How To Apply for a Cambodia Visa?

There are multiple ways to apply for your tourist visa to Cambodia, that may include:

  1. Visa on Arrival (VOA)
    Visa on Arrival (VOA) is the preferred method for most travellers.
    Cambodia Visa is obtainable upon arrival at both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap International Airports in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. At land crossing from Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, visa can be obtained at International Check Point border.
  1. Visas via an Embassy or Consulate
    Tourists also can get their visas prior to their arrival through a Cambodian Embassy or Consulate overseas.
  1. E-visas
    The Cambodia e-Visa is a document that you can apply for, entirely online, if you want to travel to Cambodia with a little less trouble than usual.
    Your E-Visa will be processed based on the order of your entry date to Cambodia NOT in the order of your submission date. The E-visa is valid for 3 months and upon entry is valid for a 30-day stay, so you may submit your E-Visa request NOT EARLIER than 3 months before your entry date to Cambodia.
    E-visas can be applied for online at https://www.evisa.gov.kh/.
