Wedding Party without marriage

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.

@Kammekor will be fuming.
So if you're over 50 and have an ER VISA (not working and thus no monthly income), where does that leave a person?

Never forget that the bride cries at the wedding and the groom cries later.

Says, "...Monthly income" , nothing about working.
Been told all they ask for is a letter, so write one up describing your income from ur rental properties back home and submit with a recent bank statement.
OR there is always adobe acrobat to show ur $2,500 pension.

You need a letter signed / legalized by your embassy.

Another letter will be accepted too, but at a 'surcharge'.

Not really.

But I can assure you mid-january 2019 that law had not yet been implemented by either MoFA or MoIA.

Which begs the question of what's the status now? Anybody tried recently? Asking for a friend.
