Immigration denies rumours of border closures with Cambodia

Immigration authorities have moved to quell rumours of impending border checkpoint closures which had prompted Cambodians to cross into Thailand to buy bottled water.

Arthit Yakaew, chief of the Aranyaprathet border checkpoint, on Friday denied that the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak would force the border crossing at Aranyaprathet and Ban Khao Din in Khlong Hat district to close.

He dismissed the rumour as unfounded, saying the checkpoints were operating as usual although health screening had been stepped up.
