At the beginning of March 2019, we came to Cambodia by land, via the Vietnamese-Cambodian border post of Moc Bai/Bavet... By hitchhiking, and especially without going through an agency! As a result, we got our tourist visa for Cambodia quite quickly, and at the right price - i.e. without paying baksheesh to corrupt customs officers. Here, we give you a feedback on our experience!
Visas & Border crossing
Obtaining visas on the road, crossing borders by land or sea… Simple procedures on paper, which can be much more complicated in real life! Let us help you to overcome them thanks to our experience, so there will be no more physical borders, no more administrative barriers that will stop you!
When we entered Laos by land with our French passports, we hadn't taken any steps in advance: indeed, it's quite possible to get your visa directly on the spot - which saves a lot of time, energy and paperwork!
In order to continue our adventure towards Central Asia, we had to travel through Turkmenistan. Problem: this country, rather closed, is known to regularly refuse visa applications, without any valid reason... We still tried our luck by making a request for a transit visa transit for Turkmenistan in Teheran, Iran. And we got it!
When we stopped in Armenia during our hitchhiking World trip, we decided to also explore the self-independent republic of Nagorno-Karabagh (Karabakh or Artsakh), a region still in conflict but well worth the detour!
