Cambodia

Visa requirements for Canadians

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports can purchase a visa upon arrival (VOA) in the country at the first airport or land border crossing point. There is no application process.

Visa requirements for Foreigners

As the embassy or high commission of this country accredited to Canada is physically located inside the USA, you must apply for this visa at the embassy or high commission or consulate located in the USA. These are usually in Washington DC (embassies and high commissions), or in New York City (consulates)

 

VISA-ON-ARRIVAL: Canadians visiting Cambodia can buy a Cambodian visa on arrival at either of Cambodia’s two international airports (Phnom Penh & Siem Reap); or at the Poi Pet crossing from Thailand; or the Bavet & Moc Bai crossing from Sai Gon, Viet Nam, upon arrival for US$35 (business US$40.). This is the usual option for Canadians flying into Cambodia, or arriving by road from either Thailand or Viet Nam.

eVISA: Canadians who do not want to wait until arrival for a visa should apply for the Cambodian eVisa.   E-Visas cannot be used to enter Cambodia by boat on the Mekong River, or by ship at the Port of Sihanoukville.  https://www.evisa.gov.kh

MEKONG RIVER CRUISE WARNING: if you are entering Cambodia by boat on the Mekong River you must have a regular Cambodian visa issued directly into your passport prior to travel. The E-VISA cannot be used to enter Cambodia by river boat (such as a cruise up the Mekong River).
Canadians sailing up the Mekong from Viet Nam into Cambodia must have a visa glued into their passports prior to travel to Cambodia.
Canadians sailing down the Mekong River from Cambodia to Viet Nam who flew into Cambodia from abroad can either get a paper visa prior to travel from Canada; or can get a paper visa upon arrival at either of Cambodia’s two international airports (Phnom Penh & Siem Reap); or can get a Cambodian e-visa prior to travel.
Please check with your river boat cruise line to see if they will handle visas at the border if sailing into Cambodia. It is technically illegal, but some riverboat companies have 'arrangements' with local officials.
You must have the visa in your passport prior to trying to enter Cambodia by boat or ship. Canadians must apply to the Cambodia Embassy in Washington DC USA for the visa. Ensure you have a multi-entry visa for Viet Nam if you will be in Viet Nam more than once (such as before and after the Cambodia cruise).
