This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related.

employment letter" not been notarized by the Embassy

Post by Fredi25 »

You will need to present the following to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs;

1. "Application for foreigner to marry Khmer citizen" (provided by MoFAIC)
2. Certificate of non-impediment/single status/divorce certificate (if applicable)/ex-spouses death certificate (if applicable)
3. Criminal record check from your country of citizenship
4. Passport with valid E type (Ordinary MEEV) visa, minimum 6 months validity
5. Letter of employment/proof of salary minimum $2500USD p/m (Male only). Work permit/work book/business license if employed in Cambodia.
6. Letter from your Embassy - permission/consent to marry
7. Pre-nuptial Medical certificate from Calmette Hospital (no older than 3 months)
8. 2x passport photos

NOTE: Foreign males must be under 50 years old to legally marry a Cambodian citizen in Cambodia.

All above documents must be notarised/certified from your nearest Embassy except 1,6 and 7.

5. Problem with "2500 us employment letter" been notarized
It needs to be certified/notarized by the Embassy

in that case if my employment letter" not been notarized by the Embassy
I have a employment letter without any confirmation ?

First you need to find out if your embassy will notarise the document. Some will send you to a local notary.
Notaries are approved by the relevant ministry so if you use one of them it should be ok. It depoemnds which ministry you are submitting the papers to. My understanding was it only has to be notarised by your embassy if your income is form abroad, if you work for a Cambodian firm it should not be necessary, but if you own a business in Europe or are employed by a foreign company outside Cambodia then you may need that verified somehow as the cambodians cannot check your status.
