Unless you marry or reproduce with a VIet, then you can get a 5 year VISA for $50.

Yeah, in Vietnam you can get a job, marry or invest (in fact, they've created new visa categories for investors) but retirement is not on the menu.

From my observation and therefore I’m not suggesting facts, it’s easy for foreigners to own and run a business in Vietnam. Observations based on the number of Russians working in Nha Trang.

That's talking about immigrants, they only just introduced new retirement VISAs to Cambodia in 2017.

Yes but the news that the Chinese have "leased" the Cambodian coast for 99 years and basically taken over Sihanoukville seems to have driven most Western expats away. I guess Phnom Pehn is still livable?

"By 2018, the once-tranquil city was transformed. Sihanoukville today is an enclave of Chinese investments and is peppered with Chinese-run, -operated and -patroned hotels, apartment towers, restaurants and gambling dens. The area is also dotted with Chinatowns, festooned with neon signs in Mandarin replacing Khmer and English language signs."

I think the doors of SE Asia are closing

They also introduced TM30 equivalent last year: https://www.legal.co.th/resources/visa-immigration-law/thailand-immigration-law/cambodia-unveils-system-similar-thailands-tm-30-reporting/

 

 

It's not only Thailand, the whole world is cracking down on easy longstay visa.
