FFS Visa and WP is the equivalent of two cans of beer a day. :facepalm:

Has everyone missed something down at the DoI and they really are offering free luxury accommodation, free food and beverage, free haircuts and flights home?

Or is it face-saving Khmer Style for people caught in the dragnet?

I'm almost curious enough to go and see what the holding cells are like.

Love How all costs in cambodia have to be put in The perspective of How many beers they represent.

Like if some one hesitate to change from their overpriced room because its only 100 dollars a month they dont give a fuck but when you explain that they can drink 6 beers a day for The money they save they start to think a little bit harder.

Universal currency - saves having to convert to Russian Roubles or the last similar Post with the 3 Indians handing themselves in - Rupees.

Pretty much inflation proof here in the KoW - exchange rate only varies with the promo ring pulls

Yes its not clear whether foreigners are really handing themselves in voluntarily, or whether this is just a new Khmer news expression for getting busted by immigration.
@Mishmash Good idea. Why don't you go visit that Scottish man in the holding cells and ask him if he gave himself up like they said ? :popcorn:

I AM curious. But in this case @fax says he was arrested sleeping rough on Street 51 and @splashback reckons he is a wanted felon.

I will check it out though - probably with the Russkies and/or the Indians

Thanks @fax saves messing around.

Unfortunately the vids won't play on my PC - but I can imagine and being there is not my cup of tea.

The 'handing in' seems strange but maybe they really had no choice, especially as the Visa and WP for any kind of meaningful income is fairly strict nowadays.
