For those who are planning to be staying here for a period of 30 days or less, the tourist visa (T class) should be the best choice.

For a cost of $30, the 30-day tourist visa is available to travelers on arrival (for most nationalities) or in advance. Being single entry only, the tourist visa can also be renewed once for a fee of $45 for an additional 30 days. After that, it is a must for holders of tourist visa leave Cambodia and come back to obtain a brand new visa. Do not bother with a tourist visa and start with an ordinary visa instead if you are planning on staying.

The ordinary visa (E class) is the best choice for anyone who is considering staying for an extended period of time. Although used to be called the business visa, this visa, which is now called the ordinary or normal visa, costs $35 and is also valid for a period of 30 days. The ordinary one can be extended indefinitely is the difference between the tourist visa and the ordinary visa. Be aware that the ordinary visa does not confer the right to work in Cambodia although it is often called a business visa. You do not need a work permit to get a visa, you will need a Cambodia work permit in order to be legally employed.

It is possible to extend your visa from inside the country for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months once you get your first 30-day ordinary visa for Cambodia. As these visa types are multiple-entry, it is advisable to extend it for 6 or 12 months. You will need to get a new Cambodian visa when you return if you leave for a weekend trip to Vietnam as the 1- and 3-month ordinary visas are single-entry only. Tours in Cambodia
