I have a Cambodian (ordinary) visa valid until September 17. However I will leave Cambodia on September 18 evening or September 19 morning. On this website it is written that it would cost me $6 per day.

But I would like to ask someone who did it recently. Is it really completely hassle-free and easy?

I want to travel to Vietnam via a land crossing. But I'm also interested in the situation on other borders / airport.

    For completeness sake, what's your nationality? – JoErNanO Aug 30 '15 at 12:49

    Overstays are never "hassle-free", they are usually noted in your passport and every immigration official in the future will see that you have overstayed before, hence are a potential risk for overstaying again. Is staying one more day in Cambodia worth the risk? Only you can decide that. – user13044 Aug 31 '15 at 2:26

    Did you end up overstaying? What was the penalty? – JonathanReez Jan 27 '16 at 0:31

    Finally changed plans, extended visa etc. So I don't know. – Tomek Kobyliński Jan 27 '16 at 2:17

It’s not advisable, but you can overstay your Cambodian visa at a cost of $5 a day for the first 30 days and $6 a day after that, payable at Immigration on your way out of the country.

If you plan to only stay a few days more than 30, this is often cheaper than getting a visa extension. However, be warned that you’ll need exact change in US dollars. If you present them with a $20 bill for a $15 overstay, it’s very likely that you won’t be given change.

The Cambodia government immigration site says that overstayers are also liable to pay the cost of an extended visa, but in practice overstayers are only charged the $5- or $6-per-day fee.

DISCLAIMER - Obviously, there can be further troubles if this gets noted in your passport, so the advice is for you to contact the nearest concerning embassy, consulate or immigration office for the latest up-to-date information. An overstay can harm your chances of getting a future visa for this country, and may do so also for other countries.

    Might be worth noting that a recorded overstay anywhere can effect your future chances of getting visas - mostly for that country, but also potentially for others. – CMaster Jun 2 '16 at 7:50
  • Do you think I should make that clearer in my answer? @CMaster – Nathan Shoesmith Jun 2 '16 at 7:57
  • I'd mention the potential consqeuences explicitly, yes. – CMaster Jun 2 '16 at 7:59

    Just went and overstayed 60 days. It was 10usd a day. Also date on the visa was not the length of visa validity but date when you can enter. The date on entry exit stamp is how long you can stay. Could re enter without any problems. They told me overstay doesn't matter as long as tiu pay the fine – HMR Jun 15 '17 at 13:05
