    Hi All,

    I am currently in Can Tho at the moment and will be moving to Phu Quoc island pretty soon. After that we are planning on going to Cambodja. We intended to use the border crossing between Ha Tien and Kep (don't know the actual bordercrossing places) with the Visa on arrival. I have howver now heared that that border crossing does not do Visa on arrival?

    Anyone knows anyhting about that or should we plan on going to Chau Doc to get in to Cambodja?

    Any help would be highly appreciated!!


    PS: I have worn my Travelfish T-Shirt in HCMC the last couple of days...unfortunately I didn't met any other travelfishers :-(

    Hmmm, visa on arrival at that border has been available for a couple of years. Are you hearing this from travellers who have been turned back, or reading reports online?

    No worries on the tshirt -- I wear them everyday and yet to meet anyone - it is a select club!

    Ok I have made it trough...We arrived at Ha Tien coming from Phu Quoc and at the docks there is a tourist agency that caters for transport to Kep .

    We shared a taxi to the border, did all the necessary checks and a second taxi was waiting on the Cambodian side to take you to Kep. Taxi with 4 people all the way costed us 8 USD per person.

    You can alos take a mototaxi (6USD) to the border, but transport from the Cambodian side to Kep is very scarce (no cars and didn't really saw any mototaxi either). The road from the border to Kep is unpaved in the beginning but it has a very nice scenery. A pleasant way to enter the country.

    And fyi; in 2010 there are plans of installing a boat from Phu Quoc straight to Kep...

    How much were you charged for your Cambodian visa on arrival at the Ha Tien border crossing? How long did it take them to process you?

    szhmle,

    There is a recent report of crossing at this border with transport costs here. As long as you show up with the right cash in US, shouldn't have problems paying the standard visa on arrival fee.
