achtung- new visa rule!

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.

If you're applying for a work permit as a teacher, your letter of employment MUST be registered and stamped by the Ministry of Education. My application has been returned three times on this point. Previously, others have reported that you just keep submitting until someone let's it pass, but this requirement has been tightened up very recently. Apparently it's to stamp out fake documents submitted by people who aren't (gasp!) actually employed as teachers.

Oh, and your school must be registered with the Ministry, it's data populated in the online system, and the school must have the appropriate foreign employee quota permissions (which is checked by the system) - this is to weed out the "schools."
Correction to this, after frustratingly trying to convince an official at MoE that I needed him to stamp my document.

The letter of employment must be in the form of a contract between the school and the teacher, and it must be registered with and stamped by MINISTRY OF LABOR, not MoE. This can't be done by the employee, for obvious reasons.
