14 days self quarrantine for all foreigners entering the Kingdom

Recommended Posts

Well that is exactly the thinking but of course closed borders come at a price.

 

I expect they will open to neighboring countries (VN, Thailand) before they open to people from other countries and they will do this only when  satisfied that both countries have the spread under control and are also implementing  ban on incoming travelers from outside the immediate region.

 

Given the state of the epidemic in US and Europe likely a long time before nationals from there can enter Cambodia.

Good interest rates in Cambodia & Laos.

Self quarantine is about as useless as breasts on a bull unless you are responsible 

as has been witnessed in Thailand, Responsible to head to Cambodia at this time ?

I think not

Covid is not being reported in Cambodia and i seriously doubt more than  a handful have been tested.

because He does not want it to be

 

why would he declare a state of emergency

why would he cancel khmer new years

Why close the borders (well he didn't; vietnam, laos and Thailand did ) 🙂

if all was safe.

 

How many people were close to the people off the cruise liner he allowed to dock

How many thousands of Chinese were flying in over the past 3 months, (an still are)

 

Think about it

 

I dont believe what the goverment is telling us here in Thailand and i sure as hell wouldn't trust anything out out of the Cambodian goverment..

Khmer New years has been canceled.

 

A ban by government on people flying in and out is in place

 

And the border ban for entry i(as opposed to exit) s a Cambodian decision.

 

Cambdia has not only taking strong measures, so womeuld say draconian ones.

As I understand it lots of non-essential shops are still open, they're leaving the owners to decide whether to close. Some venues have been closed, but someone here reported they can still go out for a social drink in Siem Reap.

Because it was never more than a focal outbreak efforts are on containment not nationwide lockdown.  People returning form abroad and contacts of known cases are put into forceable confinement.

 

Quite extensive measures -- of a sort that would be impossible in a democracy -- were used to track down and "apprehend" everyone falling into these 2 categories.

I have been saying this on here and elsewhere for a while now. It's about time they opened local borders at the very least between Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand where there is very low rates of Coronavirus.

 

They will have to soon or there will be mass riots, gold shop robberies, 7-11 convenience store attacks, as they people become more and more desperate.

 

It's all well and good for Prayut and Hun Sen in their ivory towers. If they think they can rely on domestic tourism to pull themselves out of this, where is the money going to come from with mass unemployment and people hardly able to put food on the table.

 

Regards the state of the USA and Europe, although I agree with you, there is a flip side. They will NOT WANT to be travelling far from home to see Angkor Wat or the Grand palace. They will holiday at home, if at all, with all travel restrictions in place and rules and regulations, social distancing, etc.

 

There would be absolutely no fun in flying all that way for 14 days quarantine etc. Western people will just not accept this. UK domestic travel bookings up 60% already, so it's too late now, even if they opened the borders tomorrow, for this year.

 

If Thailand or Cambodia think when they lift the restrictions, people will flood back they are very much in cuckooland. USA has more sights and attractions and diversity than any other country in the world and Europe certainly has far more to offer and better value these days, than Asia.

 

If they are waiting for the much lauded Chinese, they may have a long wait. The Chinese, who hate criticism, may not allow its citizens to travel internationally for fear of a second wave and them getting blamed for it.
