Cambodia e-Visa or Electronic Visa (See
a sample) has been introduced by the Cambodian Government and fully
supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in April
2006 to promote the Cambodia tourism industry. The website
now serves as a platform for tourists to apply Cambodia tourist visa online.
With e-Visa, you do not have to visit the Cambodia Embassy/Consulate to apply your visa. No submission of documents is required during the application process because e-Visa process from application to approval is completely done via the online platform. The process is very straightforward whereby the applicants just need to fill up their details and submit the payment thru the secure payment gateway with their credit card.
Travelers need to print two copies (one for entry and one for exit) of the PDF
visa, cut out the visa parts and keep them with your passport.
*E-Visas are only valid for entry by air or at the three border main land crossings only (See the list). However, you may exit the country with E-visa via any border crossing.
