New Cambodian visa>>

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

That's a shame, and if you have to leave every 30 days why bother?

I asked at a Vietnam Visa website and they responded:

Currently, one year visa ( for tourist multiple entry ) is available for Australian.
Approval letter fee: $450/person & Stamping fee you will pay at the airport: $135/person.


Kind of expensive!

^^^ Yep. A backdoor Viet business visa runs $550US to $650US, according to various expat FB pages. I used to be able to get 6-month biz visas (forgot the price) just by applying via a PP agent. Fairly reasonable. But VN has officially limited visas to 3 months, say many PP agents. The backdoor, in-country ones have proven a problem for some, with agent-supplied visas sometimes not being entered into the Viet system. People have been deported or refused entry, followed by very costly fines and fees.
