    Do we need to produce proof of departure when applying for entry visas to Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia?

    I've never been asked for proof of departure. My understanding is that if you overstay, when you go to leave, you pay up big time.

    That said, some airlines do want proof of onwards journey before they'll carry you. One of these carriers operates into Vietnam: Jetstar. there may be others. But, I've tended to fly with AirAsia, and they've never enforced that notion.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply: think i read it applies with Quantas or Jetstar flights. OK cos we'll be using Air Asia, good to know this wont be a problem.

    Also do yo know if we can apply for a Vietnam visa in Kuala Lumpah? Our itinery is Maylasia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia back to KL> We werent planning on doin Bankok this trip so are looking for options to get Vietnam visa.

    Great site, so much info for us newbies!!!
    Cheers

    Personally, I find the hassle of getting a Vietnamese visa annoying. Not only do they charge different amounts re: country of traveller origin, but they are slow as a wet week. For this reason, I get my visa at my home country.

    Reading Travelfish, the quickest and (somewhat) easiest places are Sihanhoukville (1) and Phnom Penh (2). While you can get a visa in Kuala Lumpur, I don't know the price or time delay.

    Try emailing them and seeking your answer. Look at this link and scroll down to 23 for embassy & email details.

    Cheers
