Available for $27 via http://evisa.mfaic.gov.kh/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; you can get a 30 day tourist visa. It doesn't take up a whole page of your passport like the visa on arrival does, but also can only be extended once. Many land border crossings will not accept them, but all of the airports will.
Visa on Arrival
You have two choices here, Tourist or Ordinary (business). The Ordinary is $5 more ($25) however it can be extended for a year at a time indefinitely. The tourist visa ($20) can only be extended once for 30 days. There have been some reports of agents demanding to know what your business is for an Ordinary visa... just give them the name of some school here and they seem to leave you alone.
A word to the wise, if you are approached by an official at the airport to 'facilitate' your extension, be very sure to get his mobile number AND ALSO make a point of writing down his badge number in front of him or ask to take his photo. He WILL freak out, just tell him "no problem" repeatedly until he calms down. He or his courier will deliver your passport to you within two working days. Immediately check that you have two stickers, the one month visa and the 12 month extension, that the dates add up to 13 months, and that they are E class. You do not need to pay the handler any extra for delivering your passport, although a dollar never hurts.

Let me know if anything on there doesn't sound right.
StroppyChops: What is the advantage to getting your ordinary visa (there is no business visa) extended at the airport? Is it so you can get 13 months all in one go? I think I trust travel agents more than airport officials, to be honest, and have always done it that way.
The Cambodian 'Ordinary visa' equates to what most travellers understand as 'Business visa', and yep, that's the only benefit. It's a personal thing, but I like "just getting it done" on the way in, and for an extra $10 per passport its worth it to me. This way was recommended to me by some long term expats I traveled with, other travellers might prefer the other approach. Your comment about trust is very valid.movetocambodia wrote:StroppyChops: What is the advantage to getting your ordinary visa (there is no business visa) extended at the airport?

it was a total of $28
$20 for visa
$5 for service
$3 for cc charge
They raised the $5 service charge to $7 and the CC charge does not appear till u give them ur cc.
so new total is now $30
Only good for Poi Pet land border an flying in, ( sometimes Koh Kong if there in the mood an u give them a tip)
Not worth it in my eyes to save 1/2 page for $10
