Cambodia’s PM Hun Sen Reopens Border to Cambodians Stranded Abroad Due to Pandemic

Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen on Wednesday announced that he was reopening the country’s borders to Cambodian nationals who have been living abroad during the coronavirus pandemic, regardless of whether they have been medically cleared of infection.

“Any Cambodians who are holding Cambodian passports and want to return to Cambodia are not required to have doctors’ notes certifying that they don’t have COVID-19,” the strongman said during a speech in the capital Phnom Penh, referring to the disease caused by the coronavirus.

“This measure will help people who are living overseas return to Cambodia faster to unite with their families in their own country.”
