Changes in ER (retirement) visa ? Proof of retirement required ?

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.

So, who or which article to believe? Stay tuned sports fans, there's more confusing shit to hit the media fan.

Maybe we should change the thread title to "How to get an EG visa"?

Or how to be able to stop here in Cambodia without working!

No supporting documentation required for EG. After 12 mth EG EOS you need to apply for the EOS relevant to your situation ie. EB,ER... or leave the country. Will you be able to get another EG EOS? The sub-decree is not clear on this, as with everything else.
I saw a link to a news story at it implies that you can only get a max six month EG.
As per the latest visa sub-decree, the EG EOS is available for 1,3,6,12 mth extension of stays.
I've also only seen EG referenced with 1, 3, and 6 month extension options. A 12 month extension would do nicely.

Would you be so kind as to link to or attach this latest visa sub-decree so that I may bandy it about, under the agents nose whilst attempting to cajole her into procuring such EOS on my behalf?

^^ Here's a link to the "Sub-decree on visa types". This does not include any recent changes. https://lookaside.fbsbx.com/file/Sub-de ... fJyy2q1Jmg

If you want to bandy it about under the agent's nose, you might be better off trying to find a copy in Khmer.

"Done in Phnom Penh, 20 June 2016"

So the EG visa is a one time only and cannot be extended, unlike the EB and ER, which can be extended for 12 months (EB) 24 months (ER)s then three time thereafter for 12 months at which the old gt must leave the country, and I assume come back!

It says "EG Visa Type can be extended for one (1) month, three (3) months, six (6) months, or twelve (12) months for one time only". Which implies you can go up to two years on one. But I'm not convinced that is what is really meant.

From the pdf linked above:

"EG visa type can be extended for one (1) month, three (3) months, six (6) months, or twelve (12) months for one time only"


Keep in mind, that document is probably out of date. However, it is the most recent one that has been released and translated into English.
