e-Visa Overview

1. What is an e-Visa?

In order to travel to Cambodia, people of almost all nationalities, excluding Cambodia, are required to obtain a visa.
There are several types of visa. Among them, electronic visas that can be applied for over the internet are referred to as e-Visas.
Since e-Visas are applied for over the internet, they cannot immediately be issued on a passport when the application passes inspection. For that reason, they are issued by stamping the passport at an immigration inspection location of Cambodia.
In addition, in order to undergo the immigration inspection, the separate e-Visa Certificate*1 must be presented.

*1: Because the e-Visa is issued at the time of the immigration inspection, if you are denied entry to the country as a result of the immigration inspection, issuance of your e-Visa may also be denied.

2. What is an e-Visa Certificate?

If the application for an e-Visa passes, the government of Cambodia will issue an e-Visa Certificate. An e-Visa Certificate is a prerequisite for issuance of an e-Visa and part of the documentation necessary to undergo an immigration inspection.
An date, on which an e-Visa certificate expires, is 3 month later from the issuance date. Please travel to the Country within that period to have your e-Visa issued.
