Cambodia suspends sending laborers to Thailand after COVID-19 outbreak

Cambodia suspended sending laborers to neighboring Thailand on Monday after the latter has reported a surge in COVID-19 infections in its Samut Sakhon province, some 300 km away from the border.

In a statement issued to private recruitment agencies and relevant officials, Cambodia’s Labor Minister Ith Samheng said, “Sending MoU-based and seasonal laborers to Thailand must be temporarily suspended from now on until further notice.”

He also urged the recruitment companies to work closely with Thai employers or employers’ association and authorities to provide help to Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand when necessary.
