extend visa

Posted by sharpie84 on 9/3/2011 at 16:28

hi,

we are currently on a one month tourist visa and would like to extend our visas for one more month. They are offering $45 at our guesthouse in phnom phen which seems a bit excessive as it is $20 at the border. We are considering getting are visas at the immigration office but i am getting conflicting costs online. How much is it to extend the visa at the immigration office and what is the process.

Thanks

That price seems similar to the prices paid in Siem Reap, but you are also paying for the transport from there. It's too much for a guesthouse. Go to the immigration dpt. and ask :)

That's about right.The extension is quite expensive.You could do a border run but that'll be 8-9 hours from PP to Poipet and back again.and cost $14 return.If you're just going to stay a few days extra pay the overstay fine of $7 a day.

Should have added the commision they take is around 1-2 dollars and it'll cost you that to get to Immigration and back in a tuk-tuk.They are not ripping you off.

...........It's usually both easier and quicker to get your guesthouse or a travel agent to extend for you. Somehow, they manage a faster turnaround than if you went to the Immigration Office directly.

If you shop around a few travel agencies, you might find a slightly better price.

That's a pretty standard price...

Sayadian, if you overstay your visa the insurance is not valid, not recommended at all !

Don't ask Nisse where he gets his info. He knows things. You couldn't handle the answer anyway.

When on overstay, you are illegally in the country, no insurance company will accept your claim. I learned that the hard way,,,,
