As PSD pointed out, the official price is $45, and it seems Lucky Lucky will do it for you for $47.

Unless you have a valid personal grievance against Lucky Lucky, I'd say that's your best bet is to do it at Lucky's, as I can't see any more effort on your part being worth saving $2, which also seems reasonable.

They often offer the best rates, so I doubt you'd find cheaper than $47 always.
Good advice, thank you.

what it will cost you going to and from the office is pointless to only try and save $5 if you was doing a year extension or something then it would probably be worth the effort

What is the price of a one-year EB visa extension at Lucky's. Anyone done one recently?

Last I heard Lucky we’re charging $285 for a 12 mth EB EOS. $170 is the official price from the DoI...but they’ll still try charging you $270+

Ok! That being the agent price. What documentation is required. In KK I have been told by the agent I would need my passport, work permit, business licence, permit of stay, rent agreement, and so on.
I have all so no problem. But I was just wondering what other agents would ask for? And I have also been told some hike up the price with all the paperwork involved.
Anyone done this recently? :hattip:

Is 45 the written, official price at immigration?
My hotel wants 53 and I just called lucky lucky to ask them for their BEST price, and they said 47. Any agents better than Lucky Lucky?

It's a matter of principle too. John, I travel around nowadays so often use the 1-2 month tourist visa. Thanks
Ask yourself if you were an agent, would you work for free?
I wouldn't take a job profiteering off visas, real estate or Work Permits, so the question doesn't arise. :D

Agreed. Lucky Lucky charging $2 over the amount it costs to do it yourself near the airport is shameful.

Yes, it's all relative. Someone's relative.

2 dollars for Lucky Lucky seems fair, but we don't know what type of discount they're getting from immigration,
also my hotel wanted an additional 6 dollars over the 47 and all they need to do is deliver it to Lucky Lucky which is about a 1000 riel moto ride from here.
That's a bit suspicious. Yeah I know everyone wants to get rich quick, but that 6 bucks is just fine in my pocket where it remains.
