Dear Ashish Jayswal,

Cambodia Visa is very easy to obtain it on arrival airport. Just fill in the form and you will get it in within 10 minutes. It costs you 30USD/person (in cash) and you pay directly to officers. Travelers are also required to show your photo (3x4cm) and their valid passport. It is similar when you get visa at border gate but it may take more time to process.
