If you’re considering or planning on moving to Cambodia, it’s probably a good idea to learn a bit more about the country, their culture and what the country of Cambodia has to offer. Cambodia is centrally located in Southeast Asia, surrounded by many wonderful countries – Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Whether you’re a tourist or a resident, you’ll need to get a visa to come to, or stay in Cambodia. Tourists visas are pretty straightforward, but long-stay visas have gotten more complicated. Until very recently you could get a long-term visa for Cambodia easily and renew it indefinitely without being sponsored by a company, or having any particular qualifications to do anything, in fact. The rules were severely tightened in 2019, giving clear preference for those who are locally employed or of retirement age.

If you have any questions regarding moving overseas or you wish to begin scheduling moving to Cambodia, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you!
