Cambodian Passports

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Did she mention how difficult it was it how long it took? Our language tutor and his wife got theirs the other day, I'll ask him how he went about it.

Please;
How long it took
how much it cost
anything other than the old passport to show
Where

very interested in learning this.
Gf needs a new one next year and rather than a 2 year exetension would prefer a 10 year passport

An update on this.. I decided to get a passport for the oldest girl in the family in preparation for her first trip o/s. She is 2 months off her 15 th birthday. After arriving at the passport office, I confirmed that it would be the new ''10 year passport . the price was $120, and would be ready in 45 days. Took along the family book and her birth certificate , and it was all done in 45 minuets, even though there was a steady flow of people, moto's, cars and minivans bringing in people and leaving. But her mother will have to go there on Monday to thumb print a document because of her age.

The new location is best described as somewhere in the ''back blocks'' so I will leave it to someone else to give the GPS and map, but we crossed over the new Takhmau bridge and headed north on the east side of the Tonli Bassic , as this was the closest route for us.

One can see a lot of thought [ corruption ] has gone into why the passport Office has moved from the old site to this new site. Hopefully this old building now being used is only temporary while they build a new building somewhere.

Over 20 police trucks opposite , so you can safety leave you moto

Just looked on the Google maps Co-ords for passport office 11.513506 and 104.950337 and now makes sense if you look at the satellite imagery , north east of there, there is a very large reclamation of sand filling and a very large area already built in new ''row houses''
