Cambodia Work Permit 2019 - Where did you get it and how much did it cost?

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.

OK,

I'll kick off. I got the 2019 WP at the local office of the ministry of labor and vocational training in my province. Total fee 195$ this year. Everything included.

<edit>
OK, it's 2019 already.....
What was the breakdown of that $195 as there has been no official announcement of any major changes in fees, so that seems about 50/60 too high

Just crossed my mind, what if your visa is nearly due. Must be loads of foreigners in Cambodia hastily arranging new WP's because their visa is due this or next month....

You don't need a new WP to get your 12 month EB EOS, you just need a letter of employment, which I think needs to be thumb printed now.

But for the WP they'll want a copy of your current EB EOS, etc.
Thumb printed? Is that a joke?

Joke? Not to my knowledge.

Just reporting what I read OTOF. Take that for what it's worth.
UPDATE:

some minor changes.

ALL non-tourist visas require a supporting letter when requesting an EOS and it must be signed and fingerprinted.
This is not a stat dec and does not require an embassy stamp.
EB extension - working letter.
EG extension a letter with details of the type of work looking for etc. (this is still sketchy)
Over 55 also requires the request letter, which was a requirement when the ER visa was first introduced.
Under 55 the supporting docs must be very strong.
That is all that has changed. NOTHING else has changed
Thank you

All new EOS applications now require a letter with thumbprint. No joke

I did. The 'agents must love you' was a more rhetorical comment since you appear to just hand over cash with no questions. lend me $100 please ;)

Feel free to post your experiences and price paid for getting a 'self employed WP for 2019' after you used your bargaining skills with the government official.

(This one's not rhetorical.)
