Cambodia eases entry rules for neighbours
Vietnamese, Lao and Thai nationals holding travel warrants will now be allowed to stay in Cambodia for one week and travel within its three provinces, reported Vietnam News Agency.
The move is part of Cambodian government’s plan to lure more foreign visitors and investors to the Indochina country, VNA quoted Cambodia Minister of Tourism Chan Thon as saying.
Accordingly, Vietnamese, Thai and Lao people holding passports are permitted to stay in Cambodia for one month and take legal means of transportation along with them.
Cambodia also plans to open new international border gates with Vietnam , Laos and Thailand to draw more tourists from these neighbouring countries, Minister Chan Thon said.
In 2008, Cambodia welcomed 210,000 Vietnamese visitors, 109,000 Thai visitors and nearly 61,000 Lao tourists, according to its Tourism Ministry.
