Business Visa nightmare

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Leave Cambodia and then return via air, apply for E-type (Ordinary/Business) Visa on arrival with your South African passport, simple!

Thanks for getting back to me. Do you mean leave Cambodia with Namibian Passport and return to Cambodia with my South African. Will immigration not question why my South African passport says that I have not left South Africa

Leave Cambodia on Namibian passport, return on South African...Cambodian Immigration will not look for departure stamps from other countries. Most developed nations don't even stamp their citizens in/out These days anyway, it's all electronic.

If they do ask,then just show them your Namibian passport.

Simple!

Oh, and be aware, there is No guarantee that you will be issued an E-type VOA with a Sth African passport, even though technically you're eligible.

Where are you now? How did you get back into Cambodia when denied a visa in Malaysia?

You need leave on passport you entered on,
Cambodia does NOT border Malaysia

Fly to anywhere https://help.skyscanner.net/hc/en-us
and fly back,enter on SA passport, pay $35 for E visa.... make sure u have a photo

Immigration at airports does not look for departure stamps, Land borders do
