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.

be happy with that if it went both ways, e.g. 30 days free visa on arrival similar to Thailand.

It's expensive getting to the lucky country if you come from a poor country

'We will be ready': The date Aussies could be allowed to travel overseas

Overseas travel could be just around the corner for Australians as coronavirus restrictions continue easing to allow freedoms that haven’t been afforded in months.

A timetable proposed by the Tourism Restart Taskforce at its last meeting on May 22 indicated that people could be permitted to travel between Australia and New Zealand within weeks.

The industry group, which advises the government on domestic and international travel, has recommended that all domestic travel recommence by July.

From July 1, it suggested travel between Australia and New Zealand and the Pacific restart, while September 10 was earmarked for potential travel to countries deemed “safe”.

The timetable has yet to be officially signed off, and if borders do proceed opening up, it needs to be with additional health and hygiene protocols in place, according to John Hart, the chair of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Tourism.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

It's going to be such fun travelling around. Can't smoke anywhere, can't get drunk anywhere, can't talk to anyone within 20ft, hand washing police everywhere...

Sorry Doc :D to disappoint you ^^^ none of that is correct.
and pubs are open on Monday.

Both Oz and NZ are getting back to normal far earlier than most because our measures were so successful (and never contained any of those measures as you described above ^^^)

PS - Are you also against recommendations (only) for regular handwashing??

Do you think there is a slight chance that Oz and Nz were hit much less than other “western” countries because they are in the southern hemisphere and respiratory diseases usually make a hit in winter?

PS: i’ve been washing hands often before it was a cool thing to do. But locking down economy has nothing to do with it.
