Just to be 100% accurate, that website is the official e-visa website of Cambodia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (hence the 'mfaic' in the URL and "gov.kh" indeed indicates an official government website domain in this case from the county of Cambodia). MFAIC are the honchos in charge of visas, immigration and such. That's what the previous poster meant by "consulate" even though its not a consulate per se. There are other websites that offer the visa service for grossly inflated prices, so not scams as such but still taking gross advantage of people's lack of knowledge or information.
Quick question about the e-visa. I see that when you apply, you upload a digital passport photo - does that mean you don't have to give them a printed passport photo when you arrive, or do you still need one?
There are some sites that are very similar to this which add on their own substantial charges.
And you should have 2 print-outs of the visa. One for them and one for you to keep with you. Many lodging places will want the visa number when you register. Can't recall if that is a law or if every place does it but I recall for sure some who have.
Paulosussex and lennybruce - that's great, thank you for your help!
By law, ALL hotels/guesthouses are required to record, in the case of Cambodian nationals their national ID Card Number and for foreign visitors their passport details. Some but not all hotels/guesthouses also wish to record your KH Visa number.
Larger hotels with a good computer system often just scan the information required by law, ie the passport details, in to their system and do not thereafter ask regular visitors/guests for their passport at check in as it is already held in their records.
Unlike VN hotels in KH do not usually retain your passport or submit a nightly police report. However, some low-end guesthouses in places such as Sihanhoukville may do this as their security as some guests have been known to do "a runner" without paying.

I see the price on the "legit" website is $37, but all the other forums I've visited, say the price for the e-visa is $25 vs. $20 for VOA. Does anyone know if the price has gone up for both of the visas? or is the VOA still only $20?
