Thinking about travelling? And have you been fussing about getting a visa? If your destination is Southeast Asia, put your worries to rest, because getting a visa is as easy as rolling off a log. Are you looking for the best place to shop for quality hotel accommodation? Look no further. Asiapacifichotels.com.au is home to world class hotels with amazing amenities to suit your every needs. Only a handful of locations within that region requires you have a visa beforehand and the better part; the visas can be prepared in 5 days or less.
Brunei: A free 72-hours transit visa is available at the border with Sabah and Sarawak (Borneo). Staying longer than that requires a visa; cost and length varies with nationality.
Cambodia: 30 days visa is available at land borders and airports. Payment is cheaper in USD than in Thai baht.
Indonesia: 30 days visa which costs $25 is available at seaports and airports. However, this can be extended for another 30 days. We recommend you apply for a 60 day visa at the embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which costs less (about $55) and save time for more sightseeing.
Laos: A 30 day visa is available at the border and airport in Laos. Price depends on nationality, as the Canadians pay the highest compared to what the Americans, Germans and Australians pay
Malaysia: A free, 90 days visa is available at airports and land borders to most western countries. The visa includes Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo.
Myanmar: As it has no open border with its surrounding countries, flying there is the only option and thus you need a visa beforehand. 28 days is the maximum but once in the country you can apply for a 14 day extension at Bangkok.
Philippines: A free 21 days visa is available at the airport. Also, you can extend by a 21 day period when in the Philippines or apply for a 59 day visa beforehand at the Philippines embassy.
Singapore: Free 30-90 days visa is available at land borders and airports though it varies according to nationality but applies to all western countries.
Thailand: Free 30 days visa on arrival at the airport for most nationalities but by land you get a free 15 day visa. Apply for visa (if staying for 60 days) at the Thai embassy. Citizens of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru and South Korea can stay up to 90 days. Travellers with UK, US, Japanese, German, French, Canadian and Italian passports are eligible for a 30 day visa-free entry when entering Thailand by a land crossing.
Vietnam: You will have to get a visa in Advance. This can be obtained at the embassy in the country you are located in. If you happen to be in Cambodia, all you need is to give your passport, two passport photos, and some cash to the hotel where you stay. In Thailand, many agencies can arrange it for a small fee.
A visa in Southeast Asia is actually nothing to loose sleep over. Always check the embassy for details on time, and then visit with your passport and passport photos during application hours for paperwork and return the following day during pick up hours to obtain your passport. Countries that don’t require visas just stamp a visa on arrival (VOA) when you show up at their borders with your passport.
