Currently, it is now much quicker to get a visa to visit Cambodia for Nepalese. Instead of standing in a long queue upon arriving in Cambodia or applying for a visa in person at the embassy or consulate, travelers from Nepal can now apply for the eVisa online, which is an electronic travel authorization suitable for most Cambodian international arrivals.
The tourist visa for Cambodia was launched to make it simpler for travelers to enter Cambodia for tourism purposes for a period of a maximum of thirty days.
Moreover, it is very easy to apply. An applicant simply needs to complete the application form online and pay a fee by debit or credit card.
Nepali travelers only require approximately ten minutes to complete the whole online application process and can do so at home or any other place from where they can access the Internet. Applicants from Nepal can then use this eVisa to enter Cambodia by air or land for the purpose of touring the country.
Do Nepalese Citizens Require a Visa for Cambodia?
Nepal is one of over 200 countries that are required to apply for a visa to visit Cambodia. With a Cambodian tourist eVisa, international tourists will be granted entry to the country for a period of 30 days (or shorter). This means that this type of Cambodian visa is only suitable for short stays.
Children must also have their own individual approved visa, irrespective of how old they are. A parent or legal guardian may complete the application for a visa on behalf of the child.
Which Documents Do Nepalis Require to Travel to Cambodia?
Nepali citizens must have only a few documents to apply for a visa. These documents and visa requirements for Nepal citizens are the following:
- An applicant must be in possession of a valid passport. It is also important that the passport will still be valid for at least six months after the planned date of arrival
- An applicant must have access to a recent digital passport-sized photograph
- An applicant must have a valid email address. As the visa will be sent to successful applicants by means of email, they must still be able to access the email address that they provide
- An applicant must have a valid debit or credit card. To finalize the online application process, an online payment must be made using a debit or credit card
How to Apply for a Cambodia Visa From Nepal
A Nepali tourist who meets the above-mentioned requirements will be asked to fill out a straightforward application form online. The questions asked will mainly relate to health and security issues. Applicants will be asked, for example, to provide the following information:
- Full name and surname
- Passport number
- The country where the passport was issued
- The date on which the passport was issued and will expire
- The reason for the planned trip to Cambodia
To make sure that this application process can be processed as efficiently as possible, it is very important that all the information and documentation are at hand.
How Long Does it Take to Get a Visa for Cambodia?
It can take up to four business days for a Cambodia visa for Nepali citizens to be processed. However, any errors (big or small) on the online application form can result in delays.
Thus, all travelers are urged to verify their details and double-check the answers for accuracy before submitting it to make sure that all the details are right and correspond to their travel documents.
In the event that the visa application has been successful (most applications are), this tourist eVisa will be emailed to the address that was provided. It will be valid for a maximum of three months only.
It is, therefore, important to make sure that the email address is correct and still valid. Applicants from Nepal are requested also to print out a hard copy of this digital visa. Even though the eVisa is in fact linked to the passport of the traveler, Nepalese are strongly advised to carry a hard copy of their eVisa on their person.
Traveling From Nepal to Cambodia
Traveling from Kathmandu to Phnom Penh only takes 4 hours in a direct flight that covers over 1,700 miles (2,700 km) from Nepal to any of the international airports located in Cambodian territory.
However, it is also possible for Nepali travelers to enter Cambodia through one of the multiple land border crossings the country has with Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam:
- The Cambodia-Laos crossing borders are multiple, however, the main one is called Si Phan Don.
- Some of the Cambodia-Thailand checkpoints are Cham Yeam, Chong Jom, Chong Sa Ngam, and Ban Laem.
- There are four main Cambodia-Vietnam crossing borders: Le Thanh to O Yadao, Tinh Bien to Phnom Pen, Xa Xia to Prek Chak, and Vinh Xnong to Kaam Samnar.
