I intend to enter cambodia on 9th january at Koh Kong and spend about 7-10 days in cambodia on my thai registered Ducati
,, will i have any problems doing this and also how many days will the thais give me when i re-enter 15 or 30 days ?????

My personal opinion, better enter through Osmach

Normally immigration Thailand give 30 days

went out at Ban Pakkad on Thursday on the Ducati with my mate Alex on his ER650 no problems only took 45 mins for both sides ,, but our other friend with Thai Mazda car needed Thai Miltary premission and copy of Tabien Baan as well as green book so they took 6 hours to process and the military office is 30kms down the road ,,, on Cambo side it only took him 30 mins to process,, its the Thais that are the problem , but now his car is on the database it wont be so bad next time they give cars 10 days max

the 57 highway was ok to battambang where we stayed one night then onto Siemriep for 3 days at the sights and nightlife ,, the highway from battambang to sissophon is being upgraded to 4 lane so its messy ,, from sissophon to Siem riep road is great ,,
we can back to siddophon then to road 59 from poipet to Pailin and baaan pakkad thats a lovely road with interesting countryside

crossing out into Thailand only took 40 mins and we were back in Pratayya 4 hours later last night good journey ,,
and good to know how to get 4 wheel vehicles into Cambodia as well.

my experiences of every journy by bike i have made into cambodia is that its exiting Thailand thats the biggest hassle a few year ago before i went out at Hatlek once refused second time thai side was a hassle cambo side much smoother .

On July 10, 2017, we have tried in vain to enter Cambodia via Poi Pet using our Singapore registered car, Thai and Cambodia official both warned us before hand, but we still gave it a shot, but failed spectacularly, end up doing a u turn back to Thailand, and up paying 1200 thb for the official to expedite the process of clearance.

Now that I've came across this posting, I'm kicking myself in the butt for not doing more research, and that would have saved me the hassle just by going thru O'smach. GRRRRR!!!!

Gonna give it one more try in time to come, but now that I have changed my SUV, I need to redo the suspension and alignment set up in my SUV to be able to travel overland with all that luggage, tools and spare fuel.

How time flies from my last visit to Laos and Cambodia, we`ve not given up to enter Cambodia again, this time with a new ride which is more capable, but does anyone have any updates with regards to entering Cambodia via O`smach with my Singapore SUV? Planning to do another loop again in mid 2024, not sure if it very hot or wet season.
1) Do I need to apply for Visa
2) Does my car need to apply for any permit?
3) "If" we manage to enter vis O`smach, can we easily exit any border crossing back to Thailand?
4) How do we purchase insurance over in Cambodia side?
5) Any covid measures in place? (Submission or pre departure covid test or ART test required?

1. No need to apply for a visa. Visa on arrival or Visa free - depending on your nationality.


2. I just read on another forum that a singapore plated motorbike enteres Cambodia at O’Smach. He got a 30 day TIP upon entering Cambodia. So not neccesary to apply for any permit before entering the country.

3. My understanding is that you have to tell where you plan to exit back to Thailand when you leave Thailand. I think its just a matter of that the officers need to fill that in on their form. If you exit at another place than mentioned I dont think that will be any problem, just say you changed your mind….

4. Not possible afaik

5. I am not updated on this matter - maybe some others are?

Just a quick question, once we enter Cambodia, lets say Osmach, can we exit Cambodia to Thailand via Cham Yeam using my SUV?
Where can I purchase the vehicle insurance once we enter Osmach?

Afaik - there is no insurance to buy for foreign vehicles in Cambo - so take it easy….
Yes you should be able to exit at Koh Kong/Cham Yeam. To be sure just tell the border officials that you want to exit at that bordercrossing.

Thanks Dodraugen for the information.

Hope all plans works out for this trip as we are crossing multiple country to do our road trip.
