Visa for Cambodia
All visitors, except citizens of Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, need a visa to enter Cambodia. A passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond the date of entry into Cambodia with at least one completely blank visa page remaining, plus two passport-sized (4cm by 6cm) photographs, are required to apply for a visa. It can be issued on arrival at the international airports and at all major border crossings. Cambodia offers on-line visa processing, too, on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation website. But E-Visas are only valid for entry by air or at the three border main land crossings only: Bavet (on the Ho Chi Minh City-Phnom Penh road); Koh Kong (near Trat in Eastern Thailand); and Poipet (on the Bangkok-Siem Reap road).You may also apply in person at a Cambodian Embassy or Consulate. Tourist visas are valid for one month beginning with the date of entry into Cambodia. Those issued in advance expire 90 days after issue.
The official rates for a tourist visa depend on your country of origin and the length of your stay, of course, and on group sice and whether you apply for e-visa or visa-on-arrival, and visa type, e.g. besides the "tourist visa" there is the "ordinary visa" also known more commonly as "business visa" or "Visa-E". The major difference between a tourist and an ordinary visa is that a tourist visa can only be extended once, for maximum 2 months of stay in Cambodia, whereas an ordinary (=business) visa can be extended for periods up to a year and more. Only ordinary visas have multiple entry status when and only when extended.
Cambodia imposes fines for overstay of an expired visa.
Foreign nationals of some countries from South Asia and Africa are recommended to apply for a Business visa at the Cambodian missions in their own countries. Some nationalities are also required to get tourist visas in advance at Royal Embassy of Kingdom of Cambodia in their country: Afghanistan, Algeria, Arab Saudi, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Nigeria.
