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
First of all, you need to meet the requirements which are set for usage of the Cambodia visa. These requirements dictate that your passport needs to be valid for at least six more months from the moment you arrive in Cambodia. You need to travel with the same passport which 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 which 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 don’t meet the Cambodia visa requirements. You will then 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 number on it in the application form for the Cambodia visa.

Requirements for traveling with children
Children traveling along each need to possess their own passport and visa. It is recommended to submit a group application. You can use the same online application form (explanation) for this as for a single traveler, you can press the button ‘add traveler’ at the bottom of the form. This has the benefit that you don’t need to fill in a lot of the information over and over.
Are you traveling 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 of parental representatives grant permission to make the trip.
