Free visas pledge

T ourism minister Veng Sereyvuth said visitors should finally be able to enjoy

visa free stays in the country by the end of April.

The Royal Government

had promised that from the start of March it would waive fees for two-week

visas, having previously charged $20 for one-month stays.

But after

reading news stories in the international press, angry tourists found themselves

continuing to be charged for their visas on arrival at Pochentong


Sereyvuth said on March 18: "We have been delayed by the late

arrival of machinery needed to register tourist arrivals but we expect to

receive it in the next four, five or six weeks."

It is not all good news

for tourists though as airport departure tax may be hiked from $8 to $20.
