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.

That's because the link in the OP, cut and pasted directly from the OP's pdf is wrong.

Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training would be 'mlvt'.

Excellent, thank you.

Does anybody have any idea what the "Stay Permit" part of the application is referring to?

What changes, nothing new in that announcement that I could see? These type of announcements are made every year in advance.

We had some ministry officials around checking all our passports/visas/ work permits today. We were asked to supply residency certificates earlier in the year to comply with some new (or previously unenforced) directive. This time they said all foreigners will need a residency certificate for our new permits. I'm not sure how easy it is to get one, if anyone knows I'd be interested. I know you can get it from the sangkat but I don't know if I'm registered with them.

This is typically organised with the participation of your landlord, but may or not be influenced by whether the landlord has paid tax on the property recently. If he hasn't, you may or may not be screwed.
