E-visas for tourists

Foreigners who want to visit Cambodia can now apply for visas on the Internet and

do not have to visit Cambodian embassies, according to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs

declaration earlier this month.

The electronic visa or e-visa system allows foreign tourists to fill in necessary

forms online to get a one-month visa, valid for three months from issuance date.

Applicants are required to attach scanned copies of their passports and use their

credit cards to make the online payment of $25 - $5 more than usual.

Tourists can use the internet-based visa if they arrive and leave Cambodia through

Phnom Penh or Siem Reap airports.

In 2005, Cambodia made US$1 billion from tourism; 15 percent went to the state and

the rest to the private sector.
