Cambodia is one of the most impressive countries in Southeast Asia, although many people only pass through Cambodia during their visit to the temples of Angkor Wat.
In Cambodia you are going to find, together with the neighboring country of Myanmar, with very nice people and willing to help the tourist and in general with some infrastructures and tourist attractions a little less saturated than in other countries of the Southeast Asia as they can be Thailand or Vietnam.
How to get your visa for Cambodia
To enter Cambodia you need a tourist visa that allows you to stay in the country for one month. If you want to extend your stay you should apply for a business visa, which allows you to stay in the country for more days and you can also enter and leave without restrictions.
Although when we talk about the word visa images of bureaucracy and paperwork come to mind, the visa to enter Cambodia can be obtained at the same airport when you land.
If you don’t want to queue up with the rest of the tourists who also need a visa to enter the country, you can always apply for the e-Visa online.
Visa for Cambodia upon arrival
The so-called Visa on arrival is the easiest to obtain and you can get it at all airports and borders in the country when you arrive, whether you arrive by land or by air.
If you enter Cambodia through a border control that is quite far away or not very busy, you may find the typical policeman asking you for more money than the legally set fee for this service, although this is not very common. This is even less common if you enter Cambodia through one of its main airports.
Requirements for obtaining a visa on arrival
To get the visa on arrival you will only need
Your passport, which must have an expiry date of 6 months or more on the day of your arrival
One passport size photo
Pay the corresponding fee, which is currently $30 (we recommend that you bring US dollars)
The disadvantage of applying for a visa on arrival is that you will have to queue and wait with the rest of the passengers who also need one, in addition to having to fill out documentation regarding immigration.
If the arrival of your flight coincides with the arrival of other tourists you will have to queue for a long time, so if you want to avoid waiting we recommend you to apply for the electronic visa. OneMoreDestination can help you with all the visa procedures and applications so you don’t have to worry about anything.

A passport photo

As we have said, the great advantage of obtaining the visa for Cambodia telematically is that you will not have to queue with the rest of the passengers who need an arrival visa. You will only need to go to the immigration counter where they will stamp your entry to the country. OneMoreDestination.com recommends you to do it this way, and if you prefer to focus on the general organization of the trip we can take care of it ourselves.
Where to get the e-Visa for Cambodia
The electronic visa can be obtained through the government website, also through companies specialized in managing visas for different countries of the world or we can take care of it ourselves.
Electronic visa through the official website of the Government of Cambodia
The official website of the Cambodian Government can sometimes be a bit chaotic and not work properly, like the vast majority of websites in many countries of the world. If on the day you want to do the paperwork the website doesn’t work we recommend you to go to one of the other options. If you do it through the official government website, it’s just a matter of filling in all the information requested (we can request up to 5 visas at once), making the payment online and waiting for the confirmation email which normally takes between 1 and 2 days.
Electronic visa through an external company
There are many visa management companies that for a small surcharge take care of all the paperwork themselves.
