Preparing For A Trip To Cambodia?


Visa Information / Entry requirements – Cambodia


This page reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British Citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Cambodia set and enforce entry rules. If you’re unsure how Cambodia’s entry requirements apply to you, contact its UK embassy, high commission or consulate

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.

You no longer need to show a pre-arrival COVID-19 test, full COVID-19 vaccination card or certificate, or a passenger’s health declaration on arrival in Cambodia. This applies at all land, sea or air entry points.

Remote temperature checkers will still be in use at entry and exit gates.

If you’re fully vaccinated

Entry requirements for Cambodia are the same for all travellers, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

Entry requirements for Cambodia are the same for all travellers, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

Children and young people

There are no specific requirements for children and young people.

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.

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.


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 Cambodian Department of Immigration has launched an online registration system for foreigners living in, or visiting Cambodia. The Foreigners Present in Cambodia System (FPCS) will be used to record arrival and exit data. Its main objective is to protect foreigner safety and security in case of an emergency during their stay in Cambodia.

All foreign visitors or residents, living or travelling in Cambodia, regardless of length of stay or purpose of visit, should register on the FPCS app. It is recommended to register on the FPCS prior to arrival. Foreign visitors or residents who fail to register on the FCPS app may be unable to extend their visa should they subsequently need to.

If you are renting accommodation in Cambodia, your landlord is responsible for registering you on the FCPS app. You should provide them with the information required, but you should check with your landlord 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 or own your own home in Cambodia, you will need to register yourself.

You can download the app for Android or iOS. Once downloaded, there are 6 steps to enable registration:

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

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.

UK Emergency Travel Documents

UK Emergency Travel Documents (ETDs) are accepted for entry, airside transit and exit from Cambodia. If you’re leaving the country using an ETD issued in Cambodia (and therefore containing no entry stamp), you’ll need to get an exit visa from the Cambodian authorities once you have your ETD. Exit visas cost $30 and must be obtained from the Cambodian Immigration Department in Phnom Penh, 332, Russian Boulevard, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The exit visa will take up to 3 working days to be processed by the Cambodian authorities.

Tourism Health Information – Cambodia


If you have a health condition, or you are pregnant, you may need specialist healthcare abroad. Check whether your destination country can provide the healthcare you may need and ensure you have appropriate travel insurance for unexpected medical evacuation or local treatment.

See the Coronavirus travel health and Healthcare sections in the Coronavirus page for COVID-19 health information.

At least 8 weeks before your trip, check the latest country-specific health advice from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) on the TravelHealthPro website. Each country-specific page has information on vaccine recommendations, any current health risks or outbreaks, and factsheets with information on staying healthy abroad. Guidance is also available from NHS (Scotland) on the FitForTravel website.

General information on travel vaccinations and a travel health checklist is available on the NHS website. You may then wish to contact your health adviser or pharmacy for advice on other preventive measures and managing any pre-existing medical conditions while you’re abroad.

The legal status and regulation of some medicines prescribed or bought in the UK can be different in other countries. If you’re travelling with prescription or over-the-counter medicine, read this guidance from NaTHNaC on best practice when travelling with medicines. For further information on the legal status of a specific medicine, you’ll need to contact the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country or territory you’re travelling to.

While travel can be enjoyable, it can sometimes be challenging. There are clear links between mental and physical health, so looking after yourself during travel and when abroad is important. Information on travelling with mental health conditions is available in our guidance page. Further information is also available from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).

Medical treatment

If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 119 and ask for an ambulance. You should contact your insurance/medical assistance company promptly if you’re referred to a medical facility for treatment. You should also see our list of medical and dental services.

Public health facilities in Cambodia are very poor. Private clinics and hospitals in Phnom Penh are often better equipped, but are of variable quality and can be expensive. Many treatments and procedures are not available in Cambodia. Many people travel to neighbouring countries for medical treatment. The standards maintained by Cambodian emergency services are extremely poor in comparison to the UK and evacuation may be necessary for medical emergencies and anything other than minor medical concerns. Make sure you have adequate travel health insurance and that you also have accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad and repatriation as some hospitals will expect payment by you at the time of treatment.

There are no proper mental health care facilities in Cambodia. Professional treatment including medication is difficult and expensive to obtain. Emergency mental health treatment is likely to need an air ambulance transfer to a country offering appropriate facilities.

Local pharmacies provide a limited supply of medications. Many sell counterfeit or out of date products. Make sure you bring adequate supplies for the duration of your stay.

Health risks

UK health authorities have classified Cambodia as having a risk of Zika virus transmission. For information and advice about the risks associated with Zika virus, visit the National Travel Health Network and Centre website.

There is a risk of other mosquito-borne diseases, such as chikungunya and dengue fever. If you’re in Cambodia, you should take steps to avoid mosquito bites.

Severe cases of dengue are rare in travellers but you should avoid mosquito bites particularly between dawn and dusk. The mosquitoes that transmit dengue are most abundant in towns, cities and surrounding areas.

There is currently no medication or vaccination available for travellers to prevent dengue but if you experience symptoms you should seek medical advice immediately. For further information visit the National Travel Health Network and Centre website.

Weather & When To Go To Cambodia


What is the weather like in Cambodia?

We will advise you on the best time of the year to travel and, just as importantly, when not to go to a particular region or place. We hope the following guidelines are useful:

The climate in Cambodia can, roughly at least, be divided into two different seasons: the monsoon (rainy) season (June to October) and the dry season (November to May).

Actually there are four different periods throughout the year:

November – February: Cool and dry

March – May: Hot and dry

June – August: Hot and wet

September – October: Cool and wet

Maximum daily temperatures range from the high 20°C in January to more than 40°C in April. Daily minimum temperatures are usually no less than 15° C.
