CAMBODIA evisa, apply your visa online now possible
CAMBODIA today launches a new website for e-visa applications and has announced that visa prices will be raised on October 1 for both leisure and business travellers.
Both announcements were made in a series of statements issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation last week.
From today, e-visa applications will be hosted at evisa.gov.kh
, in place of the previous evisa.mfaic.gov.kh
A single-entry e-visa with three months’ validity for a 30-day stay now costs US$20, with a mandatory US$7 charge for processing. From October 1, an e-visa will cost US$30 instead.
Similarly, foreigners can expect to pay US$30 upon arrival, while business travellers will have to shell out US$35 from October 1.
The Phnom Penh Post quoted tourism minister Thong Khon saying that the increase was justified by the rising cost of visas in neighbouring countries, and that Cambodia’s entry fees have not been revised since 1997.
Thong Khon said he believed the increase would not impact tourist numbers, and that the Cambodian government is still looking to extend visa-free entry to more countries. http://www.dongtravel.com/travelnews/cambodia-evisa #nq
