Do Cambodians Need a Visa?

If you're from Cambodia and thinking about visiting Thailand, it's important to know about visa requirements to make sure you can enter the country smoothly. This guide is here to help Cambodian citizens understand how to get a visa for Thailand, with support from Siam Legal every step of the way.

Short Visits to Thailand

Thanks to the bilateral agreement between Thailand and Cambodia, if you're holding an ordinary Cambodian passport, you can visit Thailand without a visa for up to 14 days. This is great news for short trips!

Here's what you need to remember:

  • Cambodians flying into Thailand can enter without a visa, but you must have proof that you'll leave Thailand within 14 days, like a return ticket.
  • If you're coming to Thailand by land or sea, you also get a 14-day stay without needing a visa. Make sure to check if there are any limits on how many times you can do this in a year.

To make sure your trip goes smoothly, you should:

  • Have a passport that's valid for at least 6 months when you enter Thailand.
  • Be able to show that you're leaving Thailand within 14 days unless you're planning to extend your stay under specific conditions.
  • Have enough money for your stay and a place to stay.

Staying Longer in Thailand

Cambodian citizens wishing to stay in Thailand beyond 14 days are required to apply for a tourist visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate before their departure.

Thailand and Cambodia Bilateral Agreement

Under the bilateral agreement between Thailand and Cambodia, Cambodian nationals who hold Diplomatic or Official passports are granted visa-exempt entry into Thailand for periods not exceeding 30 days. This arrangement facilitates a variety of visits, including leisure travel, business meetings, or official duties, ensuring seamless and barrier-free travel for Cambodian diplomatic and official representatives. The intention behind this policy is to foster diplomatic and official exchanges between Thailand and Cambodia. Should the stay exceed the 30-day limit, Cambodian individuals must obtain a visa appropriate for the longer duration and specific reason for their extended stay in Thailand.

Extra Tips:
While Thai Embassies and Consulates give out visas, remember that the final say on entering Thailand is with the immigration officers when you arrive. They can turn you away if they think you don't meet all the requirements. Sometimes rules change, so it's a good idea to check the latest visa information before your trip.

Siam Legal is here to help make sure you meet all the requirements for a smooth trip to Thailand. Understanding visa rules can be tricky, but we're here to offer expert advice and help with the visa application process, making your travel experience as easy as possible from start to finish.

Each entry allows a stay of up to 90 days, necessitating a border run every 90 days for a new entry stamp or re-entry.

It sets the stage for an extension to a 1-year multiple-entry visa following the acquisition of a work permit, facilitated through sponsorship by a Thai company.
