which "C"...

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

Yesterday, I googled the "C" countries that had not yet received any votes and it appeared that none of them (Cambodia being one) offered an easy path to long term residency ... what am I missing?
good 1st query, john - in a nutshell here ya go...

no bogus/bureaucratic/bullshit/wait-a-bit/run-around process...
no "ransom" (income requirement) paid into any national bank acct....
no police check of every country you have ever lived...
no tedious translations of every form/document on some perverse requirement list...
no waiting "X"(?) number of months for the rusty gears of gubmint to process your request
quite simply...
request a 30 day bizness visa (on arrival) for $25 at PNH (phnom penh airport)
then go to (very simply) a travel agent(!) in the first 30 days
pay $285 for a one year (multiple entry bizness) visa --- get it forthwith.
repeat any/every year after that (whether you actually ever run a bizness or not)
ergo - "permanent" residence status (as long as you may wish) for $0.85 a day...
no fuss, no muss, no questions asked, no snivel-servant whining/inefficiency!
salud... [with anchor beers (at) $0.75ea]

g~j,

Many thanks for shedding light on my query. Seems like you've found a compatible fit and have covered all the bureaucratic angles. Much success in Cambodia.

1 - de nada

2a - compatible fit - sure - (at least holistically) fully realizing no place is "perfect"...
... but at least we have already spent a number of years living/traveling in SE Asia
(con suerte, not too many serious surprises left)

2b - no one will ever cover all the bureaucratic angles - anywhere!
... all one can do is... research widely + dyodd... be ready to engage plan B or plan C?

3 - gracias - like any "home" anywhere (and we have had many) it will be what we make it.

Good one!

g-j, then you are not too concerned about the Northern Hemisphere/nuclear conflict possibility? It was a serious consideration for us returning to S. America (jet stream).
Another adventure - you will make it great no doubt.

For those who choose or stay in the northern hemisphere, there is now documented proof that Vitamin C protects as a preventive measure and repairs as a post exposure measure.

Are you leaving Chile due to residency issue, wanderlust or other? I think I missed that part.

but, JH... it's at once quite simple, yet very complex...

but as no place is perfect...

Well, I look forward to hearing about it. That's an interesting choice of locale, I'd not have guessed it. Good luck and safe travels.

Czech (republic) would be my choice but its not cheap anymore, sort of like Chile.

I would also add Catalonia so I could live in Barcelona, its an Autonomous State, does that count????
