Businessmen and other travellers often have Cambodia as a lay over before moving on to Vietnam. The question is: How easy it is to get a visa to Vietnam from Cambodia? Here are 5 tips on how to best get your visa to Vietnam from Cambodia.

1 – You can apply for a visa at Vietnamese embassy in Phnom Penh or Vietnam consulates in Sihanouk Ville or in Batambang, Cambodia, at a fraction of price than you do it from home such as the US, UK and Australia. However, mind the wait and pick-up process, which can extend to almost 1 week.

2 – Visa on arrival is now available to all passengers flying from Cambodia to Vietnam. Make sure that you apply online in advance for the approval letter, since without this document; you will not be allowed on board.

3 – If you apply for a visa on arrival, make sure that you go with a trusted agency. The visa on arrival is a real business today and one simple search can yield a maze of results. Check whether the website providing service is recommended on other sites or not. Two most trusted agencies that get recommendations on famous papers and forums are: e-vietnamvisa.com and vietnamvisabooking.com

4 – Whether you apply for a visa on arrival or the traditional one at the embassy, make sure you have at least 2 passport-sized photos handy. It is cheaper to take those in Cambodia or Vietnam than back home.

5 – Visa on arrival can be done expedited within a morning or afternoon of the business working days. Contact the agency  and their customers support will let you know whether fast tracking service is available in your case.
