Urgh. How many times?

#1. Arrive Phnom Penh.
#2. Request ORDINARY visa. It's $35 for 1 month.
#3. During that month, preferably in the first 3 weeks go to any travel agent and ask for a 12 month extension. They *might* ask what type, if so say business. If they don't ask don't volunteer. It'll cost about $288 and take 3-7 days to get.

You can actually request 1/3/6/12 month extensions, 1 and 3 are single entry, 6 and 12 are multi entry.

If you want to stay longer than a year just get another extension in the last month of the first one.

#4. Unless you have brown skin in which case #2 might be more difficult.

#5. Don't mention "work permit" to anyone in a uniform. Do your tee-shirt thing, keep your head down, mouth closed, and under the radar.

Do a lot more research, be a lot better prepared and spend a lot more money...

Well, that's it then. Just ask for the regular visa for $35 at the airport, and you're all set.

How much will you charge to make us CEO t-shirts? [We want a huge discount for all the help we give you, ok?]
he knows what hes going to do and how its going to work, in a country where hes never done business before,
yet cant figure out how to get his business visa :facepalm:
great start!

Walkjivefly has just covered it for you,

and what he meant by keeping your mouth shut/under the radar... otherwise you will have the uniforms knocking on the door asking why you dont have work permits and a registered business... which will eat all of your 500 shirts profits thumbdown and if you are thinking of registering your business im guessing you might need to make more than 500 shirts to break even

It really depends. Do you feel comfortable paying bribes?

if you work for someone the company needs to apply for the work permit, supposedly
you need a business visa in order to work, whether that be for yourself or somebody else
