The Thai government will waiver re-entry visas for Cambodian workers from April 5 to April 30. This is to facilitate their return after crossing the Cambodia-Thai border to visit their families for Khmer New Year (April 14-16).
This was announced by the Cambodian Embassy in Thailand on Friday (Feb. 22).
“The Cambodian Ambassador in Thailand wants to inform the public, especially Cambodian workers who live and work legally in Thailand, that the government of Thailand agreed to help Cambodian workers who wish to celebrate the upcoming Khmer New Year at home by waiving the need of a re-entry visa for nearly a month.”
The statement added that, until now, workers who work and live in Thailand must request a re-entry visa if they wish to return after crossing over to Cambodia. The migration laws of Thailand state that, normally, a single-entry visa costs 1,000 baht and a multiple-entry visa 3,800 baht in fees.
