e-Arrival Card app for foreigners coming to Cambodia to be launched in 2024

https://www.khmertimeskh.com/501406963/ ... d-in-2024/
Cambodia is to launch a trial “e-Arrival Card” scheme for travellers to The Kingdom, starting in 2024, which will replace the plethora of paper forms that are currently required on arrival.

According to an announcement yesterday, the Royal Government of Cambodia has agreed in principle to test the electronic system of receipts into the Kingdom of Cambodia prior to arrival to make it easier for foreign travelers and Cambodian citizens to complete the immigration formalities and health procedures in one form.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The electronic form will be available either at www.arrival.gov.kh or via the Cambodia e-Arrival (CeA) app available in the App Store and Play Store on mobile phones or other electronic devices, starting from January 1st.

During the pilot phase, passengers may have the option of filling out an electronic form or filling out an immigration, customs and health information form in paper form.

The official implementation will start from July 1, 2024, requiring all passengers to fill out the information in the electronic form as defined above.

Another move to force people to buy new phones all the time as more merchants/banks/immigration/ etc etc move to phone apps, the more storage you need to handle all these new apps>
plus how many times have apps not worked ??

How many of us have perfectly good phones, but cant use them cause the new apps wont load on them??

so no app on the phone...denied entry?

I don't want to pee on your parade but it will have been easier to simply scrap it, like Vietnam did 5 years ago and Thailand more recently.

Just ran thru it for Cambodian:
still need a phone to scan ur passport and a phone for ur qr code OR a printer.

what a hassle
it is in no way easier than filing this shit out on the plane.

thailand just made it easy to leave as well ( at least at 1 airport)

I imagine that when arrival cards were introduced you were complaining ‘what? No pen, no entry?’

Seriously, some people just love to find issue. This is clearly an improvement to process. I hate having to fill out the same information on multiple forms.
Such a pain for tourists, visa application, customs and immigration form all asking for pretty much the same info - with no space available on the form to complete accurately. Then handing the forms in - especially the customs form and nobody even looking at it.
