One month visas - how many days is that?

    I hope this doesn't sound like a really silly question but I am just trying to figure out dates for my trip later this year.

    If I was to enter Cambodia on 4th October (for example) and I got a one month tourist visa on arrival - when would I have to leave? Would it be 4th November? Or would it be 30 days after I entered?

    Hope that makes sense, thanks.

    Not a silly question at all.

    Normally the day you enter counts as day 1, so they're counting days not nights the way a hotel or package holiday would - if you arrived on Monday evening and left on Tuesday morning, you'd have only stayed half a day in real time, but it would count to the border guards as 2 days. So if you arrive on 4 October with a 30 day visa on arrival, your last day (when you had to leave the country) would be 2 November.
