Cant register a 2nd hand bike in Barangs name?

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.

Cant register a 2nd hand bike in Barangs name?

Post by phuketrichard »

on fb;
is this true?? what is the reason for such a crazy law?? Are Barangs ONLY to buy new bikes?
Hello, new regulations in Cambodia make it impossible to register a locally bought second hand bike in one"s own name as a foreigner. That means we cant cross borders with such a bike anymore.

I wonder how long before this (like work permits) is applied retroactively.

You're joking, right?

Vague/more laws = money.

Second hand imported bikes that have yet to be registered are still possible if you're willing to pay the new plate costs.
