Cambodia e-Visa: Basic Information
A Cambodia e-Visa is an updated form of the traditional Embassy visas that dominated travel in the 20th century. This form of travel authorization has many nicknames, including electronic visa and eVisa, but they all mean the same thing: a simplified visa process for travelers.

Whether you're looking forward to visiting the enchanting natural landscape or exploring the rich culture of Phnom Penh and other cities, obtaining an eVisa before your trip is a key way to improve your peace of mind during your travel to Cambodia.
The eVisa application process is streamlined and can be completed through this website. Applicant are asked to fill out a form, upload a recent photo and the bio-data page of their passport, and pay by card or another accepted payment method. Each approved Cambodia visa will be sent to the applicant's email address within 3 business days. The visa application fee is 99 euros.
Types of eVisa
Cambodia currently offers one e-Visa type: the electronic tourist visa. The definition of "tourism" includes non-business activities such as going on vacation, visiting friends and relatives, enjoying the many natural and man-made wonders of Cambodia, etc. The tourist visa also covers travel through Cambodia for transit purposes; i.e., passing through Cambodia on your way somewhere else.
For travelers wishing to enter Cambodia for any other purpose, including business and medical treatment, we recommend that you contact a Cambodian Embassy to obtain a traditional visa.

The application will also ask you for some information about yourself, such as your passport number and home address. The information you provide about your personal and passport details must be 100% accurate, or your application will not be accepted. You'll also be asked for an email address, to which your confirmation and your approved visa for Cambodia will be sent.

In the next step, travelers are asked to upload digital copies of their passports to their applications. Each traveller must provide a scan or digital photo of the bio-data page of their passport. Visa requirements dictate that passports must be valid at least 6 months past their desired date of entry to Cambodia, and have at least two blank pages at the time of entry.
