Cambodia: Entry Requirements & Customs

Entry Requirements

All visitors are required to carry a passport and visa. Applying online ( for a 1-month e-visa costs $25 (ţ13). The procedure is simple, straightforward, and will save you time and energy at the airport/border crossing. Visas can also be issued on arrival at the Phnom Penh or Siem Reap airports for $20 (ţ10), and an overland visa-upon-arrival is available from both Thailand (overland from Poipet) and Vietnam (by boat from Chau Doc or by bus through Moc Bai) for $22 (ţ11). Bring one 4x6 passport photo for your application. For other entry points, you must obtain your visa before arrival. An overland crossing goes to Laos via Stung Treng, but it's a trip reserved for the hearty.

Tourist visas can be extended three times for a total of 3 months. Any travel agent can perform the service for a small fee. Business visas, for just $25 (ţ13) upon entry, can be extended indefinitely.

Customs Regulations

For visitors 18 years or older, allowable amounts of goods when entering are as follows: 200 cigarettes or the equivalent quantity of tobacco, one opened bottle of liquor, and a reasonable amount of perfume for personal use. Currency in possession must be declared on arrival. Cambodian Customs on the whole is not stringent. With a long, sad history of theft from the Angkor temples, it is forbidden to carry antiques or Buddhist reliquary out of the country, but Buddhist statues and trinkets bought from souvenir stalls are fine.
