Getting a Cambodia e-visa in India is an easy and hassle-free process.
With Akbar Travels getting the Cambodia e-Visa has never been easier, simply follow the below steps;
Cambodia e-visa is valid for 3 months and an e-visa holder is entitled to stay up to a maximum of 30 days in Cambodia. Each application can only be used once.
You can stay in Cambodia for upto 30 days with an e-visa. Since an e-visa is a single-entry visa only, you cannot re-enter again on the same e-visa after exiting Cambodia.
Upon approval the e-visa will be delivered to your email within 3 business days.
Your Cambodia e-visa will be sent via email once your application is approved. Print a copy of the approved e-visa and make sure the printed copy is clear and legible. Kindly be reminded that your Cambodia e-visa printout is crucial and must be presented upon your arrival at the Cambodian entry checkpoints.
The Cambodia e-visa can only be used once when entering Cambodia and it is necessary to process another application on your subsequent visit. It is advisable to read the provisions that are contained in the e-visa PDF file.
If your Cambodia e-visa gets refused, you cannot travel to Cambodia. You can re-apply for an e-visa any time as you like. However please keep in mind that each application costs as much as the first application.
We recommend applying your e-visa not more than one month and not less than five days prior to your travel date.

Cambodia's vibrant culture, fascinating history and beautiful islands make it an ideal place to travel. One of the most authentic and unspoiled destinations in Southeast Asia, Cambodia attracts adventurous travellers with remarkable ancient temples, unique cultural experiences, and picturesque rural landscapes. Even the historical horrors of the Khmer Rouge draw tourists, with attractions like the notorious Killing Fields serving as harrowing reminders of Cambodia's most turbulent and tragic chapter. Read moreNestled along the tropical waters of the Gulf of Thailand, sharing boarders with Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand, Cambodia has a lot to offer intrepid visitors. Travelling by tuk-tuk along the chaotic streets of French-flavoured Phnom Penh is a must. Cambodia also promises idyllic beaches, usually less crowded than those of its neighbouring countries. However, by far the most popular attraction in the country is the ancient temple complex of Angkor, a magnificent 'Lost City' which is undoubtedly one of the most magical tourist attractions in the world and a bucket-list destination for many. Although Cambodia is still most popular with backpackers and budget travellers, luxury accommodation and amenities are on the rise, catering to the increasingly diverse crowds wanting to explore this beautiful country.
So, if you’re in search of a destination that fuses adventure, adrenaline, history, culture and tropical relaxation in one, this might just be the perfect spot.
The home of the famous Angkor Wat is unquestionably one of Cambodia’s must-see places. Unfortunately, thanks to the legendary pagodas and vine-dressed stupas that are tagged by UNESCO, it’s also one of the busiest spots in the country. Still, it’s definitely worth braving the crowds and hopping out of Siem Reap for a spell to see this world wonder. Encompassed by wetland rice paddies and dense jungles, it emerges from the canopy in a medley of historic Khmer towers and enchanting erstwhile Hindu shrines. Today, it’s the chants of Buddhist monks and gasping travelers that dominate, as they weave between the intricate base reliefs and the great sandstone sculptures of mythic beasts.
Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s answer to the backpacker beach towns of Thailand just across the gulf.
A ramshackle place of tin-roofed hostels and bamboo beer bars spilling onto the sands, it oozes a laid-back vibe that’s a welcome break from the country’s other urban centers.
The beaches are the place to be both day and night, with the establishments of Ochheuteal offering loungers and water sports aplenty.
For something a little quieter, you could also make a beeline around the headlands to less-trodden Otres Beach or pay the entry fee for secluded Sokha Beach nearby.
Phnom Penh is a city in flux: a place where barrios of haphazard shack homes mingle with gilded temples of gold leaf and straight-laced highways of the 21st century.
That means it’s also a fine spot to get to grips with the nature of Cambodia as a whole; a country neatly balanced between the old and the new. The piece de resistance is surely the opulent Royal Palace complex, which shimmers with the spires of the Silver Pagoda at its center.
For a taste of local life, be sure to hit the buzzing Sisowath Quay, which runs along the Mekong in a medley of markets and picnic spots. And – of course – there are the so-called Killing Fields just on the edge of town: sobering and stark reminders of the horrors of Cambodia’s 20th-century past.
Defined by the meanders of the Mekong River as it gushes towards the delta and the South China Sea in the south-east, this laid-back spot is slowly but surely raising it to become one of Cambodia’s bona fide backpacker hubs. It’s easy to see why the shoestring travelers love it too – think cheap timber longhouses and earthy guesthouses, really old ruins at Sambor and traditional craft markets on the water. But that’s not all, because Kratie has also become famed as one of the top places to see the Cambodian river dolphin. Excursions to stalk these majestic mammals in the Mekong leave from the docks every day.
