    On my last business trip to Cambodia, I used an online application run by the Cambodian government;

    https://www.evisa.gov.kh/

    It was quick and easy and cost $30.

    I now find that I can no longer load the page (I’ve been trying on and off for a week).

    Does anyone know if this service has been withdrawn?

    Other sites promoting online visa’s want to charge upwards of £85.

    Looks like a technical issue rather than a service withdrawal (at least, I’d hope if they were withdrawing it they’d put up a holding page rather than just switching off the server 😉

    For what it’s worth, I used it about ten days ago and it was working fine.

    Thank you. I will leave it a few days and try again.

    …SDT…a word of caution…I used the e-visa for Cambodia a couple of months ago for a 2-day business trip…and was read the riot act as this was a tourist visa and apparently, from what I could gather I should have applied for a business visa…they still let me in…so be careful with your response when passing through immigration…

    Thanks for the ‘heads up’ on that Ekond222 – it’s appreciated.
    My last visit was in March and I couldn’t print off the paperwork at my hotel in Kuala Lumpur so I arrived with visa but without paperwork. They just scowled at me and asked why it wouldn’t print…I said I had no idea why, they let me through eventually albeit as a tourist.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the e-Visa service when I used it for the first time last year. It was a few weeks before my birthday, which they obviously picked up from my passport, and on the day itself they emailed me:

    Best Wishes to you for a very Prosperous, Successful, Healthy and Happiness in your life.

    On your birthday we are, Cambodia e-Visa team, wishing you have a good luck and have another year of accomplishments, opportunity, and personal growth.

    We send you our sincerest wishes for a Happy Birthday. Wishing you many happy returns of the deay!

    Finally, thank you very much for using our e-Visa service always to Cambodia.

    Nice touch, I thought.

    This has appeared today….

    Edited to add – There is now a banner on the site saying that it’s being upgraded and will return soon…..when, is anybody’s guess.
    For some reason the picture would not attach to this note?

    For anyone interested – the site is back up and running, here – https://www.evisa.gov.kh/
