Reply To: How to get a certificate of residency.
Update, January 2018 – Siem Reap’s immigration police is now asking US $10 to do the immigration registration paper. And US $20 if you also want them to process the residency registration paper (which is normally done by the commune). These are NOT the official prices, as these papers are normally free. Ask for a receipt and you will get a confusing story about why this is an extra (even personal) service by the officer you are talking to…. yada yada yada… In the end there is no other solution, then to accept this corruption or go back home empty-handed. So pay and keep on smiling or it will ruin your day.
However, do let us know if you had a different experience with the immigration police! We would love to hear that we were unlucky and there are actually some honest immigration officers out there! Unlikely, but who knows haha…