It’s true that most people flock to Siem Reap to hop across to the UNESCO wonder of Ankgor Wat. However, thanks largely to the influx of folk coming in recent decades, this one has developed into a fine place to visit in its own right. You can delve into an old town of elegant French mansions and enchanting Chinese shops, all of which are punctuated by the heady fray of Psah Chas market (perfect for sizzling noodle soups!) and countless backpacker bars (look for appropriately-named Pub Street). There are also some really great museums in Siem Reap, like the sobering Cambodia Landmine Museum and the (equally sobering) War Museum Cambodia.
Koh Ker is the smaller, lesser-known brother of Angkor Wat. Located deep in the jungles of northern Cambodia, the spot reigned as the capital of the mighty Khmer Empire for a measly 20 years. However, those two decades of glory still show, with elaborate stupas protruding from the canopies and the 1,000-year-old rises of the stepped Prasat Thom temples soaring more than 30 meters above the ground. You’ll also be able to see an elaborate array of fortifications dating from the 10th century, and crumbling ruins of shrines now almost entirely claimed by the roots of giant teak trees. In short: this one’s a fine alternative to bustling Angkor.
This eight-shaped island that sits out where the waters of the Thai Gulf meet the South China Sea is a picture of tropical perfection. It boasts a whopping 23 individual stretches of sand, all of which are far quieter and untouched than their compadres across the straits in Sihanoukville. Rustic, salt-sprayed bungalows line the coast sporadically, and there are plenty of opportunities for trekking through the forests, or hitting the coral-coloured sea for a bout of snorkelling. Koh Rong is also famed for its bioluminescent waters, which glimmer under the dark skies at night – you’ll spot them if you aren’t too busy guzzling beers in nearby Koh Tuch Village!
The provincial capital of Ratanakiri is hardly on the tourist radar at all – at least for the moment, that is. Slowly but surely, more and more adventure seekers and outdoorsy types are waxing down the walking boots and heading to this remote corner of the country, where macaques meet slinking snakes between the jungle canopies.
The town itself might be a dusty, hectic affair, but there are plenty of tour organizers there who can put together trips out to the beautiful Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, the colossal cataract of Cha Ong, or the sweeping rubber plantations that surround the province.
Kampot might seem tantalizingly close to the coast for it not to be about beaches, but this river town on the delta waters of the Praek Tuek Chhu offers something totally different than just sand, sea and sun. Start with a trip to the pepper farms that blanket the local flatlands – they are not only the primary economic driver here, but also responsible for the unique peppercorns of Kampot.
The town is also home to a series of earthy fishing villages, where seafood fries come doused in chili and lemongrass. And then there’s the array of dilapidating colonial builds in the center, along with the rusting shells of old locomotives in the Kampot railway station.
Asian elephants stalk the fields and bush lands of far-flung Mondulkiri Province; water buffalo and timber longhouses ring the wetlands, as peaks of forest-clad rock rise to meet the border with Vietnam. This eastern jewel is a far cry from the sun-scorched lands and steamy tropical climes that dominate the rest of the country and is slowly becoming famed for its second-to-none elephant conservation project. Cultural encounters with the earthy Bunong tribes people are also possible, and ecotourism of that sort is now the main driver here.
Statue-dotted Battambang is perhaps something of an unusual favourite on the backpacking circuit around Cambodia. Why? Well, there’s not really all that much to see in the town itself, and the temples hardly live up to the majesty of Siem Reap. Still, folk continue to flock to this second city, and we’re hardly complaining.
Lively traveler bars line the streets and there are some great hotels to choose from, all of which hide between the occasional Buddhist temple and the throbbing Central Market.
Around Battambang is where you’ll find the Wat Baydamram (filled with fruit bats) and the eerie Wat Samraong Knong, which was once used as a Khmer Rouge prison!
Rabbit Island (as it’s known in English) is one of the jewels of Kep Province, set just out in the waters of the Thai Gulf from the southern coast of the country.
Fringed with softly sloping yellow sands and rows of swaying coconut palms, it’s got all the tropical beauties you’d expect from a tropical island. However, Koh Thonsay also comes with far fewer crowds than its compadres across the waters in the Land of Smiles, and the prices are cheaper too! The best thing to do is strap on the walking boots and hike the coastal trails.
Sooner or later you’ll discover a secluded cove of shimmering shore waters, totally empty save for the occasional bobbing fishing skiff.Show less

We currently only process Tourist and Business Visas. Kindly contact the Embassy for the other Cambodia Visa applications.
