See More Details

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Cambodia introduced the Cambodian eVisa in 2006. It is an online visa that grants entry to foreign travelers, including Australians, for temporary visits.

Australian passport holders can apply for the Cambodian electronic visa from the comfort of their home within 20 to 30 minutes without needing to visit an embassy or consular office. The process is highly convenient, quick, and efficient.

Requirements for Australian Visitors to Obtain the Cambodian eVisa

It is best to consult the visa conditions for Australian passport holders before accessing the eVisa application form. These publish the countries Australian nationals can travel to and what documentation they need.

The requirements to obtain the Cambodian eVisa include the following:

  • Have an Australian passport valid for 180 days on their intended arrival and at least one blank page for entry and exit stamps.
  • Register their eVisa request with a frequently accessed email address
  • Provide a debit or credit card to pay the eVisa processing fee
  • Share a recently taken personal photo in color and passport-style

Australian citizens with a passport that does not meet the requirements must send it for renewal with their local authorities at their earliest available date.

The eVisa is an electronic visa issued to the passport that was used during the application process. It cannot be shared with a second travel document.

This is especially important for Australian travelers with dual citizenship. If they reach Cambodia with a different passport, they will not be authorized to enter.

Application for the Cambodia eVisa by Australians

Australian passport holders can apply for the Cambodia eVisa by completing an online form. They will be required to share their personal details such as the following:

  • Name
  • Surname
  • Nationality
  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Contact phone number

They will continue their petition by answering several questions regarding their passport information. some of these include the following:

  • Passport number
  • Passport issuing country
  • Passport issue and expiry date

Travelers from Australia need to carefully review the information they are providing. Any errors or mismatches with their passport could lead to a possible denial of their eVisa request.

Applicants from Australia conclude the eVisa request by paying the processing fee. The payment is issued by a secure digital platform. Most international bank cards are accepted, and Australians must simply check they have been pre-approved for online transactions.

Australian children traveling to Cambodia with an eVisa

Australian families planning a holiday with minors must note each arrival must reach Cambodia with their individual eVisa approval.

This is regardless of their age or if their details are included in one of their parents’ or guardians’ passports.

The children’s parents or legal guardians can complete the Cambodia eVisa application forms on behalf of their Australian underage children.

Evaluation of the Cambodian eVisa requests by Australian Citizens

Cambodia analyzes all application forms received by Australian nationals. If these have been correctly submitted, they will receive a resolution to their petition within 4 business days.

To account for possible delays during busy touristic periods, Australians should apply at least a week before the intended arrival date.

Successful applicants from Australia will receive an approval email in their inbox. Upon receipt, we suggest printing out a hard copy and store it next to their travel documents. The eVisa will be automatically linked to their passport.

Cambodia eVisa for Australian Citizens: How Does it Work

The Cambodian visa policy defines the main features the electronic visa offers to foreign travelers. Australian nationals are eligible to use the eVisa if their plans for Cambodia meet the following conditions:

  • They only need to enter Cambodia once during their visit
  • They will only engage in tourist activities
  • Their stay will not exceed a month (30 days)

Australians should consider the eVisa does not authorize entry for over 30 days or activities not related to tourism. If they plan to travel to Cambodia for other purposes, they should organize an appointment with the Cambodian Embassy in Canberra for further details.

Traveling from Australia to Cambodia with the eVisa

Visitors from Australia have 90 days to use the eVisa for their entry into Cambodia. Failure to do so within this period will render their granted eVisa invalid, and they will need to apply for a new electronic visa.

Australian tourists can reach Cambodia by one of the following international airports compatible with the eVisa:

  • Phnom Penh International Airport
  • Siem Reap International Airport
  • Sihanoukville International Airport

Travelers from Australia entering Cambodia by road can choose one of the following border crossings where they can also use the eVisa:

  • Cham Yeam (Koh Kong Province)
  • Poi Pet (Banteay Meanchey Province)
  • Bavet (Svay Rieng Province)
  • Tropang Kreal Border Post (Stung Treng)

Upon reaching any of these border crossings, Australians can head straight to the queues for arrivals with an eVisa to save time at passport controls. They will be required to submit their approval letter and passport for entry stamps.

Australian nationals must abide by the authorized number of days granted on the eVisa (30). If they encounter any unexpected issues and need to prolong their stay, they can request an eVisa extension at the National Police Immigration Department office.
