You must meet the Cambodia visa requirements to enter the country for your holiday. Check if you meet all of the requirements before applying for your Cambodia visa.
Requirements for your passport
The Cambodia visa can only be applied for through this website for travellers that hold a passport stating they have the British nationality (British citizen), or the nationality of one of these countries.
Furthermore, the passport must meet the requirements set for usage of the Cambodia visa. These requirements state that your passport must be valid for at least six more months from the moment of arrival in Cambodia. You need to travel with the same passport that you used when applying for the visa. A check will be made on arrival which will, among other things, focus on your passport number; it needs to match the number that you filled in while applying for the Cambodia visa.
What if your passport expires earlier?
Does your passport expire within six months after your date of arrival? Then you do not meet the Cambodia visa requirements. In this case, you will first need to apply for a new passport. An emergency passport does not meet the requirements, but if you are in a rush, you can make use of the urgency procedure which most passport offices offer. You can only submit your visa application once you have received your new passport. That is because you need to fill in the passport number on it in the application form for the Cambodia visa.

Requirements for travelling with children
Children travelling along each need to possess their own passport and visa. It is recommended submitting a group application. You can use the same online application form (explanation) for this as for a single traveller, and press the button "add traveller" at the bottom of the form. This has the benefit that you do not need to fill in a lot of the information multiple times.
Are you travelling with underage children and both parents aren’t coming along? Then you also need to have a signed statement in English in which both parents or parental representatives grant permission to make the trip.
Requirements for your itinerary
The itinerary of your holiday to Cambodia also needs to meet a number of requirements.
- The total stay cannot last longer than 30 days
- You need to make your entire trip within the validity term of the Cambodia visa
- You need to arrive at one of the assigned entry locations (see below)
- You don’t need to have booked a flight ticket yet to apply for the visa
- You must indicate the address of your first accommodation in Cambodia while completing the application form. You may deviate from this later on

Take the visa with you on your trip
