    Hey, my turn to ask the questions for a change.

    We're planning to take the boat from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc next June, and I was wondering about the crossing at Kaam Samnor / Ving Xuong. I know that most nationalities need to have a visa beforehand, as they don't give them on arrival. Luckily however, I carry a passport from a country listed on the "No visa required for travel less than 15 days" list. Now, I was just wondering do I need to have some sort of proof with me that I'm leaving within 15 days or something else to show at the border to get my 15-day visa exemption stamp? (I assume it's just a stamp)

    We did the boat trip from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc a few month ago and are also holders of passports with "No visa required for travel less than 15 days". When we came to the Vietnam border the staff at the boat collected all passports and we just had to sit and wait when they sorted things out. We were never asked for proof that we were leaving the country.
