!2 month B-Visa 280 USD as of this past Friday.

Is the rate currently $280 for upgrading from a one month business visa to a 12 month business visa, multiple entry, at an agent? Any recommended agents in Phnom Penh that can do it cheaper?

Could I get the 12 month business visa, 1 week after entering with a 1 month business visa, or 3 or 4 days before the 1 month expires? Any time frame for upgrading?

You can upgrade visas anytime in the last month of that visa. Your new visa won't start until the old one expires... so don't leave the country in that first month. Or you'll still need another one. $285 is the going rate. $280 is very reasonable. You can do it yourself cheaper but it'll take days of begging and bribery to get it done and it's not worth the hassle.

Are 3 month business visas available?

Yes, but they're terrible value for money and only single entry (so if you want to leave Cambodia at any point - you will have to start with a brand new visa all over again).

And a year later: Same place, same price.

 

The only detail that I believe is worth mentioning is this:

 

As I had an extension in the passport and was just extending it again, the lady did not mention the new extension types. Probably she thought that I want a 'business' extension. I had to tell that I wanted an ER (retirement) extension. I do not work in Cambodia and do not want to buy an expensive work permit.

 

In sum, business as usual but attention needs to be paid to details.

Yes, I meant to post about this - retirement visa extensions are now available. I asked what the requirements were and was told "none except old". How old? They said 60 but were not really sure. It seems no official directives have been issued. So if 50 - 60, could certainly give it a try. At the moment no fund requirements such as in Thailand and can do it at any of the usual agents.

I m in the 50+ and under 60 category.  As a reminder, possibly superfluous: Bring one passport-size photo.

 

 

It seems to me that the immigration people are very reasonable. Last year when the work permit issue came up, they were caught off guard. Since the ordinary visa extension could not work any longer as it had before, i.e. one single category, they simply created the retirement version for older, education for younger, and some others. Lucky motors did not show me the list, so I have no idea about all the different categories.

 

In this way, all ambiguities will be solved by September 2017 at the latest. Anyone with the ordinary visa extension without a work permit will be fair game. The others do not need to have it but if caught working or owning a business they will feel the pain.

 

In sum, this is all very reasonable and worries that we might be faced with Thai-style visa nightmares have so far proved to be wrong.

Siem Riep  bring your own umbrella airport was charging USD 32 for tourist visas. Still USD 35 for E visa but had to tell the guy 3 times after he had already thrown my passport along the bench.

 

Also posted price for motor taxi is $9. Just walk outside for $2.

I have no idea if you can change from TR visa to "ordinary" visa in country, maybe someone who knows more can reply ?

If you go to Cambodia, next time don't ask for a tourist visa but ask for an ordinary visa which you can extend. After you got it and you have arrived at your destination then search for an agent who can send it for you to PP to extend it for 1 year. Cost approx 280++ USD (and don't forget the agents fee). Turn around is approx 4-5 days.

AFAIK it can't be done, you need to leave the country and return on an ordinary visa then get the one year extension for retirement.

 

Cost for one year extension is around $280-$290. No special requirement just passport and passport photo. Lucky Moto can do it for you and are reliable.
