Meeting our Requirements

This page provides supplementary information on common visa requirements for applicants in Cambodia. Further information is available on the Home Affairs website by following the links to Help and Support >> Meeting Our Requirements.

Before submitting your application, you should check any other specific requirements for the visa you are applying for.

Fees and Charges for visas

Visa Application Charge (VAC)

The Visa Application Charge (VAC) is the amount of money you must pay for your visa application. The cost of visas changes from time to time. The cost of your visa is dependent on the date we receive your application.  For current visa pricing in AUD, go to the current visa pricing table.

To estimate the cost of your visa fees and charges in USD, go to Visa Pricing Estimator.

We will not process your application until we receive your payment. 

Payment Options

If you apply online, you can pay through ImmiAccount.  All online payments are charged in AUD and a credit card surcharge may apply.  Paying online is the safest and fastest way to pay. 

If you apply using a paper-based application, you will need to pay in cash (USD) at the AVAC.

For more information, please see: How to Pay.

Biometrics

Biometrics (facial and fingerprints) is collected from visa applicants of any nationality who are in Cambodia at the time of making a visa application to enter Australia, unless they are excluded or exempted from the programme. Further information can be found at Meeting our requirements > Biometrics.

If you apply online, you will receive an email informing you to provide your biometrics at the AVAC in Cambodia. You are required to attend in person, along with a copy of the email request, to provide your biometrics.

If you apply at an AVAC, you are required to provide your biometrics at the same time that you lodge your visa application.

Health

All visa applicants to Australia must meet the health requirement. You are responsible for the costs of the health examination.

You may be requested to undertake health examination as a legislative requirement for the visa. This depends on your personal circumstances, the type of visa you are applying for, how long you plan to stay in Australia and the country you are applying from. 

For information on the health requirement, including the circumstances on when a health examination may be required please go to Meeting our requirements > Health.

Did you know?
If you apply online, you can check if you need to complete a health examination in the ‘View health assessment’ tab in ImmiAccount.


Arrange your health examinations

If you are requested to undertake a health examination, you must arrange your health examinations with an immigration panel physician.  A panel physician is a doctor or a radiologist who has been appointed by the Australian Government to perform medical examinations on applicants for Australian visas outside Australia.

To find a panel physician, select ‘Cambodia’ from the list of the Department’s Offices and Locations and follow the link to Panel Physician.

Following your health examination, a Medical Officer of the Commonwealth (MOC) will assess the results of your examination.

Character

You must be of good character to visit or live in Australia. This means you must pass the character test and remain of good character.

When you apply for a visa or citizenship, you may be required to provide military certificates, police certificates (penal clearance) or provide us with further personal details as part of the visa application process. Your case officer will advise you of this requirement or you can refer to the relevant document checklist for the visa you are applying for.
