Hey

You would go to a travel agent and ask them to arrange an extension for you.

Alternatively you can do a visa run, simply cross the border to a neighbouring country (Thailand would be best probably as you don't need a visa to go there) and then buy a new visa and re enter Cambodia.

Hope this helps.

I know this is old but I'll throw in..

Tourist visas can be extended once, if you want to stay longer you would have to make a visa run.

If you know you want to stay longer, get a Business Visa (Class E, not always called business, but always class E). $5 dollars more at the border and you have more options to extend in country.

I see different prices for extensions and then see the $5/day overstay fee. Assuming that the visa is for 30 days (as opposed to "one month" then we'll only overstay for 1 day. Where and how is this fee collected? Reply to this

Haven't done the extension in a while. But overstay charges are collected at passport control as you're leaving the country.

cheers for the reply dude , but i left cambodia a long time now

was easy enough to get extensions at tour agents , however didnt get one in the end just stayed for the 30 days i was given so couldnt recomed one to use for anyone else , but i expect a d.i.y visa run to thailand from siem reap shouldnt be to hard . Reply to this

If anyone is still interested - overstays are charged at the point of departure. It's $5 a day for the first month and then $6 a day after. It's nearly always cheaper to pay for an extension ($45 for 1 month) on a tourist visa than go through the hassle of dealing with immigration. Reply to this
