Getting a visa for China in Cambodia...

Posted by sunwreck on 8/6/2010 at 09:17

U.S passport holder. Is it viable to get a Chinese visa from the Chinese consulate in Phnom Penh as opposed to going all the way to HCMC? I've had visas for China in the past even a two year visa when I was working there. I've just never tried obtaining a visa for China in SE Asia before and I can't find anything online about obtaining it from Cambodia so hopefully someone may have some first or second-hand experience they can share. Cheers! ...

I'm not exactly sure if this was posted or not but the Thai tourist visa fee exemption has been extended from May 11 2010 to March 21 2011. I saw this information on the Chicago Thai Consulate's website. It's listed in the headline news section at the top of the page. http://www.thaichicago.net/clate/index.htm ...

China to Vietnam for Russians

Posted by oleganto on 30/4/2010 at 22:26

Good day! I'm gonna go for 3 months travelling to SouthEast Asia. One questions seems unclear. According to the rules citizens of Russia don't need a visa for Vietnam, they get a 15 days free stamp instead. The question is whether I can get this stamp on any border crossing or not? It is so in Laos, but I'm not sure about Vietnam. Tried to scan some Russian forums but unsuccessfully. I'm planning to enter Vietnam from China in June. Any useful info as well as the advices are appreciated. Oleg. ...

UK flight to BKK then another flight to Laos - Need to stamp Thai visa?

Posted by Jleef on 27/4/2010 at 21:22

I was looking at returning to BKK in the next couple of weeks but given the new Foreign Office suggestions, I am now considering hopping on to a flight to Laos or Vietnam as soon as I arrive in BKK, and eventually returning to Thailand when things cool off. My 2nd flight will likely be a separate airline from the one that will take me from London to BKK. Will I therefore have to pass through immigrations before checking in to my second airline? I know with connecting flights this is not neces ...

Vietnam Visa - stopover

Posted by Puggles on 8/4/2010 at 09:24

Hi, I am sure this is a dumb question I think I may already know the answer. I guess I am looking to confirm my suspicions. I am travelling back to SE Asia in November this year. This time, we will be visiting Cambodia and after travelling there for a few days last year, I know the drill on how to apply for my Visa for this. What I need to know is - will I require visa for Vietnam if I fly in to HCMC and stay 24 hours before my onward journey to Siem Reap. I think I would need one ...

Buy tourist visa and not use it until after free entry has expired?

Posted by zigzagry on 18/3/2010 at 05:31

Hey everyone. I'm going to be arriving in Bangkok in 3 weeks and would love if somebody could answer me this question. If I purchase a tourist visa before I go, can I keep it unused until after the 30 day free entry has expired? Or is the tourist visa something stamped in my passport which they would notice and require me to use first? I want to spend 3 weeks in Thailand. Then head to Vietnam and eventually back to Thailand for a longer stay. Maybe 4 weeks. Not having to make boarder runs ...
