How to Get a Business Visa for Cambodia

Most people who travel to Cambodia do so with the E-Visa, which is a tourist Visa. If you plan to stay longer than 30 days or do business during your stay, the business Visa is the way to go. Although the tourist Visa can be renewed every 30 days, you must make a Visa run (leaving the country and renewing your Visa upon reentry.) The business Visa is only valid for 30 days, but it is renewable in the country. This saves the traveller a lot of time and money. Unlike the tourist Visa, the business Visa cannot be applied for online and can only be obtained after arriving to the country. Here are the steps to take to get a business Visa for Cambodia.

What to bring with you.

Before departing for the trip, make sure you bring the following items: your Passport with at least one page empty and at least 6 months validity, the Visa application form, which is provided at the airport, a $25 application fee for your business Visa, one passport-sized photo and a pen for filling out the form.

Filling out the application.

Fill out your application form for the business Visa. Make sure to check the business Visa box and indicate that you're planning to stay for more than 30 days.

Submitting the application.

There is a separate line for submitting the Visa application and picking it back up. After submitting the application and paying the $25 fee they will take your passport and work on it. In the mean time, you will be asked to move to another area to wait.

Picking up your business Visa and Passport.

It should take about 20 minutes to fix the Cambodia sticker to your passport, fill in the information, and complete the rest of the paperwork before they call out your name to come and claim your Passport and Visa. Be sure to pay attention, as sometimes they won't call your name and will just raise up the Passport with the photo visible and wait for it to be claimed. After claiming them, the immigration officer will take a digital photo of you before letting you go.


Obtaining a Business Visa for Cambodia is an easy process compared to other countries. It will allow you to work in the country without hassle and the ability to renew it without making a Visa run will save you a good deal of money. Please make sure you follow these steps carefully to ensure the process goes smoothly.
