Visa and Customs
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 price for a tourist visa is US$30, US$36 for a tourist e-visa, US$36 for a 1 month "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. If the overstay is 30 days or less, the charge is USD $5.00 per day; for overstays of more than 30 days, the charge is USD $6.00 per day.

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.


On the whole, Cambodian Customs are not fierce. Cambodian customs authorities only enforce strict regulations concerning temporary importation into or export from Cambodia of items such as drugs, firearms, antiquities, or ivory.

Items such as video equipment, cameras, radio cassette players, watches, pens, lighters and cosmetics are duty free in Cambodia.

Adult visitors are allowed to bring into Cambodia 200 cigarettes or the equivalent amount of tobacco, and one opened bottle of liquor and perfume for personal use.

Currency in possession must be declared on arrival, though normal toursits are usually not asked for it.

Cats and dogs require an additional Veterinarian Good Health and Rabies Inoculation Certificate.

For businessmen there are five major duty rates (including 0% rate) for imported goods, excluding vehicles which have special rates, as follows:

7% for primary products and raw material
15% for machinery and equipment
35% for finished products and government protected goods
50% for luxurious goods

For businessmen, it is advisable to contact a Diplomatic Representation of the Kingdom of Cambodia for specific information regarding customs requirements.
