Cambodia:Clearing In and Out at Khao Kong

Cafe Laurent © Maremagna

We have just cleared into Cambodia at Khao Kong town. (12-12-13)  We have now up to date information about the clearing in and clearing out procedures.

We are at anchor off the delightful Cafe Laurent (owned by ex sailors who are happy to let you use their dock) in 8m about 500m below the bridge.

When you arrive at Khao Kong you take your clearance papers including your crew list etc. to the one and only agent, the KAMSAB agency, at the Asian Hotel (opposite the café).

You need your clearance papers later for Customs at the border to get an inbound stamp. This agent then calls the Immigration office at the border to announce your arrival. Immigration insist you use this agent.

Then you rent a motorbike (5 US $ a day) or take a tuk-tuk and go to the Customs and Immigration offices at the border across the toll bridge (15 minutes).

There, Immigration stamps your passport (it is smart to have an e-visa ready, 2 copies) and fingerprints you digitally. Customs merely stamped our clearance paper from Thailand with an inbound stamp.

Then you return the (stamped) clearance paper to the agent.

If you know your departure date the agent gives you the clearance papers for that date and you pay him his fee which is US$ 100.

If you don't know your departure date you have to come back to Khao Kong before you leave and you pay him then to get your clearance.

We are very happy with Noonsite and hope to help others with this info.

Regards,

Karin and Tony Stubbs.

As an update to above, we have just been through the clearing in and clearing out of Khao Kong. We moored opposite Cafe St. Laurent in about 4m of water and about 400m from the Cafe. This was due to the very shallow water and only small negotiable channels. On advice from the lady who owns the Cafe we moored here, and did not try to get any closer to shore. Prior to our departure from Thailand, we had been in email contact with KAMSAB who had requested upfront the documents to prepare in advance the entry permit into Cambodia. The next morning we were met by the KAMSAB agent who collected our passports and clearance documents from Thailand. The cost of vessel clearance was $300 and a cost of $20 per person for immigration. The agent then left us and returned 2 hours later with passports stamped into and out of Cambodia the next day and the port clearance papers for the vessel. All done. This left us with 1/2 day to enjoy the great food at Cafe St. Laurent and have a sightseeing tour around the town and local countryside. All very straightforward and all due to the efficient and helpful service provided by KAMSAB.
