The Two Ways to Get a Visa



The Cambodian government has a simple online application for an e-visa. It is a straightforward procedure and your visa is delivered electronically to you after around three days and costs $30 plus $7 administration fee (total $37).

Cambodai e-Visa

You will not have to wait at the immigration desk and can proceed directly to passport control on arrival. This is the fastest and most efficient method, and is now our recommended method.

The e-visa is currently valid at Phnom Penh and Siem Reap Airports, as well as Poipet, Bavet (Sveireang) and Koh Kong (Chenyien) border crossings.



Visa On Arrival

You can obtain a Visa on arrival at your port of entry. Fill in the straightforward arrival documents which you will receive in on the plane or at the border and will require one passport-size photograph. The fee is currently US$30, paid in cash.

e-Visa On Arrival

Please note that the Cambodian Tourist visa is a full page sticker so ensure that you have enough room in your passport as well as at least 6 months validity on your passport. At peak arrival times there may be waiting time for the visa on arrival to be processed but is otherwise a simple and routine process. ABOUTAsia can also help with VIP arrangements.

All of this information is subject to change - you must check immigration policies prior to travel.
