Cambodia Legal Update: Deadline for Foreign Employee Work Permits has been Extended!


The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (“MLVT”) recently issued Notification 012/18 on 29 March 2018, through which the deadline to apply for the renewal of foreign employee work permit applications for 2018 has been extended until 30 April 2018.
In light of the ongoing steps by the authorities to enforce the laws regarding the employment of foreign nationals in Cambodia, unless you have already done so, we strongly recommend that your organization submits any relevant renewal applications to the MLVT as soon as possible.  

Please contact us at labor.kh@dfdl.com, if you have any further questions or need any assistance regarding the above.
