U.S. citizens can also obtain a tourist visa to Cambodia upon arrival. A visa fee of $30 (tourist) or $35(business) should be paid directly to the Department of Immigration which is situated right across the Pochentong Airport in Phnompenh. Visas are also issued at Siemreap Airport in the Angkor Wat Region and other border crossings.
