Is it possible to apply for Cambodia Visa on Arrival?
The answer is YES. It’s possible for a lot of countries except Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka or Sudan.
For tourists who come from Indonesia, Laos, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines, they don’t need a Visa to visit Cambodia. They just need to have a valid Passport for at least 6 months.
Requirements to apply Cambodia Visa on Arrival
- A Passport valid at least a minimum of 6 months
- A recent self-portrait photo 4×6
- USD 30$ Cash for the processing fee.
Why not apply for e-visa?
The most convenient way is to apply for an e-visa in advance. The cost to process an e-visa is USD 36$. It’s USD 6$ higher than the cost of the visa on arrival but it will save you time.
You don’t have to queue and fill in the information then wait at the police immigration counters.

The only inconvenience is that we can apply only for the tourist visa (T). We cannot apply e-visa for business or diploma or K (Khmer) visa which is a visa for Cambodian people who hold a foreign passport.
A tourist visa valid for 30 days. Then we can extend for another one month. If you plan to stay longer than two months, you need to leave the country then come back again for applying for a business visa which could valid up to 1 year with multiple entries.
To extend your visa, you can contact a local travel agent, or you can apply on your own at the Immigration department which is located in front of Phnom Penh International Airport.
