Flight options to Australia are becoming increasingly scarce. If you are an Australian in Cambodia seeking to get home, you should start to prepare yourself for the possibility you may not be able to get out for a while. The Australian Government is not currently planning any charter flights.
There are still some commercial flights, but details change from day to day, often at very short notice. Some of these flights are also very expensive.
Unless you can be sure that the flight is viable, before paying for tickets you should consider whether to proceed or save your money, in case you will need it on things such as food and accommodation over the medium to longer term in Cambodia.
As part of good planning, you should prepare for the worst case possibility of an extended stay. You should think now about what you, your family or travelling companions will need. Where will you stay? How can family and friends contact you? From where are the best places to get food, water and medicine? Do you have enough cash for every day essential items?
Please email the embassy ([email protected]) with your name, location, contact details and the details of anyone travelling with you. Follow our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) for regular updates. We are here in Cambodia too and we are all in this together.
