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.
Ahhh ok not bad then, if I was to get something with my letterhead that says I make x amount per month (in Canadian money of course), and worked there x amount of time and doing x job for them, would that be an acceptable for the requirement they seek?
My now wife paid a guy to handle it. Was almost painless. Had a contact in the MoFA & MoI so we're handed everything and walked through it. The local Sangkat was assholes. Even with all the paperwork, still had to pay $200 to marry in the province.
It was $100 at the local Sangkat to sign the register. That shitweasel with the glasses at the MFAIC took a $1200 bribe off of me, although they did get it done in a month. And then three weeks more to correct the mistakes. Plus $300 to the MI for my wife's hookey birth certificate. $60 for the blood test, and 50 fucking dollars from the UK embassy to photocopy my passport ID page. You abject cunts.
Did you personally have to go to the Sangkat and sign? Or can your wife just go down with the paperwork? Also did you have to go meet the village chief and police as well? I'm trying to get an idea of the number of trips I need to go to get it all done.
