Where can we meet? Cambodia?


Recommended Posts

 

Assuming Thai borders are probably closed to US passport holders (even with an Elite Visa) for the rest of the year, where can we meet?  Cambodia is one of the few countries now accepting Americans and Asiana flights seem to be running to and from JFK and between ICN and PNH.  But can my Thai Better-Half get to Cambodia and back?  Flights look dicey but possible.  Are their land alternatives?  Might she be delayed reentry?

Do foreigners entering Cambodia still need to deposit US$3000 into local bank as local insurance on top of US$50,000 medical insurance cover ???

 

Land borders are closed (officially) so a flight will be necessary. 

 

I think re-entry may require applying through the Thai Embassy in Cambodia for Certificate of Entry and Quarantine for 2 weeks in Thailand. There could be delays in trying to return with the application process.

It's a horrible situation for those missing those they care about. 

 

 

You wrote ‘better half’ are you married? (Marriage Certificate?) ????

Thanks, Richard.  Information on Cambodian requirements are not clear or changing.  I read $2,000 deposit or payment and $90 insurance policy.  Quarantine is personal unless arriving in plane with someone who tests positive.  It hadn't occurred to me that she would need a CoE just to return--Good point, though deeply troubling.  And no we don't have a marriage certificate.

i know someone that just left Thailand to meet her boyfriend in Dubai, then onto turkey and Georgia for extended holiday,
the cost for him to come here was above the cost for her (and him) to have 2-3 months holiday

Just book her an apartment in Palma de Mallorca. Flight from Bangkok to Frankfurt 400 Euro. Frankfurt to Palma 60 Euro.

 

Then you can enjoy the Mediterranean. Of course you'll need her to apply for Schengen visa. I assume she is a well travelled woman of her own financial means?

Land borders are closed. But heard about people just walking through the forest, crossing the Thai-Cambodia border, and back.

 

 

 

Yes the OP should save his money and have her wander about in the jungle instead.

I have thought of Dubai (Georgia and even the Mediterranean will be cold by November) and I don't mind the cost. The real problem is her getting back to Thailand. I need to be sure that after a month or two together, when I will have to return to the US, she is able to fly back to Thailand easily.

Those requirements are accurate at the moment, but of more importance to you is that tourists are currently NOT allowed into Cambodia. Unless both you and your girlfriend are somehow both able to secure Cambodian business visas, meeting there is not a possibility for you until and unless they change their entry policy.
