Also, whilst technically you cannot transfer a T-type visa to an E-type visa, there are agents who can provide this service, at an extortionate price...cheaper and safer just to do a border run.
An acquaintance just paid nearly the equivalent of a year's EOS to have three months added to her tourist visa, from one of those well known agents...

You need at least a month EB before anyone can even apply for ER. You can't transfer a tourist visa.
Incorrect, you need to have the E-type (Ordinary) visa before you can apply for the ER or the EB EOS. ER (retirement) & EB (Business) are extension of stay options, the visa you require to have in order to apply for either of those EOS's (or the ET, EG, EP, ES,) is the E-type visa (issued on arrival or in advance from a Cambodian Embassy).

Also, whilst technically you cannot transfer a T-type visa to an E-type visa, there are agents who can provide this service, at an extortionate price...cheaper and safer just to do a border run.
PDS-Kiwi you seem to be very knowledgeable on this subject. Without all the E-Numbered visa's which to some are very confusing.
From holding an EB extension of stay, this can be transferred to an ER visa via a agent?
Also using an agent what would the agent make in dollars with processing visa's? Or do the immigration make the big cut?

I once asked for the conversion of a NGO visa to an Ordinary visa, the 'reputable agents' wanted over 300 USD for this service, plus the price of an EOS, so totalling over 600 USD for a stamp and a sticker in the passport. I decided a weekend in Bangkok was a better way to spend that money and get a new ordinary visa upon return.

AndyKK, about a month before your EB EOS expires, take it to an agent and apply for the ER EOS, same price as usual, depending on the agent you use, $270 - 300 for a 12 mth EOS.

No need to leave and re-enter on an E-type VOA in order to apply for a different EOS category.

I think PSD Kiwi is fast becoming the go-to guy for visa/Work permits questions.

Have you ever thought of setting up an agency?

Ha,ha, the shoes on the other foot now lol. Yes, E-type (Ordinary) visa at port of entry. Which is the business visa option. They changed the name a few years back. It's still a business visa though, so I was right in that you need a business visa before you can get a retirement visa. Good that you cleared it up as far as the E-type (Ordinary) goes for new arrivals though.
