Chinese Visa from Thailand or Vietnam?

Posted by HnS on 14/3/2010 at 00:18

Hi All Our first time on the forum. Could anyone advise us if we can get a tourist visa for China from either Hanoi or Bangkok. We are British citizens and have looked online and it seems you must apply within your resident country but surely we're not the 1st couple to travel and decide to go to China?? Anyone managed to get it sorted out of their home country? Any help is welcomed Thank you Heather and Scott ...

Cambodian e-Visa/ On Arrival Visa

Posted by natwest on 9/3/2008 at 14:42

Hi, Has anyone used both visa options before? e-Visa is $25 while the On Arrival is only $20, so what is the major difference between the two, except being more convenient? I don't quite see why I have to pay $5 more for "processing" Is the queue for the visa always long and the staff worked snail slow? Thanks. ...

Thai Tourist Visa - Double Entry

Posted by andrewmr on 6/2/2010 at 06:23

Hello Travelfish! I will be traveling through SE Asia shortly - flying into Bangkok then going overland to Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and back into Thailand by land. On my first trip to Thailand I plan to be there less than 30 days, so I could simply use the 30-day visa-exemption to get in, however, I don't have an outbound flight. I've heard that the main problem with the 'proof of onward travel' is that the airlines may deny boarding, not that Thai immigration will deny entry. On my second tr ...

Hi Everyone, We are in Siem Reap right now and a guy at out hotel is telling us (after a few phone calls) that as of just recently, people are no longer required to have a Laos Visa in advance when arriving at the Laos/Cambodia border from the Cambodia side. Every book/ website page I have read states the exact opposite, and the only place to get a Laos Visa in in Phnom Pehn. I am just wondering if anyone else has run into this?! We are definitely going to go around to other travel agent ...

Will my 30day free visa be enough for this? I will not stay in Thailand for my than 30 days tota ...
