PM to lobby Trump over US visa cost

Chea Vannak / Khmer Times No Comments Share:

Prime Minister Hun Sen plans to complain to President Donald Trump over the high fee being charged for Cambodians wanting to visit the United States.
 
Mr Hun Sen yesterday criticised the $150 fee and the fact it was not returnable in the event of a visa application being rejected.
 
He told graduating students at the National Institute of Education: “How can it be that if you get the visa you’re charged and if you to fail to get it you’re still charged?
 
“This is no problem for rich people but people who don’t have money have to borrow it and pay it to the US embassy.
 
“For that reason they get angry with America,” he said. 
 
 Embassy spokesman Jay R. Raman confirmed the fee was non-refundable, regardless of whether a visa was issued. The fee covered processing costs.
