1 Year Cambodia Visa (2017~2018)- anything new?

Postby Savittre » Fri Aug 25, 2017 5:20 pm

Last year, for the 1 year visa, your valid passport and money (forget how much) were all you needed, but there was some buzz going on about further requirements, which I believe never came to fruition.

How about 2017~2018, people? It's that time again. Passport & money and that's it to get the visa, or is there anything new this year?

I go to Ana's, always smooth & straightforward there.

Thanks!

No, you can only get 30 day visas.

I've been into Ana's a week ago. They know what's up, and had nothing to say about 30 day only.

Where'd you get this b.s. about 30 day only, Lucky?

he means the visa what you get from your entry point into Cambodia is a 30 day visa, what you buy from Ana is an EOS (Extension of stay) for your original visa (along those lines anyway)

They just threw this wrench into the equation. Unsubstantiated but the source Lucky Lucky seems to be one of the most popular visa agents. Sounds like if you have a letter from any company saying you are working in Cambodia you are good until 2018 and can avoid doing the work permit/paying the late fine for 2017 so save like $200+ this year.

Until they change their minds and point out that no letter puts you above the law. $200 is cheaper than paying $10 per day for not complying with the actual law, but each to their own.

1 Year business visa. I am a Canadian planning to retire in august to Cambodia and buy a small coffee shop. I read this morning as of OCTOBER 2 they are changing the laws on 1 year business visa. Is this true and what do I need to do to comply with the laws? I intend to pay my business taxes there , so how much more is there for me to do? regards

Get here first and stay at least six months (you can get a six month EB visa no issues) then look at a business.

That'll give you enough time to see the lay of the land, meet contacts, wake up with a few ladyboys and garner info from 440.

Thanks people. I had no intention of just jumping into the business. I will probably do the visa run a few times to get the lay of things. coming from living 9 years in the Philippines, so not a real newbie to Asian culture. thanks all
