New form to keep track of foreigners in Kingdom- Foreigners Present in Cambodia System (FPCS)

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.

Sounds like Cambo is no fun anymore, starting now.

Of course all these forms and apps will be conveniently handled by the same tourist agencies we get our visa extensions from.

The government will realize in a few months they are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
It just depends on where more of their foreign exchange is coming from: Chinese, long-term expats, or short-term tourists.

I will start looking west not east. There may be no place left in Asia.

The app appears to be for accommodation owners who would most likely have smartphones.

The app is aiming for hotels, guest houses, etc etc. A 'rented house' or 'private house' or 'villa' isn't even in the list of accommodations....

Not really, you can download the app for free. And I haven't gotten an extension from a tour company for about 10 years.

The only tricky part for me was the - house name - as it is just a rental house without a name like a guesthouse would have. I just entered the house number and street. Other than that it was self explainitory and simple to use.

Usually the police come to the house and fill out paperwork and take copy of passport and face pic.

I'm puzzled as to why they would not want a copy of a persons current visa or did I somehow miss that part ?
For house name I just put "house".

Phum number I had no idea, but being about 100m from the Sangkat office I chose 1 and hoped for the best.

And agree about the visa part, surprised it didn't require that.

The Interior Ministry’s General Department of Immigration said today that it will not issue visa extension for foreigners who failed to be register in Foreigners Present in Cambodia System by July.
