[Confirmed] PP Post-Work Permits to be enforced by MOI & MOL

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.

You are remembering correctly. It might have been a law, but it was little known and there was no pay to actually obtain the proper documentation even if you wanted to, so it's extremely stupid to start asking for backdating now. Money going in the wrong pockets again. I certainly won't be paying for any past years. I suspect my employer (and most others) will quickly put and end to the backdating. Worse comes to worst I've got a new passport with only one or two visas in it.
I know several people here in Sihanoukville, self employed, who were able to get them without issue previously. Again, not sure about Phnom Penh...

We have this cool "One Window" office here that helps everyone deal with this stuff:

Our company sent around a memo early last week and gave all expats laminated copies of their work books just incase they get stopped.

It seems they are taking this one seriously and are going to follow through with cashing people.

To be honest, if they want to be part of this ASIAN movement they have to at least pretend like they care.

And not just ASEAN... remember we have member of the opposition now holding some high ranking seats. This could easily be an extension of their involvement.

I wouldn't worry about the opposition, they will be squashed when the time is right.

This is one big chess game for HE and he has one move in his pocket.

Everyone keeps giving him a lot of credit for being some grand thinker... he's not even fully high school educated. He was monk educated from 13 to 18 when he dropped out of school to join the army.

I suspect that his grand chess moves aren't as well planned as he gets credit for, or that there's someone smarter than him pulling his strings from above.

Or is that what he wants everyone to think.

He is smarter than a lot of people give him credit for.

You don't be in power as long as he has based on luck.

He's not credited with being a grand thinker! He is said to be one of the best strategists in the game/politics/world.

He knows what he is doing and he ain't afraid to play dumb to achieve his objective.

The uneducated don't often do well as strategists against the educated. we'll see how it turns out, but i think WAY too much credit is given.

I agree let's see how it turns out. My opinion is you have you money on the wrong horse.

Education ain't everything.

You can be the smartest man in the world and still not be able to control the people.
