Coming to Cambodia? You are gonna need a visa, and you might want to consider spending a bit more money to get the most out of your trip to the Kingdom Of Wonder. The visas for Cambodia are a fairly painless process, when I arrived in Phnom Penh by air, receiving my visa only took a little cash and a short wait in line. There are a few types of visas you can get in Cambodia, but I’m only going to talk about the Tourist Visa and the E Visa since most people won’t need a diplomatic visa. A few nations have/are restricted from visiting Cambodia so check with your nation’s authorities or online beforehand. The Tourist visa in Cambodia runs around 20 dollars, it lasts 1 to 3 months and you will have to leave the country or go on a “border run” when it expires. With a tourist visa you can travel around within the country and enjoy all the amazing sights the kingdom of wonder has to offer. The E-visa is slightly more expensive than the tourist visa but allows one to work in Cambodia, rent property or partake in other business type things. With an E-visa it will be much easier to extend your stay as it can be renewed without leaving the country. The E-visa is available as a 1month, 3 month, 6 month and 1 year. The longer the visa stay the cheaper the price per day, you can also get a 6 month and 1 year e-visa, with multiple entry into the country, which may be better indeed for the traveler who intends to come and go for business or who intends to travel the whole region on their vacation. Visa service at the Airport takes a few minutes, and renewals in the country take a day or so and can be done from any travel agent.
