Visa for Cambodia application
The Cambodia visa
Travelling to Cambodia is only possible if you possess the mandatory Cambodia visa. This can easily be applied for online; you will then receive the visa by e-mail. The costs are £59,95 per person.
The Coronavirus / Covid-19 has led to the immigration service taking temporary measures. These also apply to travellers that already posess a Cambodia visa. New visa applications can still be submitted, however.
In any case, travellers from France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United States of America will no longer be allowed on Cambodian territory, even if it is only for the purpose of a transfer or transit. This measure may be extended to additional countries in the short term and will apply at least until 13 April 2020. Despite these restrictions, it is still possible to submit an online visa application, for example for travellers that are not considered risk cases, or who will be travelling after 13 April. However, e-Visa.co.uk does not offer any guarantees that no additional measures will be taken which might lead to travel plans being changed or cancelled. Due to its nature (force majeure), damages that arise from the Coronavirus measures generally cannot be recovered anywhere.

For tourists that want to stay in the country for less than 30 days, there is the possibility of applying for the visa entirely online. In that case, travellers don’t need to make an appointment at the embassy in London. Apply for the Cambodia visa now.
Validity of the visa
The Cambodia visa has a validity term of 90 days and a maximum length of stay of 30 days. The validity term commences right from the moment that your application is approved by the immigration service. Usually this happens within 24 hours or at maximum several days after applying. If you submit your application more than 30 days before arriving in Cambodia, it will be processed exactly 30 days before your date of arrival, so that the visa is valid for your entire stay. You can only enter and leave the country during the overall validity term of 90 days. Take note: you can only travel to Cambodia once with each visa. More information about the validity can be found on the page concerning the Cambodia visa validity.

Apply for the Cambodia visa
How does applying for the Cambodia visa work? The procedure consists of three simple steps. First of all, you fill in the Cambodia visa application form. Next, you pay for the visa, which can be done with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or PayPal. The costs are £59,95 per person (including for children). Finally, you are asked to upload a passport photo and passport scan. This can be done very easily through the online upload tool, in which virtually all file formats and sizes are accepted, and where you can easily crop the images.
As soon as your application is received, it is manually checked and then forwarded to the immigration service for processing. If any mistakes or incompleteness are suspected, you will be contacted directly, so that you can correct the application. However, not all input mistakes can be tracked down, so always take great care that you fill in and provide the right information.
When do I need to apply for my Cambodia visa?
You can submit your application everywhere, at any time; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even during the weekend and on holidays. It doesn’t matter if you are still at home or already abroad. However, you can only enter Cambodia once your visa application has been approved. Are you arriving in more than a month’s time? Then your application is put on hold until exactly 30 days before departure. This is because the validity term starts right after approval. This way, your Cambodia visa is valid from 30 days before the filled in date of arrival until up to 60 days after (in total 90 days). This gives you the freedom to postpone the exact date of arrival. Do you urgently need your visa? Then you can also submit an urgent application.
Need an urgent delivery in 24 hours? If you wish to make use of the urgent procedure, an additional fee of £17,50 is charged. These costs are added to the base price of the visa by selecting the option “Urgent” in the form. These applications are processed faster, often within 24 hours. However, the immigration service cannot offer any guarantees on the delivery times (even when urgent).
