NEW ! Information on Work Permits.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I would love to get a work permit but the company I work for are not registered so online I am stuck. This is good info but not for the gullible suckers who paid all the back pay over the last few years 😉

Are we absolutely sure that it states all back fees?
eg say I had 5 years worth of business visas - would that mean I would just need to pay for this years work permit, medical and working visa?
They would surely be losing a lot if that were indeed the case.
5 x 100 work permit back duty + 5 x 25 medical and the fine of 5 x 100.

I've already had to pay back fines... Anyways, if I no longer have an employer in Cambodia, am I liable for a fine or something? Not unless I start working for a registered company again, correct?

Let us know how you get on when you're caught working illegally.

I'm the same, 7 years of business visas but not one day working in the KoW. I'd get a work permit just to be in compliance of what ever grey area law.

I'm in the same boat as you Peck, have even tried getting a WP the last few years to avoid any issues, but without a business license or employer you can't get one anymore unfortunately.

Ya PSD, I don't foresee me working in the KoW but you never know. Plus if they do ever get around to visa changes, which have been talked about for years, we might be stuck in a technicality of having to pay.
