Higher Visa fee for foreigners

Khmer Times Share:
This visa will cost US$30 come October, 2014

PHNOM PENH, August 16 (Khmer Times) – Cambodia has announced higher  Visa fee for foreigners who wish to visit Cambodia, according to a statement by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
A statement by the Ministry said that the fee is as follows: USD30 for tourist Visa (Type T), and USD 35 for business Visa (Type E). 
Currently the Visa fee is at USD20 and USD25.
Travel agents and airlines had mixed feelings about these raise as they claimed that while Cambodia was trying to boost tourism, it was indirectly impeding it with higher visa fee.
“Many countries are doing away with visa fee or a single visa for multiple countries and here, where tourism is big business, the Government is increasing visa fee, which for tourists represents a 50 percent increase,”  one travel agent who handles in bound tours said.
