OCI International Retreat 2019

People pulling on the same side of a rope.
A muscle that increases the effectiveness of another muscle.
This is synergy.
This is what God is calling us to.
Through Jesus.

Transportation

Book flights into Siem Reap-Angkor International Airport (REP). You may also find it's more affordable to travel to a hub (Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, or Hong Kong) and then book a separate roundtrip ticket to Siem Reap. We will contact to you beginning March 1 to collect your itinerary information, which will be due by March 15. You will be provided with additional ground transportation information shortly thereafter.

What if I'm unable to stay for the full retreat? Can I receive a discount?

We hope your schedule will free up so you can spend the entire retreat with us, but we understand that may not be possible. Since OCI Retreats are all inclusive and based on package prices with the venue, we are only able to offer two packages: full registration and daily registration. OCI members, their students, and OCI board members automatically receive a discount, but no other discounts are available at this time.

What is the cancellation and substitution policy?

A full refund less processing fees are always granted in case of illness. In any other case, a full refund less processing fees is granted until Monday, February 4. Attendee substitutions granted until Monday, March 25 at 9:00 am EDT.

How do I get a visa?

Tourist visas are available upon arrival. You do not need to apply for a visa in advance. You’ll be given the paperwork on the plane and at the airport (Application Form Visa on Arrival, Arrival/Departure Card, and Customs Declaration Form). After landing and entering the Siem Reap airport, look for the "Visa on Arrival" signs, and get in line.

You will need to present:

  • Passport with 6 months validity and two blank pages
  • US$30 cash in exact change
  • 3 above-mentioned forms, completed
  • 1 passport photo (4 x 6 cm)

Note: If you do not bring a photo, you will be charged US$2-$3 extra.

Vaccinations

No specific vaccinations are required to enter Cambodia.
