Yes to all the above and currently requires nothing but your passport and a form filled out.
Presumably there is an age requirement but passport suffices for that. I have not gotten a clrar answer on age though. 60 and up for sure. Not clear re 50-59.
Requirements may tighten in future but for now no need to show proof of funds or income

Age is over 55 for no financials.

Unlikely to tighten up the rules in the near future as they only introduced the ES (ER?) VISA in 2017.

Hmmmm.  Wondering if there is any sort of embassy letter such as Thailand USA embassies used to give for income method?  If not, any idea what type of documentation they would accept?  I would have several sources, dividend, interest statements, past income values, projected income etc, from my bank and broker.  And my bank Etrade said they would issue a letter saying the estimated amounts are true and factual for the next year(s).   I doubt the Cambodians would understand all of that, but I would be willing to provide it

If under 55, you might get a Cambodian retirement visa just by showing funds in a bank account.  Be careful sharing any banking or financial information in Cambodia.

 

ER visa extension. The new retirement visa extension is meant for those of retirement age who can show documentation of retirement in their home country (such as a pension or Social Security) and prove that they have the funds to support themselves. ER visa extensions are usually only granted to those who are 55 and up, but some have reported being able to get one at a younger age. Those 55 and up are not usually asked to show evidence of retirement, but those under 55 will be asked. Often, proof of savings is enough.  The criteria for those under 55 have not been defined and varies depending on which agent you use to apply. The ER visa extension cannot be used if the visa holder is employed, but holders of this visa extension do not need to get a work permit. The ER retirement visa extension can be issued for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months.

Apply for a "ordinary visa on arrival"   cost $35  valid for 30days

ONLINE visa is ONLY tourist visa- can not be changed

 

than go to just about ANY travel agent in town and ask for a ER 1 year extension( 1 years extension cause ur retired- over 50)  around $285.

good for multiple re entries

 

IF u apply for a year year EB visa ( for Working/Business), u might in the future need show a work permit which u cant get UNLESS ur working..

Right now there are no conditions for getting a ER extension.

hi, is this still true?

Is it $35 plus some "processing fee"?

Do they take baht or dollars only?

Can you do it on any Thai-Cambodian border post?

 

Is it possible, desireable to get an "E? visa" on arrival to convert later, instead of a T visa?

silly question... Is the border at aranyaprather/poipet open at weekends? i want to go across and back with the th mrs., she wants to drive us over and back, same day. she as a uk licence with an idp for thailand.. i think i read that cambodia doesn't accept idp. will a uk driving licence and a thai driver draw any attention?

Border is open weekends.

If you are just crossing the border better to leave car in Aran. The idp will be the least of your problems.

There has been problems for people going over and back in one day. Take extra cash.

Huge parking lot as you approach the Poi Pet border on your right, only 100 meters to immigration.  ZERO reason to take ur car to Cambodia for the day!!!

Cambodia immigration will most likely charge you 300 baht if u cross back the same day (over the 1,500 for the visa)

so... drive for 2-3 hours to Chanthaburi or Surin and pay $35, or an extra $5 if paying in Thai Baht

or... drive for 20-30 minutes to Rongkluea and pay 1,800 ($60) to go Poipet for an hour?

hmm... I wonder if there's any long-term benefit in getting a one-year multi-entry Cambodian visa...
