If anyone has reliable answers to the financial questions raised in OP I would appreciate them. Reliable only, preferably from a govt. source. NOT hearsay.

At Phnom Penh’s open-air Golden Sorya Mall on Wednesday, current and future foreign retirees said they had no complaints about the existing visa system and would only switch to retirement visas if they had no other choice.

The article also says ;

Expatriates already retired in Cambodia on business visas will not need to switch to the new visas, he added, but will have the option.

Sounds like the usual meticulously prepared announcement. For sure, all will be ready by Monday:
Maj. Gen. Veasna’s deputy, Tho Sreng, said the immigration department was aiming to make the new visas available on Monday, but that delays were possible as officials continued to notify foreign embassies about the change.
Both Maj. Gen. Veasna and Mr. Sreng said they did not know how much the retirement visas would cost.
AFAIK work permits are not required if you are not working, or does the CD know differently ? I thought that was at least clear, but apparently not.
Cambodia’s unusually permissive visa regime has historically meant that foreigners could theoretically stay in the country indefinitely by renewing their business visas every 12 months—regardless of whether they were actually employed in the country. Work permits are now officially required in addition to business visas, but the regulation is rarely enforced.
Prediction: Announcement, rumours, back-tracking, more rumours, further announcement, rumours, blabla. Not there yet.
(And no, Table, this is not official. :wink: )

Sounds official to me. AFAIK a developing country is one where officials can't make up their collective mind so that the rest of us live in interminable doubt.
