Cambodia steps up travel curbs on foreigners

Most visas suspended, Thailand-style paperwork demanded prior to travel.

The Cambodian government will impose travel restrictions in order to reduce and contain the transmission of the coronavirus, effective from midnight on Tuesday.

In a statement dated Friday, the government said it would suspend the visa exemption policy and issuance of tourist visas, e-visas and visas on arrival to all foreigners for one month, the Khmer Times reported on Saturday.

Any foreigner wishing to travel to Cambodia must obtain a prior visa from Cambodian missions abroad, the statement said, adding that an individual must provide a medical certificate, issued by competent health authorities of their country no more than 72 hours prior to the date of travel, certifying that they have not tested positive for the Covid-19.
