Cambodia has asked for Vietnam’s coordination to ensure uninterrupted cross-border transport of goods amid the COVID-19 epidemic.
In a letter sent to the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the entry of Vietnamese and Cambodian citizens into Vietnam will be suspended from 23:59 on March 20 to avoid inconvenience related to medical quarantine requirements.
However, diplomatic and official passport holders of the two countries will not be subject to the restriction, it said.
The Cambodian side also asked local authorities of the two nations to work together in order to accelerate the repatriation of all Cambodian citizens (if any) who are put under medical quarantine in Vietnam.
