Confused.. Confused.. Confused!

Posted by miamaziing on 1/7/2010 at 10:35

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. I'm reading mixed reports that once it is issued the 30 days begins.. but does 'issued' mean when it passes through the embassy or when you are actually stamped in on arrival? I leave in 2 months so should I wait to get it processed? Also from Vietnam I will be traveling (over land) to Cambodia, and Visa's are available on ar ...

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. Cheers! ...
