If entering Cambodia by air, most nationalities will be granted a 30-day stay on arrival without needing a visa.
If you have a UK or US passport, you do not need a visa to enter Cambodia. You can stay for up to 30 days if arriving by air or up to 15 days if arriving by land.
This is referred to as a visa exemption. Upon arrival, you may be required to present your return ticket and complete a landing card.
If you plan to stay longer than 30 days, you must apply for a visa before traveling to Cambodia. It's important to avoid overstaying, as doing so may result in fines or detention. Double-check your departure date to ensure compliance. Please note that visa extensions can be obtained in Cambodia at any immigration office for a fee of approximately 2000THB. We recommend verifying the latest entry requirements by consulting your national foreign travel office. For UK citizens, this information can be found in the Foreign Travel Advice section of https://www.gov.uk.
If you intend to enter Cambodia multiple times via land borders during your travels, it is advisable to obtain a 60-day multiple entry visa from your embassy or consulate before you travel. This is preferable to attempting to obtain a visa at the border on multiple occasions, as it may lead to being denied re-entry into the country.
For the most up-to-date information on visa requirements, we suggest contacting the Cambodian embassy in your country. You can find more information at https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/cambodia.
