Hi Everyone, I plan on coming to teach in PP, Cambodia in April. I plan on flying into Cambodia from Thailand. I figure I could get the eVisa in advance or do the Visa on Arrival. Anyhow, once my one month is up, what are my options? Extend the visa 30 more days? Or go to an agent and get a multiple entry visa for around $280? Or keep getting a new visa every month? Thanks! ...
