city I'll be before Laos) or do I need to get one in Phnom Penh.
    Everything I've read so far gives conflicting information.
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    You'll need to get it in Phnom Penh -- no Lao consulate in Siem Reap to our knowledge. If you're planning on being in Thailand before Cambodia, you could always get it in Bangkok...

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Thanks Somtam,

    I will be in Phnom Penh, but not sure for how long - how long does it take?
    What about Ho Chi Minh City?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Hi Patrick,

    Here's the details:

    The embassy has a 1 day turnaround on visas.

    Cost depends on your nationality -- here are some samples:
    Australia US$30
    USA $40
    Canada $47

    Those prices are from the embassy -- travel agents would tack on a service charge.
