All travellers

You will need a visa to enter or travel through Cambodia as a visitor. Tourist visas can be applied for online or obtained on arrival.

If you’re fully vaccinated

If you’re fully vaccinated, you only need to present proof of vaccination to enter Cambodia.

Cambodia will accept the UK’s proof of vaccination record issued in the Crown Dependencies but this should be printed out in advance. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

Unvaccinated travellers or those who have not been fully vaccinated must quarantine for 7 days. If not pre-booking the hotel, you must demonstrate you hold US$2000 in cash per person. If you enter by air, health authorities will oversee a PCR test on day 7 of the quarantine period. If you enter by land, you will be tested before entering quarantine and again on day 7.

To conduct your hotel quarantine to can choose between a hotel arranged by the Cambodian Government or have pre-booked and paid for one of the additional private hotels. The additional hotels should be contacted directly and may charge more than the Government hotels. If you are intending to use a government arranged hotel, you will need to demonstrate you hold sufficient funds to cover the cost of your accommodation, as indicated above.

If you’ve had COVID-19 in the past year

Anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past year will still be expected to comply with the entry requirements applicable to their vaccination status.

Children and young people

Children aged 17 and under can follow the rules for fully vaccinated travellers to enter Cambodia.

Children aged 17 and under who are not vaccinated will be quarantined in accordance with the period that applies to the accompanying adult(s).

If you’re transiting through Cambodia

Transiting through Cambodia and staying in the airport (airside) is not currently permitted.

If you are transiting through Cambodia on your way to another country and will be passing through immigration (sometimes known as a layover), for example to stay in a hotel for a flight the next day, you need to meet the entry requirements applicable to your vaccination status.

Exemptions

There are no exemptions to these entry requirements.

Check your passport and travel documents before you travel

Check with your travel provider to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Cambodia. Entry is normally refused if you have a damaged passport or pages missing.

Your passport should also be valid for a minimum period of 6 months for any subsequent renewal or extension of your visa that you apply for from within Cambodia.

Visas

Visa fees, conditions and photograph requirements are subject to change. Check the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Co-operation website for the latest information on fees, conditions and photograph requirements and on how to apply for an e-visa.

Tourist visas issued by a Royal Cambodian Embassy abroad may appear to have a longer validity than 1 month. The validity of the visa refers to the time you have to enter Cambodia. The visa is valid for 30 days from the actual date of entry into Cambodia. Make sure your passport is stamped on arrival, and keep the departure form. If you lose your departure form, you’ll need to contact immigration officials before you leave the country to make alternative arrangements.

You can be fined, detained and deported if you overstay your visa. There is a fine of $10 per day for overstaying the validity of your visa. There is no limit to this fine. Those who overstay more than 30 days will need to leave Cambodia in addition to paying the fine.

If you lose your passport and need to leave Cambodia on a UK Emergency Travel Document, you will need to get an exit visa. See UK Emergency Travel Documents

Foreigner registration

The Ministry of Interior’s General Department of Immigration will DENY VISA EXTENSIONS for foreigners who are not registered on the Foreigners Present in Cambodia System (FPCS). The FPCS will be used to record and manage foreigners’ information when they arrive at any entry point and record their data when they leave Cambodia. Its main objective is to protect foreigner safety and security in case of an emergency during their stay in Cambodia. Registration applies to all foreigners present in Cambodia, including tourists and residents.

The Immigration Department has clarified that registration is the responsibility of the host (landlords/hotel owners) not of the foreign resident/tourist. Foreigners will not face any fine if they are not registered, but will not receive their visa extension until the landlord/hotelier has input the foreigners details in the system.

You should check with your host to confirm that they have registered you on the app, and if not, then to ask them to do so.

If you have no landlord/own your own home, you will need to register yourself.

The FPCS app is free to download on iOS and Android. There is a video tutorial from the General Department of Immigration on how the app works (although the video has Khmer narration, the images are with English text: FPCS Video Tutorial

The in-app tutorial is in English. There are 6 steps for registration:

  • create an account (phone number, password)
  • upload a copy of your passport
  • verify information
  • enter valid phone number and password
  • verify
  • add information about accommodation

The Royal Government of Cambodia has announced, with immediate effect, an end to the automatic extension of tourist visas and the exemption of tourist visa overstay fines for foreigners.

UK Visa Application Centre (VAC) and services

  • the UK-VFS Visa Application Centre in Cambodia is open and accepting visa application appointments
  • applications for new passports must also be processed through the VAC. New passports may take longer to be issued, due to restrictions imposed on workplaces during the pandemic
  • for consular related enquiries, you can submit your enquiry via the contact form on our website

If you lose your passport and need to leave Cambodia on a UK Emergency Travel Document, you will need to get an exit visa. See UK Emergency Travel Documents

Regional travel

All land border crossing between Cambodia and Laos, Cambodia and Thailand, and Cambodia and Vietnam are now open.

Recent changes to visa requirements for Thailand may affect travellers wishing to make regular crossings at the land border between Cambodia and Thailand. See travel advice for Thailand for further information.

For further information about regional travel, see the travel advice for the specific country.

More general information on land border crossings from Laos and Vietnam is available at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Co-operation website.

Work permits

To work in Cambodia, you’ll need a valid business visa and a valid work permit. Business visas are issued by the Immigration Department and are usually available on arrival in Phnom Penh airport, or at the Immigration Department. You may be able to apply for a Business visa in advance at your nearest Cambodian Embassy. Your employer will need to apply for your work permit from the Department of Labour and Social Affairs.

The Cambodian government is now enforcing these rules more strictly than in previous years. There is some uncertainty about whether the government will impose charges retroactively on individuals who did not have valid work permits previously. Procedures are subject to change and you should always consult the relevant Cambodian government department for the latest advice.
