Thailand - Laos - Cambodia - Thailand

Posted by BazzRose on 2/7/2009 at 02:42

Apologies if these seem like stupid questions and there are obvious answers somewhere, but I've not been able to find them! I'm travelling in to Thailand on 3rd September, and will be spending 90 days in South East Asia. Looking to see as much of Thailand/Laos/Cambodia as possible (and time permitting Vietnam) Would I be better off applying for a tourist visa for each of these countries before I go? Also - as I'll be coming into Thailand, and then spending about 3/4 weeks there before hea ...

Hello All! I have a few visa related questions: 1) Is it possible to get a Cambodia visa on arrival at the Kaam Samnor/Ving Xuong border crossing? 2) Is the standard Laos tourist visa for 15 days or 30 days?

Do they need to be a certain size, etc? I was planning to print a few 4" x 6" head sh ...

Are rush Visa Services reliable?

Posted by splacknuck on 9/6/2009 at 02:02

I am a US citizen still in the US, and I need to get a 60-day tourist visa. I need to get it sent out, processed, and back within 10 days, because I travel a lot and need my passport most of the time. Regular consulate processing takes at least two weeks unless I deliver it by hand, but lots of rush services offer 5 day and even 24 hr processing. Yet they are not in the same city as any consulate. How do these middle-men work, and are they reliable? Thanks awfully! ...
