It's not something you can promise or even less deliver, even if you are very well connected. A high flying lawyer , despite his top connections working with HE immediate family lost the small fortune he'd paid (to a Secretary of state and a relative by marriage he thought he could trust) to get it for an Italian national running an ngo.

Eventually he had to refund his client as he was getting nowhere .. and he never got his $$ back. He was asked more and more until he decided to cut his losses and run. Total damage in excess of 50k. Those guys are unreliable and sharks to each other.

You can bring logos advice to the bank.
Even when I did it my well connected lawyer was reluctant and only obliged as a personal favor.
Since then his office has turned down numerous requests.

The last westerner I know to get a KHR passport got it by way of services to the country.He was awarded a medal or somesuch by the king.

He was however moving in lofty circles due to his job at the time and rubbing the right shouders also,

Ultimately it was the H family who approved - it cost him no money - and he was reliably told.....no more citizenship for westerners ....or .....you would at least have to be double jointed and be able to suck yourself off backwards.

This was circa 2015

You keep talking about that and I was wondering if you had a point, Ricecakes.

They, citizenship, was $50,000 to 150,000 ... depending, 6 months ago. Times and prices change, along with prakas.

And there are many ...................... possibilities.

Last year it was pretty easy to obtain a Cambodian passport as a well known Dutch criminal got one by "investm,ent in the country" and now uses it to reside in Dubai.
From what I understand the guy never set foot on Cambodian soil.

It must have cost him as they ask for a blank criminal record from country of origin.

thanks for the wise worlds, in the recent past i used to be able to provide this service to my clients reliably now my contacts have issues thus i have been looking to find a new reliable way to do it fast as I have a particularly affluent client from a war torn country that needs it desperately.

There are many countries with easy CIPs - why must it be Cambodia for him?

Maybe he really like Angkor Wat. A few thousand free visits to the chapels of Angkor would see his investment back in under 5 years.

I did a quick calculation and figured that Cambodian citizenship would directly save me (or my company, rather), about $500 a year:

Work Permit: $100
Visa: $280
10-20 international trips a year, times $7 cash refund= $70 - $140

Edit: Plus some savings on visas for trips to other ASEAN countries that cost money otherwise.

I can confidently say with 100% certainty that westerners have received Khmer citizenship after 2015

I have been told that the office handling this is not processing anything at the moment but they will relocate soon and restart after the elections. Not sure if it will be business as usual or a whole new way of working as have no insight in to that
