Deadline for renewing foreign work permits for 2021 has been extended to 31 May 2021

The deadline for renewing foreign work permits for 2021 has been extended to 31 May 2021—relief offered in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The extension acknowledges that some foreign employees have encountered challenges in returning to Cambodia to continue their work and to renew their foreign work permits.

Accordingly, a notice informs all business owners, enterprises, factories, and companies that the deadline for renewing foreign work permits for 2021 is extended to 31 May 2021 (from 31 March 2021) for those foreign employees who already obtained or possess foreign work permits for 2020. However, new foreign employees or business persons entering Cambodia for work or doing business are still required to follow the standard rules for obtaining new foreign work permits.
