Funny now to look all the way back to Feb 2016, when I posted this CD article, and we (well some of us) got a little excited about possible 5 or 10 year visas, owning land, policies to attract longterm expats etc...
Well, that was back when I was young and naive and I believed announcements by the Ministry of Tourism I guess.

PPP article on elderly tourists mentions that new visa category will make it easier for foreigners to buy property, but still no details:

Cambodia looks to draw more elderly tourists
The Cambodian government is preparing a tourism policy to manage the increasing numbers of elderly foreign tourists visiting the Kingdom, an official at the Ministry of Tourism said yesterday.

Khunlong said elderly visitors need to be provided with better access to health care services and easier access to extended visas
. He added that the ministry will work with tour operators to eliminate barriers to encourage more senior tourist arrivals.

His comments come just days since immigration officials announced they would introduce a new visa category to allow foreign retirees to live in Cambodia without a work permit. The initiative is aimed at encouraging more expatriates to settle in Cambodia, and will support a government strategy to boost the country’s attractiveness as a second-home tourist destination by making it easier for foreigners to buy property.
