achtung- new visa rule!

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.

Submit the employment letter :popcorn:

Does the employment letter have to be stamped from a Cambodian registered company?
There's an option on the online WP application to get a "freelancer" WP, but if you also need a Cambodian-registered employer, that seems to be redundant?

You can only apply for a 'freelancer WP' if you do freelance work for Cambodian registered companies. If you do freelance work for non registered or foreign parties you are not eligible for a WP.

[edit]
at least this what the guy at the ministry told me in Jan / Feb.

It may have been last month to give a little breathing time for some nationalities who may not have received their work permits.
Before it was wp and business cert. Change every few months now. :(

Now you can apparently get a self-employed freelance work permit.

When you submit the WP application they give you receipt right?? Maybe that will be sufficiency?? Please update what was you results. Because i'm in the same boat.

long extensions & tourists visas in Thailand are the same as they have been for decades..
the only things that change are the visa exempts and number of tourist visas allowed.

here: https://fwcms.mlvt.gov.kh/workers/self/register

But if you need an kh-registered employment letter, what's the point?
Seems there's still no solution for freelancers working for foreign clients, or remote workers (employed by foreign company, living in Cambodia).
