Work permits double in 2018 LOL, wonder why

Post by phuketrichard »

The number of foreigners issued with Cambodian work permits this year has more than doubled that of last year. The increase was driven by Chinese workers whose contribution alone could generate millions for the Kingdom’s economy each year.

Figures from the General Immigration Department, which comes under the Ministry of Interior showed that from January to August this year, the number of foreigners who registered for work permits had reached 118,280, compared with 57,000 last year.

The ministry’s secretary of state Sok Phal said recently that the number of Chinese nationals living in Cambodia had increased to 210,000, more than double that of last year. ... ouble-2018

I'll keep beating the same drum - if you don't have one yet and you're planning on getting one in 2019, don't go to an agent. Use the portal. It's $133 USD all-up, not the $300 or so an agent will convince you it is.

Edit: I'm talking about getting a work permit, not a Chinese person.
