Official changes to work permits

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

The cost at the sangkat for the document (above) is very fluid, depending on how barang you look. Ask your landlord to sort it out.

There are a couple of things that require it, like business registration in your own name. Otherwise, yeah, ignore it for as long as you can.

Have you updated your registration to the new online system? You may not need it for an established business. I'd be keen to hear how you get on with a renewal, though - can you post after the event, please?

I understand. It's just one more paper to obtain. It's getting to be a pain dealing with the Khmers in their officers. Most of all they don't know why you are there in the first place. :(

I talked to my landlord, who is also a high rank police officer. I asked him if he could possibly sort out this new document. His reply was to put the business in my lady's name and get myself a retirement visa. He recommended that would save trouble and expense.
I am not one for giving up too easy.

Went to the sangkat yesterday, and was told to get photocopy's of documents needed and take them today.
I arrived at the sangkat this morning to find it was closed. Cambodia now never surprises me.
