Cambodia Country Guide

Getting In



Citizens of most nations can apply for an e-Visa (online application for a visa) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation ( website, through a service provided by a private Cambodian company. This is a normal Tourist Visa but costs USD28 instead of the normal USD20. The visa arrives as a PDF file by e-mail within 3 working days. 
Save on your hotel -
The application requires a digital photograph of yourself (jpg format). You can scan your passport photo or have a passport sized photograph taken with a digital camera. There are other websites claiming to make a Cambodian e-visa. At best, these are just online travel agencies which will charge you more (USD30-USD45) and get the same USD28 visa for you. At worst, you may end up with a fake e-visa.

You need to print two copies of the PDF visa (one for entry and one for exit), cut out the visa parts and keep them with your passport. E-Visas are only valid for entry by air (Phnom Penh Airport and Siem Reap Airport) or at the three land border crossings only i.e.: 
  • Bavet - Ho Chi Minh City-Phnom Penh road;
  • Koh Kong - Near Trat in Eastern Thailand; and
  • Poipet - Bangkok-Siem Reap road. 
However, you may exit the country with an e-visa via any border crossing.
