I contacted them. There’s no iOne store in Siem Reap anymore, only in Phnom Penh… Luckily there’s still Future World as an authorized Apple reseller.March 16, 2017 at 9:12 am #1477
Hi, nice to see some new people on the forum! Correct, 30 US Dollars supporting fee is steep, given the lack of information about the new work permit application.
The Cambodian government has given the responsibility to process foreign work permits to a private company called E-Solutions (Cambodia) Co. It’s not known who owns this company or how they were able to secure this (pretty lucrative) government contract. I did some research but was not able to find a website or other online presence. In 2016, there were around 36000 work permit registrations, which means E-Solutions will make at least a million US Dollars in revenue this year. Not bad for a ghost company without any online presence or previous experience in developing IT systems.
The Cambodia Daily and the Phnom Penh Post have written news stories about E-Solutions.

Little is known of E-Solutions, which was incorporated in December 2015, and even less is known about the government’s selection process. Despite the technological innuendo of its name, the company has no corporate website or public web presence, and no track record.
The Ministry of Labor passed all responsibility for foreign work permits today to E-Solutions (Cambodia) Co., leaving a multitude of unanswered questions about the private company that will process, produce and distribute the permits online.
Ministry spokesman Heng Sour declined to answer questions about the company, its ownership or why it lacked a web presence a day before it was supposed to take over the online permitting. Instead, he referred all questions to the government proclamation, or prakas, signed earlier this month that regulates the process.March 3, 2017 at 1:15 pm #1497
