How to get Cambodia Visa in Singapore

Cambodia visa requirements are one of the main things to check before planning a tour to any part of Cambodia. In this post I want to share how to get Cambodia visa in Singapore as this will help you to get your visa before you reach Cambodia.

With the launch of e-Visa facility, you can easily apply Cambodia tourist visa online by visiting the www.evisa.gov.kh.However,Sri Lanka passport holders are not eligible for Cambodia e-Visa facility. Although Sri Lankans are eligible for Visa on Arrival, we decided to apply Cambodia visa from the embassy in Singapore.

Here is our experience which can be helpful for you too.

Things you need to apply Cambodia visa in Singapore

To apply for tourist visa, you need the below details and documents.

-Completed visa application form

-1 recent passport size photo

-Passport original

-Visa processing fee

Notes:

The Cambodia visa application needs some basic personal details which you can easily fill at the counter. We collected visa application form for Cambodia at the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Singapore. If you visit the embassy with passport, photograph and other required things such as visa fee, it is easy to fill and submit at the same time.

Cambodia Visa fee

For tourist visa – SGD 48

For Business Visa – SGD 53

(As of January 2017, fee may vary with time)

It will take 3 working days to process Cambodia visa. However, if you are in rush you can apply for express visa which will enable you to get visa on the same day. That will cost extra SGD 20 per application.

Cambodia Visa application Submission

Below are some important things when you submit your Cambodia visa application for processing.

Visa application submission – From 9am -12 pm

Visa processing fee should be paid in Singapore Dollars and they only accept cash.

Cambodia Visa Collection

I found a notice saying visa collection is from 2pm – 4.30pm.However, in our receipt they have mentioned morning 10am-12pm too.

Location of Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Singapore

400 Orchard Road, # 10-03/04 Orchard Towers, 238875

Note: If you use Public transport, use exit E from the Orchard MRT to enter into Paterson road and then to the Orchard road.

Planning a trip to Cambodia

We are planning our next holiday to Cambodia. Isn’t this interesting? I am really excited. As a beautiful destination in Southeast Asia,  Cambodia is full of historical attractions and rich with cultural activities. So, I am sure our holiday will be really full of excitement!

Planning a trip to Cambodia is not that difficult. However, it is always good to check the important things before you book your flights and hotels in order to enjoy a safe and interesting holiday.

Here are our concerns and tour plans so far.

(Update:We travelled to Phnom Penh,Cambodia.Check our Phnom Penh itinerary)

Check the Cambodia Visa Requirements

Visa requirements are different from country to country. So, this is our first concern when it comes to plan any holiday. Anyway as Sri Lankans we are eligible for Visa on Arrival facility to enter in to Cambodia. Applying for Cambodia visa is really easy as they provide eVisa facility. In 3 easy steps you can apply visa if required.However,it is sad that Sri Lankan passport holders are not eligible for eVisa facility,so we need to apply visa on arrival.

But,instead of using visa on arrival facility to enter into Cambodia,we decided to apply Cambodia visa from the Cambodia embassy in Singapore.This will sure save our time which we have to spend in the immigration once we are in Cambodia.

Decide the attractions or places to visit

We plan a few days tour. So, we can’t visit many popular attractions in Cambodia such as Phnom Penh,Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. If you spend few weeks holiday in Cambodia, you can plan your itinerary covering most of the parts of Cambodia. However, we decided to visit Phnom Penh this time. Also Phnom Penh is with many popular historical attractions which any tourist must see.

Check the Flights

Once we decide our destination in Cambodia, we checked for flights. The days we are planning our holiday is during the Chinese New Year holidays. So, it is peak period which most of people in Singapore travel for holidays. Therefore, it is unavoidable. Flight rates are higher. But, still we managed to find the best flight rates by changing our flying dates slightly. It is not the lowest comparatively normal days. However, for a popular holiday weekend, we could find the best flight rates while combining flights.

Book the hotels

We always like to find hotels near the popular attractions. So we started searching for hotels in Phnom Penh near the historical city. Though we still check for hotels near historical city of Phnom Penh, we found many beautiful hotels around the area with facilities.

Getting here and there

Next important thing to plan before we reach Cambodia is transportation. Possible we will hire taxi for airport transfer. We always love to walk while watching around when the attractions are near the accommodations. Otherwise it would be a mix of taxi hire and public transportation.

List the Attractions in Cambodia or prepare your itinerary

Well, I am planning our things to do in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This list will include the visiting historical attractions such as Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Wat Ounalom wat Langka. Other than the historical places to visit, we also love to visit markets and shopping centers while experiencing the cultural activities. As we travel with our kid, I am also looking for attractions for kids in Phnom Penh.

Money and currency rates

As for any other country, this is our next concern. As I found, it is easy to use dollars there while using Cambodian riel for some transactions.

So far these are our basic travel plans and things to check before we travel to Cambodia, Phnom Penh. I hope to update the blog with our actual experiences once we are back!

Have you been to Phnom Penh, Cambodia? If so please share your tips and suggestions. These would be really useful for us to plan our next holiday!
