What is a(n) (e-)visa for Cambodia?
If you want to go to Cambodia for a holiday or business trip, you must apply for a regular visa before entering the country. The visa is a sticker, which is issued by the Cambodia government and is affixed to the passport. With this visa you are allowed to enter the territory of Cambodia.
The visa will be checked during passport control in Cambodia. If you arrive by plane, the first visa check will probably already take place at the airport.
Our staff works professionally to ensure that your Cambodia visa application is submitted flawlessly at the Cambodia embassy, so that you can travel with peace of mind.

Regular visa (in the passport)
The regular visa will appear in your passport, which you must apply for well in advance.
The advantage of this is that you can choose a single or multiple entry. In addition, the visa has a validity of 3 months instead of. 30 days. You can also change your arrival and departure date, as long as it falls within the validity of the visa. The disadvantage is that this takes 6 working days, the costs are slightly higher and you have to deliver the necessary documents to us physically, instead of digitally.
The Cambodia e-visa is valid for 90 days after issue. Within this period you can stay in the country for a maximum of 30 days. You must present a copy of the visa to the immigration officers on both entry and exit. So you need to bring 2 prints of this.
Nationalities (outside the EU, for example) that are not allowed to travel to Cambodia on an e-visa can claim a regular visa.
