He is speculating. The current order expires Jan 25th. It is not yet known if there will be a new order.

 

whether Cambodia is nice to visit is subjective, depends on your interests.

didnt you go to cambodia a few months ago?  how was economy .  ?  shuttered down shops?  did it feel unsafe due to financial insecurity?

They don't necessarily give lead time.

Can announce extension after Jan 25.

Up to them.

It will be extended. Chill

I went to Cambodia last month. (and used to spend about 1/4 of my time there pre-COVID). Places geared mainly to foreigners had pretty much closed down (though that may gradually reverse over the coming year). Cambodian establishments were open as normal and Cambodian life is pretty normal these days.

 

No more unsafe than pre-COVID but Cambodia is never all that safe - one must always take theft precautions.

 

This is probably a great time to visit Angkor Wat due to much less crowding. But you would nto want to spend more than 2 weeks for that purpose.

 

The offshore islands are nice, if beaches are your thing.

 

The Chinese destroyed Sihanoukville years ago, avoid it except as a staging ground for visiting islands.

 

 

Thanks for the update. I was thinking of visiting thee in early March. No quarantine for vaccinated visitors?

His basis for saying it had gone on for two years is flawed since the pandemic has gone on for two years. Duh. They’ll typically say anything to scare foreigners and thus alleviate workload. Don’t take it personally. 

Friend was saying it is opening up. Would personally give PP a wide berth (not for me, YMMV), but as Sheryl says, great time to explore Angkor Wat…. minus 17 million babbling Chinese.

Siem Reap chilled place.

I dont predict anything because this goverment is not reliable at all.Now more and more countries lower the gards means no quarantene for fully vaccinated.That can also mean that folks dont have a legimit reason for NOT going back to their country of origin.

except covid is ravishing us and europe. big time right now.  that is excuse enuf to stay put here  . but granted thais probably dont care how bad covid is in my home country...................so in conclusion no one not even immigration knows if the covid extensions will go on.  we wait for some announcement on jan 24 i guess

I know someone whose covid extension is ending early Feb. The local immigration told him that he could extend it again on Jan 24th, which would allow extra time. Don't know if that will help you.

I've been following a Facebook Cambodia visa group and in the last week there are reports of foreigners (and locals) who test positive for omicron being kept in big run-down concentration camps.  Seriously - they are converted stadiums with no privacy, no plumbing, inedible food, no extra clothing or electricity, and you are held there potentially for weeks until you get 2 negative PCR tests.  By contrast, testing positive for covid besides omicron and you can quarantine at a residence or regular government hospital.

Think carefully about entering Cambodia until they sort out this hysteria.

Your immigration office is talking rubbish.

Which office.

Covid extensions will continue after Jan 25.

 

Wasn't this discussion at the meeting  today?  Didn't they just extend the emergency  decree?

I haven't seen it. So can't comment. 

You would have hoped official announcement by Friday.

Also thinking that emergency decree is a separate gig to covid extensions. 

Anyway hopefully announced soon.

No it feels unsafe because it always was. A dump compared to Thailand. A place where all those deported from Thailand later end up. Only the highest quality of foreigners hang and or hideout.

True.

Of course eventually CE will end.

Hopefully some land borders will be open at that point.

You would hope that whenever that is due the government will be screaming from the rooftops that covid extensions are ending. 

Make suitable plans. 

That's not now.
