[updated 2019] CAMBODIA VISA GUIDE:

Visa Free Countries For USA Passport Holders - Cambodia Visa

Cambodia has quite a straightforward rule about visas. There are only 7 nations that have visa exemption entering and travelling in Cambodia. Even though, Cambodia remains one of the top visited countries in Southeast Asia, both for young travellers and family travellers.

Visa on arrival system and e-visa are well prepared for travellers who wish to visit Cambodia for a certain period of time. Although visa scams are scattered throughout the land borders (Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand), everyone who is flying in the country shouldn't face this problem. Before you arrive, make sure you have your Cambodia visa ready.

    It's very easy to get a Cambodian e-visa. I highly suggest you to get it online. If you are crossing the land border from Thailand to Cambodia, it is known to be a border with many scams. Getting the visa online will avoid this situation. I recommend you to get your e-visa here, I've used their services many times when I help my friends to get a visa.


    Most travellers decide on leaving Cambodia and come back the next day, although this has been also a pain when dealing with land borders as I mentioned above. You can extend your visa for a fee of US$45, however, most travellers who have done this said that it takes a lot of time and bribes in between. You can also walk up to any travel agencies and let them do the job. The processing days takes about 2-3 days, the prices vary depending on the agent's fee. At the moment, renewing of visa is not possible online.

    Things To Know When You Arrive In Cambodia


    Overstaying in Cambodia shouldn't be a problem if you're planning to overstay for a day or two. Overstay fee is US$10 per day. Overstaying for 30 days can be solved by paying the fee, however, there's a big risk in facing imprisonment, travel ban, or deportation.

    Travelling in Cambodia is pretty easy to be honest and probably one of the most beautiful and affordable countries I've been. If you have a question about visa in Cambodia, leave your comment below!
