TI into ordinary E visa w/out leaving cambodia?

Post by Gregor01 » Thu Nov 22, 2018 12:44 pm

dear all

i’m here on TI visa 30 days. did already my one 30 days extension.
i know i can do a visa run and apply for EG or EB at the border and will get EI when i come with no papers.
know also i hv another 30 days then to apply for EG/EB from inside cambodia.

my question, can i avoid the visa run?
can i apply for E without leaving the country after my 2nd 30 days of TI runs out?

just want to stay until may19 and try to avoid further runs as a tourist, so i need a 6 month E visa.

thanks and cheers
G.

can not convert tourist (T) to ordinary visa (E).

you need to do a border run.

you only get an EI at entry good for one month, then get an EG or EB extension.

can i get EG for 6 month directly at the border (land border, vietnam) without EI before? so i would save the costs for EI.

No ...EG is an EOS (extension of stay) category of the E-type Visa. EOS's cannot be obtained on arrival, they are all processed at the Dept. of Immigration in PP.

Also, there is no such thing as an EI Visa, it is the E-type (Ordinary) Visa, nor is there a TI Visa, it is the T-type (Tourist) Visa.

All Visa and EOS's issued by the DoI have an individual number, starting with the Visa type ie. "E", "T", "K", etc....followed by the letter "I" which indicates it was issued by the DoI...followed by numbers ie. TI1234567, KI1234567, so on and so on.

Visas and EOS's issued by the MoFAIC (whether in Cambodia or at an Embassy/Consulate abroad) have a number with the letter "F" instead of "I", ie. BF1234567, EF12345657, AF1234567,etc...
