Foreign Residents to Forgo Visa Renewals For Failing to Register in New Online System

The Cambodian Immigration Department is looking to get all foreign nationals, tourists and residents, registered on a new application and threatened on Monday to deny visa renewals for foreign nationals failing to comply.

The Interior Ministry’s Immigration Department on Monday issued a statement threatening to cease visa renewals starting July 1, 2020, if foreigners failed to register themselves on the “Foreigner Presence in Cambodia System” mobile phone application.

Starting early January, Cambodian police and immigration officials posted on Facebook meetings with guesthouse and hotel owners to explain the new system, which requires accommodation owners to register the date of check-in, check-out, and passport details. The same will apply to landlords and their foreign tenants.
