My scenario is a bit complicated and I am seeking advise from someone who has detailed knowledge about residency procedures and rights in Cambodia.
Firstly, I am a Pakistani Citizen, and I am living in Malaysia and I am a recognized refugee by United Nations. I am currently in Malaysia on a temporary visa which is due to expire soon. I have been told that it cannot be extended further and I must go back to Pakistan to get a new Malaysian visa. I am unable to go Pakistan since I have a life threatening situation there. This means that I need to fly to another country where I can apply a Malaysian visa from and fly back to Malaysia.
As a Pakistani citizen, I have few options such as Nepal, Sri lanka and Cambodia. So If I visit Cambodia, I have to be on a RESIDENCE VISA to get entertained by Malaysian embassy which will allow me to get back to Malaysia on a new tourist visa.
Now, I have been told that all I need to do is to get into Cambodia on a Tourist Visa and it can be extended as much as I want. My question is if I enter on a tourist visa, what I need to do to be a resident? Or simplifying my question, what I need to do to get the right to go to other embassies in Cambodia to apply visas of respective countries?
I hope my question was clear. Thanks in advance.