Cambodia offers several visa types to visitors of the country, from which the tourist and business visa are the most common ones.
The tourist visa (T class) is best for those who know they will be staying 30 days or less. The 30-day tourist visa is available to travellers in advance in the form of an e-Visa or on arrival (for most nationalities). The tourist visa is single entry only. After that, tourist visa holders must leave Cambodia and come back to obtain a new visa.
If you are considering staying in Cambodia for an extended period of time, you will need to apply
for a 30-day E-class visa (not an online e-visa). This is also valid for 30 days. The difference
between the ordinary visa and the tourist visa is that the ordinary one can be extended indefinitely.
After 30 days, when you go to extend your visa, you can choose an EB, EG, ER, or ES visa extension.
Previously, there used to be only one E-class visa extension, known as the “business” or “ordinary” visa. In 2017 a new set of E-class extension of stay types became available. (These are in no way related to the electronic visa, also confusingly known as the e-visa).
EB Visa:The EB business visa extension covers most Cambodia expats, including those who are working and their partners and children, freelancers, and volunteers. The current rules (as of March 2018) require applications to provide a stamped letter verifying their employment with a Cambodian company). Spouses and children of EB visa holders can submit the visa-holder’s employment letter plus proof of their relationship to the visa holder to renew their own visa extensions. This renewable visa extension can last for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months, although only the 6- and 12-month visa extension allow multiple entries.
Be aware that the EB visa extension does not confer the right to work in Cambodia. In order to be legally employed, you will need a Cambodian work permit. Once you have the EB visa extension, at any point in the future the immigration police may ask to see your business license, work contract, and work permit, or a letter confirming the purpose of your stay.
EG visa: The EG visa extension is intended for those searching for employment, and can last 1, 3, or 6 months. Those who have had previous EB visa extensions may or may not be granted an EG visa, as they are not intended for those who have already been in the country long term. The EG visa extension is not renewable, but as always, your mileage may vary.
ER visa: The new retirement visa extension is meant for those of retirement age who can show documentation of retirement in their home country (such as a pension or Social Security) and prove that they have the funds to support themselves. Often, proof of savings is enough. ER visa extensions are usually only granted to those who are 55 and up, but some have reported being able to get one at a younger age. The ER visa extension cannot be used if the visa holder is employed, but holders of this visa extension do not need to get a work permit. The ER retirement visa extension can be issued for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months.
ES visa: The ES visa extension is a student visa. Applicants for the ES visa extension need to provide a letter from a registered Cambodian school, as well as evidence of sufficient funds to support themselves. The ES student visa extension can be issued for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months.
Once you have your first 30-day E-class visa for Cambodia, you can apply for one of the extension of stay visas listed above from inside the country for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. It’s advisable to extend it for 6 or 12 months, as these visa types are multiple-entry. The 1- and 3-month visas are single-entry only, meaning that if you leave for a weekend trip to Vietnam, you’ll need to get a new Cambodian visa when you return.
3. K-class visa. The K-class visa is for those of Cambodian descent who hold a foreign passport. It is a free lifetime visa, although you will almost certainly be asked to pay an unofficial “facilitation fee” to get it. Bring any documents that show that you have one Khmer parent, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, family book, or Cambodian ID card. A Khmer last name and ability to speak Khmer may be enough—along with a $20 bill, of course.
Cambodian visas for children. Since late 2016, all non-Cambodian children have been required to have an E-class visa to enter the Kingdom. The prices are the same as for adults. If the child has at least one Cambodian parent, they can apply for a free K-class visa. Children can apply for a ES visa extension without evidence of being enrolled in school up to the age of 17. After that they will need to get an EB extension or show evidence of school enrolment.
4. B-class visa. The B-class visa, known as the “NGO visa,” is a free visa for employees of international NGOs that have a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The INGO will need to apply in advance for your visa and have a representative meet you at the airport on arrival. If you are already in Cambodia on another visa type, you will need to leave the country and re-enter to get your B-class visa. The first visa is good for three months and subsequently can be renewed for up to a year (based on the length of your contract) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Spouses and children of NGO visa holders are eligible for a C-class visa. Ask your employer if you are eligible, because not all NGOs qualify. If you are caught using a visa for a purpose not allowed under that particular visa type, you will be fined $100 and required to leave the country within 7 days (so don’t get a retirement visa if you are working).
The K-type visa can only be given to Cambodian descendants that enter Cambodia with a foreign passport. They need to have valid documents to show that their parents are Cambodian citizens. The K-visa will be issued one time and free of charge. The visa will allow the applicants to enter the Cambodian kingdom an unlimited number of times.
Diplomatic, Official and Courtesy visas are provided for free, but you will have to meet very specific requirements for these visa types.
