[updated 2019] CAMBODIA VISA GUIDE:
Visa-Free, Evisa, Visa On ArrivaI
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.

Here is a short list of nationalities that are visa free for Cambodia to enter and travel.
VISA ON ARRIVAL COUNTRIES; How much is a visa on arrival
Cambodia visa on arrival countries are those who are not on the list of visa-free. It's pretty easy and straightforward, however, if you are crossing the border to Cambodia (either from Thailand, Vietnam or Laos), you should be aware of the scams on the border.
Don't talk to anyone who will offer you a fast track or cheap visa, all you should do is go straight ahead to the immigration office and only transact to the immgiration officials.
Prepare your passport photo plus US$30 for a single entry 30 days visa. All nationals of every country are entitled to get a visa on arrival. Check the visa policy map here.
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.
EXTENSION OF YOUR CAMBODIA 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.
