Traveling in Times of Coronavirus

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Nah. I think immigration offices just got fed up with scenes like this across the country.

Japan cancels visas for 11 countries
Friday, March 27, 9:55
The Japanese government decided on Friday to invalidate visas issued in 11 countries in Southeast Asia, Middle East and Africa due to the coronavirus pandemic.

About 750,000 visas issued by Japanese embassies in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Israel, Qatar, Bahrain, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo will no longer be valid from Saturday.

The government has already invalidated visas issued in 40 countries, including China, South Korea, Iran, Egypt and most European nations.

The cancellation of visas issued in China and South Korea was originally set to continue until the end of March, but the government has decided to extend the policy until the end of April.

USA
For information, this was posted on Kampot Noticeboard yesterday. Up to you to check the details.
If you are looking to get back to the USA, the time is now. According to the U.S. Embassy, only 3 airlines are operating and after 11 April, only two. Obviously, this could change at any time.

BREAKING NEWS:
Coronavirus: Foreign Office links up with airlines to fly stranded Britons home
7 minutes ago
Tens of thousands of Britons stranded abroad by the coronavirus pandemic will be flown home under a new arrangement between the government and airlines.

British Airways, Virgin, EasyJet, Jet2 and Titan are among airlines that have agreed to fly Britons back to the UK.

The government has also pledged £75m to charter special flights to bring home UK nationals from countries where commercial flights are unavailable.

The number of people who have died with the virus in the UK has reached 1,408.

Speaking at the government's daily coronavirus briefing, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said an "unprecedented" number of UK travellers were trying to get home.

"We are talking about hundreds of thousands of people travelling around the world," he said.

Mr Raab added: "Hundreds of thousands have already done so, but many travellers haven't yet managed to get back home - from young backpackers to retired couples on cruises."

Under the new arrangement, airlines would be responsible for getting stranded passengers home where commercial routes remain an option.

"That means offering alternative flights at little to no cost where routes have been cancelled, and it means allowing passengers to change tickets - including between carriers," he said.

"So for those still in those countries where commercial options are still available: don't wait. Don't run the risk of getting stranded. The airlines are standing by to help you - please book your tickets as soon as possible."
