Cambodian travel restrictions

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.

PS. I don't know why I can't tag anyone properly.
No work permit, had to apply for a new E-type Visa from the Cambodian Embassy in London back in July, then got a 12 month EB EOS when I arrived.

@Doc67 no choice of hotel, cannot pre-book, luck of the draw

I don't want to be rude GK, but Cambodia is not issuing tourist visas at the present time. I assume that means that they do not want any foreign tourists at the present time, so you are absolutely correct that (foreign) tourists are not welcome.
Doesn't matter what I think about that, or what you think about that, that is the case at the present time.

Let's hope that we can travel again without quarantine measures once there are tests and vaccinations in place next year.

You can already travel to many countries without quarantine, for example from the UK you enter Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Spain, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Guyana, Italy, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Benin, Ghana, Senegal, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Gambia and perhaps a few others.

Yes, but if you want to come back to Cambodia, or return to the UK or Australia for that matter, you will have to do 14-days quarantine when you return. Sure you can travel, but not for fun. I'll do it if I have to, but I'd rather wait.
My point to the OP was that Cambodia is actively discouraging tourists right now, and that if you don't NEED to get to Cambodia right now, then it's probably best to wait a while.

The Embasy in Australia is not giving any visa at the moment and as of November 27th all applications must have a Validation certificate on payment guarantee
(I was told this last Friday by embassy staff)

Yes, I understand that. But, my point is that you can just go somewhere else. Cambodia at least set up a process to let some people in, the only one among Southeast Asia countries, but I guess they got panicky over a handful of "cases". Now, there's all this debate in the region about opening, quarantine, vaccines, blah blah blah, but meanwhile many other countries have opened or are in the process of opening, which begs the question: "Why are some countries able to open, while others are not?"

I'd like to stay in Southeast Asia but am starting to look at the Central and South American countries that are open. Es hora de empezar a aprender español.

So, if all of ASEAN wants to remain closed, even to their neighbors, that's fine with me.
