Cambodian visa in Bangkok.If you go to the Cambodian embassy can you get a visa the same day?
How much are they via the KSR and what is the cost & how long do they take to process?

1Yes, but it's still a two-part process. Apply in a.m. session, go back late arvo and pick up.
Don't know price of KSR "service" but obviously it's more the USD 20. Always did my own.
You can of course get the visa on arrival at the border if you're not the type to be easily scammed. Same fee, no extras, just form and photo. Only the gullible pay more/have problems with touts.

2Cheers BB. I did read a blog somewhere that said it was $25 at the embassy but details of the process were sadly lacking. Am and Pm, that makes complete sense.
The only reason I ask is that I want to enter in the South and the last time I went through that border maybe 6 years ago it was a huge pain in the arse. Ok, it cost me maybe $23 but I know people have paid between 1000 - 1500 baht for a 600 baht visa.
Is the online service working at the moment? anyone used it recently?

4lol. Thanks for the input state49. Yikes huh? Oh dear.
It's like this. I live in Thailand and have done for the best part of 7 years. I first went to Cambodia in 2002 when they were running scams on all of the Thai borders. You won't remember this, maybe you can find a book about it. I want an easy life and i'll be in Bangkok for a couple of days anyway. I would rather give some travel agent an extra $5 rather than sit in that shitty room again arguing the toss with some dick because he wants 900 baht tea money even though I had 3 Cambodian visas in my passport already @ $20. But I guess as you've never actually been in that position you have no idea what you are talking about.
My advice, stick to the topics you actually know something about which I'm guessing are the FMP because you once went but didn't like it and possibly Samui and CM.

6I was in Kota Bura in December 2010 and it was fine. Got off the train in Hat Yai and bus down to the border. The crossing was fine. Quiet, just Asians really. No problems on the bus apart from the 20 or so police/military check points. I was the only whitey on the bus.
If the Embassy is somewhere semi accessible in Bkk I will for sure.
I could fly, that is the other sensible option.

12Theres a little soi running from the wat on Soi Rambuttri and it takes you through to Th Pra Athit.
Sorry, bad advice as I dont have the address for where the Embassy was at the time. This is more current and easier to follow. To get there take the MRT to Huai Kwong. Take the exit which leads to Pracharat Bamphen rd. You will come out at cross roads. Take a left on to Pracharat Bamphen. From here you can either take a moto or jump on a red sangteaw to the Embassy. Maybe ask the driver before you get in for the cambodian embassy.
