Cambodia VOA eVisa

Has anyone had any experience getting VOA through the e-visa site: http://mfaic.gov.kh/evisa/? Wish Burma would have the same convenience!

I've used the Cambodia E-Visa website several times. Super easy to use. You will receive your Visa as a PDF file which you print, cut out, and staple into your passport. I think the E-Visa is $5 more than Visa on Arrival, but you skip the line for Visas and go straight to the E-Visa Immigration Desks on arrival which is nice.

I've had the same positive experience: straightforward to obtain and use and skip the line(s)

Visa on arrival is easy to get and the waiting times were minimal. They're quite fast to process actually. By the time you are done, your luggage would just have come out onto the belt.

I've used both, and decided time wasted messing about with computer, credit card and printer is greater - and potentially more frustrating - than time spent in the VoA queue.

Delivery time of bags is the great leveller. If you are bag-free, the electonic visa might give you a bonus ten minutes in Cambodia.

e-visa saves you a full page of your passport. No more visa sticker as you print out the visa yourself. I always do that.

+++ ! My old passport was as thick as a paperback due to Vietnam and Cambodia. Doesn't bother me, buts some people are thrown off by the full fingerprinting on arrival though. If you don't mind losing a page and check luggage - just get a VOA.

It doesn't save you from fingerprinting. They got a new toy and they love to use it.

That is worth the few dollars and time to apply on-line! Indonesia does the same thing and total waste of a good page in one's passport.

Courtesy of the US gov. They've been employing the fingerprint machines since Aug 2011.

Is this VISA for business travel only or for tourists? What is the link? I would prefer to have the VISA before I depart and really do not want to mail my passport to the Cambodian Embassy. Thoughts?

Google is your friend. E-Visa is a tourist visa I believe.

Similar to wj I believe the evisa is a tourist one only.

If you need a business visa for extendability I'd just get it on arrival for the same $25 cost as the evisa.
