Visa for Indian Citizens travelling to Cambodia by Bus from Vietnam


Myself along with my family we have planned travel to Vietnam in June-19 for tourism purpose. Thereafter i would like to travel to Cambodia by Bus and then fly to my home country India from Cambodia. I would like to know that being an Indian citizen can i get visa on arrival at Cambodia border if travelling by bus from Vietnam or do i need to pre-apply for Cambodia visa online or via embassy. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Hello Abhinandan,

You are right, you do not need a visa for Phu Quoc island for up to 30 day stay. However, as you will exit the island and fly to Ho Chi Minh city, you will require a visa for your this entry. We strongly advise that you contact the embassy of Vietnam in India to obtain a visa beforehand or apply for an e-visa service online.
