Cambodia visa information

Is an entry visa required for Cambodia?

Yes. Citizens of the UK, EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States and almost all other nationalities will require a visa to visit Cambodia.

Other nationalities should check with the Cambodian Embassy in their country of residence for the most up-to-date information.

Can the visa be arranged on arrival?

Yes, although if you are arriving in Cambodia by air, you can obtain your visa in advance of departure with the easy to use online e-visa service.

Most nationalities can also obtain their visa on arrival at either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh Airport for a fee of $30. Note: we recommend using the evisa service when possible as it saves unnecessary queuing upon arrival.

If you are arriving in Cambodia at a land border you must obtain your visa at your arrival point. The cost is $30 + approx approx $5 - $15 'stamping fee' (fee depends on the official's mood on the day!)

What is required to arrange the visa?

Online e-visa service: $37 (USD) payment to be made by credit or debit card, a scanned up-to-date photo of a good likeness (similar to passport photo style).

Upon arrival at the airport or at a land border: $30 to be paid in good condition USD notes and 1 up-to-date passport photos of a good likeness.

Nationalities that do not require a visa are: Filipino, Malaysian, Thai, Singaporean, Vietnamese, Laotian or Indonesian.

Nationalities that always require a visa before arrival (ie cannot use the visa on arrival service) are Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Sudan.

Obtaining your evisa

When entitled, by far the simplest way of obtaining your visa in advance is through the e-visa service.

The e-visa explained:

You can apply for your visa online if you are arriving in Cambodia at Siem Reap or Phnom Penh Airports. The visa is valid for three months from the date of issue and for a total visit of no more than 30 days. 

The e-visa is a simple to use service and will save time queuing at the airport after a long flight.
