You'll need a visa to visit Cambodia. Tourist visas are valid for thirty days.  If you're travelling to Cambodia for tourism, you can apply for an electronic tourist visa (e-visa) online through the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. E-visas are only valid for entry through the Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville International Airports, and Cham Yeam (Koh Kong), Poipet (Banteay Meanchey), Bavet (Svay Rieng) and Tropaeng Krael (Stung Treang).

Tourist visas are also available on arrival at air and land entry points that are open to foreigners, including those where e-visas are accepted.  

For longer stays, or if you're travelling to Cambodia for a purpose other than tourism, you'll need to arrange a visa in advance through the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Cambodia.

Day trips (arriving and departing on the same day) aren't permitted, except when arriving and departing via Phnom Penh International Airport.

Land border crossings: If you plan to enter or exit Cambodia via a land border crossing, confirm before you travel that it's open to foreigners and, if required, that visas on arrival are available. Entry and exit conditions change regularly. Be especially alert to the local security situation in border regions and land crossings between countries.

Visas for Vietnam aren't available at the border.

Ensure you have a valid visa for the entire duration of your stay in Cambodia. Overstaying your visa is a serious offence. You may not be allowed to leave Cambodia until you pay a fine or serve a prison sentence. Fines increase daily. If you overstay your visa less than a month, you may need to pay the fine at the airport on departure. If you overstay your visa more than one month, you risk severe penalties, including imprisonment, deportation and/or banned from returning to Cambodia.

Check your visa dates carefully.  If your visa is issued outside of Cambodia, the expiry date on your visa is not how long you can stay, but the final date you can use the visa to enter Cambodia. You can only stay for 30 days from the date of your arrival. 

If you want to stay in Cambodia for more than 30 days, you'll need to renew your visa. Tourist visas can only be renewed once. Visas can be renewed at travel agents, hostels, guesthouses and vehicle rental companies. You can also attend the Department of Immigration office located opposite the Phnom Penh International Airport.
