There will also be a departure tax on all domestic and international flights, which must be paid in US dollars.

If you are applying by mail, you will also need to enclose a self-addressed envelope, to which the Embassy will send back your documents. Only certified mail, Express mail, FedEx, DHL, and UPS will be accepted. Take careful note that the sender’s and receiver’s name must be the same on the return envelopes.

For your business visa, you will be required to present a letter from the company or an invitation to Cambodia.
