Introduce Yourself

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

Visa extentions only apply to a type E business visas available on arrival for 5 USD extra than a 30USD tourist visa.

Overstaying a visa will cost 10 USD per day un capped.
rumour is that 2000 USD is the unofficial overstay cap.

Better payed in USD not foreign currency especially at land crossings infamous for ripoffs (poi pet and koh kong).
Immigration officers in The airport are easy to deal with just make sure all documents are filled out properly a along with a passport sized photo .
Land crossings be prepared to bribe your way through .
2-3USD should speed things up.

I have a fair amount of experience leading teams, doing sales, training and all that malarky and in high positions for quite a large multinational corporation. would any of this help finding a potential job out there? Don't get me wrong I'd happily serve drinks to suppliments some income every so often if there bar owners were nice, the dream is to live in Cambodia for a while or perhaps longer depending on what I come across.

That said I'm in no hurry and would like to chill out for.a few months, work on physiotherapy and do some online courses without having 40hours a week stolen by work

You guys are hilarious. So far I've learned not to trust ricefarmersdaughter. I think I've got the visa part figured out, but do I need another ticket out of the country or will they not give a shit? Right now I'm coming in one way. Could I buy a boat ticket online or something to suffice as proof I'll leave the country at some point, or do I need a flight?

And would you all recommend any language resources? I'd also like to read up a lot on the culture.

You shouldn't need an onward ticket but this comes down to the airline policy not Cambodian regulations.

if the airline gets funny you can usually just sign a waiver saying you will meet any costs if denied entry.
nationals of some african and mid east countries are sometimes denied e class visa but normall given a tourist visa and allowed to enter.

Thinking it through, the only one to benefit from the "you must have an exit ticket" rule is the airline you've just flown in on.

Hi all, hope you're well,

So I've starting toying with the idea of quitting work, packing up and living in Phmon Penh for a while. I visited around 14 years ago and always wanted to return. It looks like I'll have the means to come November in the form of a 2k (GBP) bonus from work, which I'm hoping will give me some time to get myself established.

ITIL Change Manager at the moment having done various other middle-management non-jobs with fancy titles which don't really mean anything in the real world. Looking to pick up a TEFL qualification over the next few months in order to teach English, also a keen bodybuilder, so maybe personal training is an option?

A question for the seasoned expats...if you did it all again, knowing what you know now, what (if anything) would you do differently?
