Article is from July 30 - looks like old news/rumour unless someone can prove the contrary. And I think we would have heard if this was happening ?

In the mail.




I exited Cambodia via land (Poipet) in mid August with no issues.

I have several 12-month regular/business visa extensions and can't even spell "werk permit."

No issues at all.

I'm not suggesting anything one way or another, just sharing the facts of my experience.

(I admit, I was ever so slightly nervous while leaving, given the random reports of it happening, though.)

In MY own experience, and several others, nothing has changed regarding work permits since I first arrived in Cambodia some 7ish years ago until now.



If I was anyone working without one more I'd be in no great hurry to rush down to the nearest government office to sort the shit out.
