Thailand to keep Poipet border shut amid Covid

Thailand on Tuesday again denied a request from Banteay Meanchey provincial authorities to reopen the Poipet international border checkpoint to its Sa Kaeo province.

The border has been closed since March due to Covid-19 concerns.

Banteay Meanchey provincial governor Um Reatrey met with Sa Kaeo governor Woraphan Suwannus via video conference to discuss the reopening. The purpose is to allow Cambodians, especially vendors, enter Thailand to do business at the Rong Kluea market.
