Entry Restrictions (clarification)

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.

Entry Restrictions (clarification)

Post by Mr. Yuck »

Ive read the restrictions. Taken from IATA

“ Passengers arriving from France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Spain or USA are not allowed to enter Cambodia.”

This reads to me if you are coming from these places not necessarily a passport holder of these nations. Im American but will be coming from Afghanistan. Have read on the forum here someone said they are blocking passport holders from these places. Perhaps the poster didn’t read the restriction correctly? What do you all think? Will I be able to get in?

Don't know for sure but I doubt you will get in. Travel history seems to play little part, it is the passport that matters. Good luck.

from means from the country the fucking plane left from...it has nothing to do with the passport holder unless they see they have been in one of those countries recently.
If you have not been in the USA for 6 months and are flying in from Afghanistan....you should be allowed in.
of course FROM may be a mistranslation...
People should be staying put...
people should of been paying attention to the shit hitting the fan around the globe..
Although, Afghanistan might not be a place to self quarantine...

How do you plan to get to Cambodia? What airline and routing and when?

Fly. Whatever airlines are still operating when I am able to fly. A day or two after my passport arrives. Fucking awful here with no passport. Thanks for info fellas.

Please continue to update if you learn of anything new.

Greetings, please excuse that this is my first post. Time constraints are coming more into play, and I'm in the same boat as the OP. This is how I read it ^^ however, there are several posts about it being a ban for U.S. passport holders. I'm currently in VN and haven't been back to the U.S. for years. Does anyone know from experience if the "from" means "traveling from" or "citizens of." Any insights are much appreciated.

The interpretation and enforcement is inconsistent. Some are being granted entry based on their travel history, many are being denied entry based purely on their passport.

It's Cambodia. Using logic to determine how they will interpret these rules could prove illogical

I'm planning on flying Sydney/Singapore/Phnom Penh 1st June, Qantas has flights in June so hopefully Singapore opens for transfers, just need to work out how to get the test done in Australia.
Then worry about being in isolation for 14days
I'm standing up, so I must be straight
