Requirements of the Cambodia visa

The Cambodia visa has a validity term of 90 days. This starts right after the consular employee has approved your online application. You need to complete the full visit within these 90 days. Are you leaving in more than 30 days? Then your application won’t be processed right away, but will be put on hold until the 30th day before arrival. This way, you can submit your application at an early stage.

You cannot arrive at all border crossing and airports. Only the larger immigration posts will accept you. Read more about that on the page with the Cambodia visa requirements. Exiting the country can be done at all border posts.
