Vietnam Visa

Posted by karyn on 8/7/2006 at 22:14

Hi again! I read through a couple of strings about visa for Vietnam; however, I just want to make sure of a couple of things.

Thai Visa-Free 30 Days

Posted by LaraP on 1/8/2010 at 03:10

Hey, So, just a quick question. It seems like the whole buy a cheap AirAsia plane ticket is the best way to enter without any problems (or rather to board the plane to Bangkok in the first place). Does it matter if you get a cheap flight sooner than the actual date you intend to leave? Do they just give you 30 days no matter what or would they only give me the amount of time until the flight? Thanks! ...

Hi I was really hoping someone could help me out! I am drowning in Visa applications.. Basically I am flying into Vietnam first so I am organizing my Visa from Australia.

Free Thai Tourist Visas

Posted by nicolasmith83 on 6/4/2010 at 15:47

Does anyone know if it's still possible to get a free TOURIST visa for Thailand (i.e. one that gives you 60days, not the visas on arrival that only give 15/30 days for overland/flight entry)? And if so, at the Embassy in Ho Chi Minh City? I read they were available until April 2010. If not, how much will it cost a UK passport holder to buy a Thai Tourist Visa in Saigon? ...

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.
