Govt eyes visa frauds

OFFICIALS at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are actively trying to shut down three unauthorised websites offering electronic travel visas, a ministry official told the Post Monday.

Koy Kuong, an undersecretary of state at the ministry, said officials are investigating who is behind the sites. When they find this out, he said, they will shut the sites down.

"These websites make trouble and difficulty for the tourists," Koy Kuong said Monday.

The ministry released a statement Saturday identifying the sites as:  www.cambodiaonarrival.com, www.cambodiaevisa.com, and www.welove

cambodia.com. The statement noted that the only website authorised to issue electronic visas was the ministry's: www.mfaic.gov.kh.

Koy Kuong said the ministry could not provide information on how many tourists had fallen victim to the fraudulent sites.

All three unauthorised websites were still accessible early Monday evening.
