Mandatory quarantine for14days

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Great, i thought you had to
if you can acquire a letter of invitation, that is all you need,
if you are coming as a sponsored person, that requires more documentation, including wage plans, work routine times etc etc and a certificate from a government website saying its all been cleared
if you are coming as a general traveller, that just requires a letter of invitation from a registered company saying that they are offering you a job, i have seen numerous reports of invitations to study being accepted as well
Hello Jamie_Lambo!

Can you please share some information on what type of document did you have? And what type of visa did you apply for?

Be aware that the new Consular Officer at the Embassy in London is being very strict on the supporting documentation criteria, letter of invitation/offer of employment, company tax Patent and company business license are required. Can also apply if enrolled in a Cambodian registered educational institution, which also.requires extensive supporting documentation.

The VAPG (sponsorship) scheme was suspended about 2 months ago, so no longer applies.

The only Visa available to general travellers, with justification and supporting documentation, is the E-type (Ordinary) Visa, which Embassies continue to incorrectly refer to as the "Business" Visa.

It really depends on the Cambodian embassy you apply at. Some are easier than others.

That is true, the criteria differs significantly between some of the Embassies/Consulates, some are much more relaxed/lenient, however many have implemented even stricter criteria in the past few months.

As I have advised numerous times, anyone wishing to apply for a Visa needs to contact the relevant Embassy/Consulate to confirm exactly what their criteria is.

Requirements in Bangkok are stiff although gav got one being married;

Image

not sure i can get all they desire and i told the wife she needs stay 15 days in a prison cell with someone she doesn't know
she did NOT take that well.

Plus reading what farangs experience as far as room /food go, cant image the new 500 room prison will be anything to write home about

Only for Cambodians, not foreigners.

Are you not married? You could try and do a GavinMac and plead with the Embassy like he did.

she can stay in a hotel room by herself too many Khmers do but they have to pay for it like $70 - $90 a day I think I read

Yes, Cambodians have the option to choose either Govt Quarantine facility (free), or hotel quarantine (at their own expense, paid directly to hotel). All they need to do is inform MoH officials on arrival which option they prefer.

God the food is so bad (self professed diva). I've been unable to eat 75% of the stuff they give you. It's truly rancid. Time to grease some palms.
