Picking up a Laos visa in Cambodia

Posted by AnotherPatrick on 22/4/2006 at 15:24

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know what the current deal is with getting a Loas Visa in Cambodia. My current plan is to use the Southern Loas border crossing which I understand doesn't do tourist visas. Am I able to get one in Siem Reap (last major city I'll be before Laos) or do I need to get one in Phnom Penh.
Everything I've read so far gives conflicting information.
Thanks,
Patrick

You'll need to get it in Phnom Penh -- no Lao consulate in Siem Reap to our knowledge. If you're planning on being in Thailand before Cambodia, you could always get it in Bangkok...

Posted from within Vietnam.

Thanks Somtam,

I will be in Phnom Penh, but not sure for how long - how long does it take?
What about Ho Chi Minh City?

Thanks,
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Here's the details:

The embassy has a 1 day turnaround on visas.

Cost depends on your nationality -- here are some samples:
Australia US$30
USA $40
Canada $47

Those prices are from the embassy -- travel agents would tack on a service charge.
