Cambodia Physical Visa Instructions & Application Form

Applicable for selected tours entering Cambodia via cruise port.

All Wendy Wu group tours include the Cambodia visa processing fee, unless you have opted to arrange this yourself. For private tours or short stays, the visa may not be included, so please refer to your invoice. 

For entry to Cambodia via cruise, you will need to send your passport to our office in Sydney.

An e-visa is not accepted when entering Cambodia via cruise. Instead, a physical visa that is issued in your passport prior to departure from Australia is required. If you are travelling on the Mekong Explorer, A Mekong Experience, Thailand & Mekong Experience, Grand Mekong Odyssey or Victoria Mekong Upstream tours, please note that an e-Visa is not accepted at the cruise port and a physical visa must be arranged prior to departure from Australia.

If you are entering Cambodia via flight - please refer to e-Visa instructions here

We require the documents listed below to apply for your visa. Visa documents are due between 75 days prior to travel and no later than 60 days prior to departure. Please do not send your passport in earlier than 75 days before travel. Urgent fees will apply if received within 45 days of departure. Applications will not be accepted within 30 days of departure. 


Please send the documents listed below, including your passport, via registered mail or courier to our office. The forms must be original and not photocopies. If you wish to deliver in person, please provide us with at least 24 hours notice.

Visa Conditions

  • The Cambodia Embassy is very strict about the presentation of applications. Including, but not limited to your form/s, passport validity or photo, if any documentation or material are incorrect then the consulate will reject the application. In this case, the customer will incur any urgent processing fees or tour cancellation costs. Wendy Wu Tours cannot accept responsibility for any failure in this respect.
  • Wendy Wu Tours has no control over Consular decisions to issue visas. Once your application is submitted, the Consulate may require you to pay additional fees or provide further documents, information, and/or material. In some cases, the Consulate will require the applicant to submit their passport and visa application forms in person.
  • It is very important that you read the instruction sheet and visa application form carefully. Please ensure you dispatch passports and visa applications forms before the due date. If you believe your visa application may be rejected, then contact the Visa Department.
  • A passport with a minimum of six months validity is required for customers traveling to all countries in our programme. Visa fees are included for Australian passport holders in all fully inclusive group tours. Non-Australian passport holders will incur additional fees.
