Retirement visa changes?

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.

The request letter is a fairly new development, most agents will just produce it on their clients behalf and won't even have the client thumbprint it. I wouldn't stress too much about it, unless you're applying yourself directly with the DoI.

But this thread is about the ER EOS...not the EB EOS.
True, sorry.

Interesting to read about the request letter. Rather simple but something that wasn't required of me last year for an EB-EOS.

It's good to learn of new developments. :thumb:
interesting. i was told i did not need to produce anything as I was renewing, not getting new, but then I am over 60. Had no problems'

Same. Probably not required but I also provide a pension and bank acc statement.

Like I said, most agents will just produce the request letter on their clients behalf and won't even have the client thumbprint it. Do people not bother reading the entire post?

Theres an agent in Kampot saying as of this year you need a letter of retirement,previously you only needed to be over 55.

Anyone heard of this change?
Yes, I thumbprinted a letter stating how much I spent every month. Had to pay $5 for the letter (which the agent drafted after asking me how much I spent).
So you got the letter from the agent, but handled the extension yourself separately?

The following details may be helpful:- I year extension $288 taking approx. 15 days, 1 day express service if you pay an extra $70,thumbprint and sign a letter agent will prepare for you, you need to provide your address and telephone number. :hattip:

I guess they give you a receipt with a number and you also always keep copy of ur passport and current visa.
NO traveling, :-)

ONE question. if you come in on a 30 day visa, guess u need apply right away for ur extension so you dont get caught out not having ur new extension before ur 30 day visa expires and get hit with overstay.
OR?
