    hi there,

    We will be heading towards Vietnam in February 2007. Will be stopping over in Phnom Pehn before taking the boat to Chau Doc.

    Is it fairly easy/reliable to get a Vietnamese visa from Phnom Penh? I've read that it costs $35'ish for 1 day wait and that I can get it from either a travel agent or through the Vietname embassy.

    To get it from Canada (where we're from) before travel, it would cost us almost $100 with courier fees and such included, gasp!

    Much thanks for any advice!

    Hi lampostx,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    Vietnam visa in Phnom Penh is easy as pie. US$25-35 depending on how fast a service you want -- best to go to the embassy yourself, but any travel agent will be able to help you if you wish.

    Thank you so much! Would you by any chance, know of reputable travel agents that handle the visa arrangements well? If not, no worries, we'll shop around or go to the embassy.

    If you can nip down to the Vietnamese consulate in Sihanoukville, they'll knock you out a visa in under 20 minutes for $33. There's absolutely no need to use agents.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Every hotel/guesthouse in Phnom Penh will gladly arrange a visa for you but, if you have the time, go to the embassy, as everyone else will add on their bit of commission. Having said that sometimes by the time you've paid your moto/tuktuk fare to drop it off and pick it up you might as well have just used the hotel service!
