Cambodia Visa Guide
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!

EXTENSION OF YOUR 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.

OVERSTAYING 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.
