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.

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.
Once you filled in details you still have to scroll down to whete your details are click it and check in.it will then ask to rescan passport then it asks for visa number and visa expiry.
I have set up 5 other people for my landlord and all of them had to put visa details in.

when is the deadline?
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.
You guy are kinda nuts. Don’t worry , be happy

Checked with my travel agent about registering. He laughed about it..
Said don't worry about it... not gonna enforce.. mostly to get rid of Vietnamese

Yes, the thing is very much self explanatory. Don’t know why it’s being debated so much here. I doubt it matters if your address isn’t 100% correct. At the end you just need to be registered.

Of course expats who fly in and out are used to the routine that has finger printing, picture taking, arrival form, and stamp..the departure portion stapled in the passport.
This new system is nothing to shit your pants over.
In Kampot, my house was a few blocks from the Provincial police HQ and neighbors were police and my landlord was retired police..He got a copy of my passport and filed the proper paperwork in person.
That was in 2018.
There are a lot of Vietnamese in Cambodia illegally and this will force landlords to obey the law.
But, I am certainly going to make sure my new landlord is registered and I am on the list.
I tried to explain this to my Khmer wife to translate for me and it confused her.
So, I am going to have to find the website and get my landlord and wife together...it should not be an issue.
My renewel is in August ....and I want it to go smooth.

I had to put my visa details in once you check in
Yes I stand corrected, I entered the details, but was surprised it didn't just get me to take a pic of that.

I didn't scroll down to click details when I log in I don't see that option either. I do have the 'foreigner staying report' which shows options:
Staying - with 'from date' - and 'to date'
or
Foreigner - with 'from date' - and 'to date'

Would that be where I might add my visa scan ? and Which would I use Staying or Foreigner (I'm on a retirement visa and have been here for 12 yrs) ?

Has anyone filled out those options ? I haven't because I'm leery that I may be signing myself up to leave the country.

EDIT - I just entered my visa information by clicking in 'Check in' then rescanning my passport page then click on 'Extended' where I was able to enter my Visa experiration date and the Visa number but I'm not sure if that is the proper way to do it.
