Say, one for teaching and one for food vending (street cart)?
Also, is it possible to travel there from the U.S. and obtain a business visa? or are they still closed...
I understand Vietnam is re-opening schools.
You can not travel here from the US, especially if you are a US citizen. US citizens are banned from entering. Hopefully this will change soon.
You can not get a business visa on arrival. Some can get an E type 30 day visa and extend that to EB, ER etc depending on credentials.
That said, I certainly hope you're talking about future plans. Based on your comments about it being open for US citizens, it sounds like you're thinking of coming here now? Good luck with that. Cambodia is Not the place for a foreigner to get a job right now. I'm not sure how you'll get a teaching job with schools being closed until at least the Fall. If schools were to bring English teachers back on staff right now, they'd probably start with the ones they just let go due to school closures. And street food carts - Who would you sell food to? There are no tourists anymore. I think half of the food carts in Siem Reap have disappeared, and those are locals. If they can't make it, I highly doubt a Cambodia newbie foreigner can. No offense to you personally. I don't think it would wok for anyone. It's a bad time to move to Cambodia. Probably the Worst time to pick. Check the status in six months, with plans to move here in Fall at earliest If schools open back up. Personally, I'd wait more like a year. Who knows how the school situation is going to go when they do open again. And personally I'd forget the food cart thing all together.
I am in the U.S. now (May 4th), but I spent the last 3.5 years in Siem Reap.
Out of work teacher. See my post "Trapped Teacher"
Worked out well. Apparently the U.S. Govt has issued pandemic unemployment benefits for people who lost their jobs due to COVID or are sick from it. I didn't even work in the U.S. except for a short period of time.
In complete disbelief, I found out I am eligible even though I was not working in the USA.
I now get... wait for it...
$ 196.00 on a debit card for food every month; free housing and a cash payment of $867.00 PER WEEK for 39 weeks. In addition I get another $ 215.00 cash while in free housing for essentials.
My first payment was processed and I received a check for past weeks totaling $ 6537.00
$ 867.00 more to process tomorrow 16 May. Then every week until late November.
$ 215.00 per week starts May 21st
39 weeks starting mid-feb puts me into middle of November.
Plane ticket; new clothes; new gear; new computer; 1 year visa; new moto; apt paid 1 year; 1 year food cash reserve
and I will still max-out the $10,000.00 cash-on-hand limit for international travel restrictions when I come back.
Total shock and disbelief.
I have been working my ass off in Cambo, giving up 12 hours per day and getting paid for 6, living tough for years. Just to buy food, gas and entertainment. School checks varied 800-1300 per month. Not complaining. It's a good life.
Now I sit back and collect $ 3700.00 per month while sitting on my ass.
They even canceled the work search requirement due to COVID. They can't evict you; garnish these benefit wages or stop them for any reason.
I take back all of the bad things I have ever said about the great nation of the United States.
See ya in Nov.
$ 867.00 per week x 39 weeks / cash
$ 215.00 per month x 6 months / cash
$ 196.00 per month x 6 months / food - debit card
Ridiculous. I feel a little guilty, but will put it to good use.
$ 1176.00 / food card
$ 32,103.00 / CASH
