Important: Cambodia Visa and Arrival Instructions

Dearest intrepid Mekong travelers —

We are so excited to meet all of you! You will soon be getting on a flight towards Southeast Asia, and we wanted to pass along a few details about your arrival in Cambodia.

In Cambodia, you will need to obtain a Visa on Arrival.

In order to apply for this visa, you will need:

  • 30 USD
  • Two passport photos
  • Cambodia Arrival Details

Be sure to have these materials with you; you’ll need them as soon as you disembark in Phnom Penh.

When you fill out the application form, please be sure to apply for the 30-day Tourist visa. If asked for your “purpose for travel,” please check off tourism / holiday, not study. When asked for your address in country, you should list the hotel we will stay at in Phnom Penh:

Starwood Hotel, #74 St, Sangkat Viel Vong Khan 7 Makara, Phnom Penh 855

If you’d like, you can print out this email and have it for your reference on the flight, as you are filling out the visa on arrival application.

After everyone in the group has obtained their visas, please proceed to baggage claim, pick up all of your bags, and exit the airport – we’ll be waiting for you outside!

If any final questions come up, feel free to make a quick post to the Yak Board, and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks to all who have posted an introduction, and if you haven’t yet, please try to get one up ASAP!


Leow phop gan (or, see you soon!),
