CAMBODIA VISA INSTRUCTIONS

Below are some useful information to help facilitate the process for applying for a Cambodia visa.


WHO NEEDS A VISA FOR CAMBODIA

Most nationalities require a visa to enter Cambodia with the following exceptions:

30 days without a visa:  Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam and Singapore
21 days without a visa:  Philippines
14 days without a visa:  Thailand

METHODS FOR APPLYING FOR A CAMBODIA VISA:

There are three methods of applying for a Cambodia Entry Visa :

(1)   Visa From a Cambodian Embassy (Single­Entry Visa)
(2)  E-Visa
(3)  Visa on Arrival 

Given both Visa on Arrival and E-Visas are processed quite efficiently, we recommend our travelers going with one of these two options (2) or (3) if you will be arriving in one of Cambodia’s International Airports (Siem Reap or Phnom Penh). This will avoid having to send in your original passport to the Cambodian Embassy. 

APPLYING FOR VISA FROM A CAMBODIAN EMBASSY:

A Visa to Cambodia can be applied for by MAIL or IN PERSON at the Consular Office of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Washington DC.  4530 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20011 – Tel: (202)-997-7031

Applying for a Tourist or Business Visa by mail should be completed at least 3 weeks before your departure date from the country. Contact the Cambodia consular office for any urgent request.  If applying for a business visa, supporting documentation such as a letterhead from your company and/or invitation from Cambodia is necessary.

Visas will be provided free of charge for children aged under 12 years old if traveling with their parents.
