    Does anyone have any idea why the e-visa site is no longer available? I have been trying for 2 days but all I get is a blank page. Doesn't exactly fill me full of confidence in the system. Before anyone suggests it's easier to get on the border.
    a) my passport is rapidly filling up and I don't want to lose another page.
    b) I want to avoid being ripped off at Koh Kong,I really resent paying those rip off merchants.

    Try
    http://www.mfaic.gov.kh/e-visa/index.aspx

    Think they either changed the web address.

    Just tried it again and the link works for me. Try your browsers security settings.

    Try the following:

    It has been through a few incarnations in recent times, but is apparently working.

    The link works on my work PC, but not at home, but that could be the time difference, and server down time. I'll try again later.

    I have tried both links (above) on IE and Google Chrome and have set the site as trusted in content.Still I get nothing.
    Chrome tells me 'link broken' I have tried at different times of day for 3 days now (from UK) but still nothing.
    Luckily they haven't got my payment otherwise I would be sweating!

    I got onto the site this morning, and submitted my application no problem(UK).

    Had the same problem as you at home last night, getting a google error, but processed it at work this morning and everything was fine.

    No idea why, but try using another machine, or worst case just get one at the border.

    Stranger and stranger! I have taken your advice and tried another machine, still no joy. I'll keep on trying as I have a couple of weeks yet.
    I'd be interested to learn whether yours was processed smoothly.
    If I can't get it I will have to take it up with Hun Sen next time we go out for a beer!!!

    got my e visa from www.mfaic.gov.ke/e-visa yesterday no problem.
    the visa was the size of a credit card, is this ok?
    it is not very clear, and when it is enlarged, it goes out of focus!
    don't forget to print 2 copies, one for entry and one for exit

    We applied for an e-visa 7days ago and and have heard nothing. We have sent emails to the dept of Foreign affairs from the evisa website and received nothing back. We called the number which is very very expensive from Thailand and could not get through except for one time when they asked us to hold and then came back after 3 minutes and hung up the phone.

    The money was taken from the credit card the same day (23rd January) as the e-visa was applied for.

    We have proceeded to pay for another visa today.

    Do not do e-visa unless you want to spend about 2,500 baht to get your Cambodian tourist visa (twice).

    we still check on the website and it says the application is still pending and so is the payment, even though they got our money 7 days ago when it came off the credit card, which we checked.

    What a scam.

    After trying for nearly a week I managed to get the site and applied and was issued with e-visa.This site seems to appear and disappear at will. I have never come across anything like it!

    I used the link provided by somtam2000 in #5, applied for my visa last night 9.30pm bangkok time (worked perfectly well), received my visa by mail this morning at 8am - less then 12 hours processing time. Wow, incredible.

    Do not apply e-Visa now. Read this from WikiTravel: e-Visa scam?
    The original provider of the e-Visa service was kicked out in murky circumstances, and their site [2] now rails against the evils of the new provider. However, travellers who have obtained e-Visas with the new system report no problems using them.
