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.
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.
