UK FCO Advise All UK Citizens Abroad to Return Home

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

With airlines, airports and transit routes effectively closed now, I'm guessing it would be near impossible to get home even if anyone wanted to.

So why isn't the British Embassy starting to collect data about those of us who, for whatever reason, are here to stay?

Wouldn't some sort of online register be a good idea so they know exactly who's here, and who to contact back in the UK in the event of ....well, death?

I'm sure the British government have enough to do back home than worry about a bunch of expats halfway around the world who've kissed goodbye to the motherland anyway, but there is still a British Embassy here, who's job it is to deal with situations such as this and at least offer us some sort of comfort if nothing else.

Having some sort of voluntary online database of who's stuck here, who's here of their own accord and who wants to go home but can't might be a start.

Looking on the FCO website it may as well say "Good luck everybody. You're gonna need it! Ta-ra!"...
