Visa Extention (3-Month Cambodian Business Visa)

Postby ram28 » Mon Jan 11, 2016 2:48 pm

I have Cambodia business visa valid for 3 months. Whether this can be extended for one year after a short stay of 10 days?

its only valid for 1 month stay, valid for 3 months to use
so go extend it now

3 , 6, 1 year extension ( 6 an 1 year are multiple entries)

I think he means he has a 3 month extension as there is no 3 month visa. You used to be able to extend it as soon as you wanted but that may have changed.

What people are saying is that what you have now is actually called a "visa extension" not a visa itself.

Yes, you can extend for another 12 months from Lucky Lucky, but they take longer than they used to, so you might want to talk to them about how long it will take and do it the sooner the better.

As others have said, your visa is good for 1 month at the moment.
No idea if you will have the time to get your extension in 1 week, or if they will issue an extension so soon after arrival. Take care that you won't get held up by the Chinese New Year ( this year it is Feb 8 ) - this is not a public holiday, but things can be slow and some places close.

apply for your 1 year EXTENSION as soon as you want to via an travel agent , they all do it.

What the posters are saying ram28 is you have a 3-month window to use your 30-day visa. Once in country, immediately go to a travel agent and buy an extension. It may take a few days to get your passport back.
