 Cambodia - Formalities

Clearance

It seems that the only costs for cruising in Cambodia are visa costs (see below), and some "tea money" (a few dollars) for officials - normal in Asia.

Ideally, head to a marina (such as marina Oceania in Sihanoukville or the agent in Khao Kong) who will take care of all formalities. Reports indicate that both clearing in and out is simple and straightforward.

Immigration

Visas can be obtained on arrival  - US$25 for a one-month tourist visa which can be extended for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.

Having a visa in advance of arrival makes formalities simpler.

Electronic tourist visas can be obtained online. However, although they can be used at Koh Kong, they are not valid for entering the country at Sihanoukville.

For more information see http://www.mfaic.gov.kh/evisa/

Passports should have minimum  validity of 6 months.

Customs

The penalty for bringing illegal drugs into the country is severe.

It is advisable to have a copy of the prescription and a doctors letter for all medicines.

Firearms and ammunition must be declared.

Last updated November 2013.

Health

The health service is poor and for any medical emergency evacuation is recommended.

Malaria prophylaxis is recommended. Dengue Fever is widespread.

There have been outbreaks of Bird Flu resulting in a small number of human fatalities. Avoid live animal markets, poultry farms and places where you may come into close contact with domestic, caged or wild birds; and ensure poultry and egg dishes are properly cooked.

Restrictions

Keep to main routes in rural areas as Cambodia remains affected by landmines and unexploded ordnance. Mined areas may be unmarked.

Do not take photographs in or near airports or military bases. Also, ask permission before taking pictures of anyone especially monks and other religious figures.

Local Customs

You should dress appropriately when entering religious sites and remove shoes when entering temples and people’s homes.
