A new visa question

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.

Stroppy, is there a diff in $ form EB to ER designation. Was there any other docs needed for either?
Thanks. :hattip:
No, same price - I've heard from others that you'll get an ER if you're actually 60 (which is obviously calculated from your passport) and from one friend who snuck in at 59 - I think he turns 60 in the duration of the visa. Others reported earlier in the year of being able to get an ER regardless of their age, but that seems to have dried up.
So what is the point in the differentiation?

As others stated previously, more points for corruption/extortion. Seriously though, I think they'll be implementing the different EOS categories more vigorously over time but simply haven't had the training to be getting it right yet, so any EIs are being processed to EBs. I guess we'll hear more when expats start getting hit by immigration police (for tea money) for having the wrong category, and what the outcome will be when you refuse to pay a "fine" for something that was out of your hands anyway.
