I did not know that John. I am on my extensions, and working. The immigration accompanied with the local police, and the relevant works department.
I did know they were coming and was told to have all my papers in order. I did not have a work permit. Now I have, and when you work out the cost over the year it is very little.

There's an option to get an ordinary/business visa on entry with the aim of looking for work, there is a specific designation like "ES" or something, and it gives you a limited amount of time like 6 months before you find work and then apply for a work permit. No idea how or if this works in principle.
EG (General) EOS (as I explained in my first post).

ES is the student EOS.

For more detailed, yet still extremely vague and left open to interpretation, information, read the latest sub-decree on immigration visas...

I was told the age was 60 by the visiting immigration from PP. This they told me was an option for me! But I am under that age, that only left me with the option of the tourist visa. But I have a small business so I have no problem with the work permit. Lets face it! If I was to work in many other countries I would need to acquire one.

Sorry to hijack, so much varying information about.

What's the best visa so I can potentially come and go from Cambodia for a year? from what I've read it's a 1 year business visa.. or should I get a 90 day and then extend it as and when?

Sorry I take it this topic has been done to death, just don't want to turn up and then apply for the wrong thing.


EDIT - based on the post below, arrive for a business visa - 30 days @ 35dollar, then go to a place to extend it by 6m or 1y
