Violence in Sihanoukville

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.

Check out this site.

They charge you $20 to register for you. That's hilarious!

They get the questions from the embassy site. They send you the questions. You answer the questions. You send them the filled out questions. They read your answers and answer the questions on the embassy site for you.

WoW, talk about a pointless middleman.

I was living in SEasia for several years. Never registered. Never had problems.

I've lived here for many years. Went to the embassy to renew a passport. No questions.

And I don't expect any hassle when going back next time either.

There isn't a rule that you have to register anywhere.
Yeah I know :). I should have included a "just messing with you" statement.

Ya lol I was first thinking you were serious about that. About not registering with the STEP program. I was like WTF?!

Of course I've never had a problem even after not registering for all my travels around the Middle East.

Travisa :facepalm: looking to make a quick $20, good to find visa requirements free though.

Yeah I thought it was just "suggested" so that if you go missing and people are looking for you the embassy knows you were here.

Meanwhile in Chicago, a city that gets 50 million tourists a year, 82 people were shot in an 84-hour window around the 4th of July. Maybe we should kill more people down here to up tourism.

I'll register with the US embassy dweebs about the same time pigs sprout wings, shoot flames out their butts and fly.

As to the beach. Situational awareness. Just give up your valubles? That just encourages them. Like rats, a little slice n' dice on the leader and the rest go back to the provinces to plant rice. None of them are pros, just opportunists. Get drunk alone and stagger, your a target.

Maybe Chicago should stop celebrating the 4th of July.

How many of those 82 people shot were tourists?
