Information Updated June 2016.
It is quick and easy to get a Vietnam Visa in Phnom Penh. Here are three ways to do it:
1) Get your Vietnam Visa at the Vietnam Embassy in Phnom Penh
We’ve read a lot of negative reviews online about getting your visa at the Vietnam Embassy, but we gave it a shot anyway. Turns out it couldn’t have been easier and we definitely recommend it!
Bonus: the Embassy is 5 minutes from the Russian Market neighborhood by tuk tuk, which gives you a great excuse to go shopping at the market or try some of the best restaurants in Phnom Penh!
Vietnam Embassy Location: #436 Preah Monivong Blvd (Street 93), Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Hours: 8:30AM-11:30AM and 2:30PM-5PM
Website: Vietnam Embassy Phnom Penh
What you will need to bring:
- One 4×6 size passport picture
- An address for where you will stay in Vietnam (We Googled a random guest house in Saigon and wrote that address in)
Application forms are available inside the Vietnam Embassy and take about 5-10 minutes to fill out.

Be sure to check your visa before leaving the Vietnam Embassy to ensure that you received what you requested. If you want to keep your receipt you may need to ask for it.
2) Get your Vietnam Visa through a Travel Agent
The fee for getting your Vietnam Visa through a Travel Agency or guest house should only be a few dollars, which is comparable to the cost of taking a tuk tuk to and from the Vietnam Embassy to drop off and pick up your passport.
