Thailand, Cambodia apply visa waivers to mark 60th anniversary of bilateral ties

 
SA KAEO, Dec 16 (MCOT online news)
– Thailand and Cambodia on Thursday introduced mutual visa exemptions
at some border crossings to mark the 60th anniversary of their
bilateral relations and will push ahead for a plan to allow daily entry
at three border passes, extending from only four days a week currently
to seven days.
Sa Kaeo governor Sanit
Naksuksri and Banteay Meanchey governor Oung Ouen jointly presided over
the ceremony to launch visa-free entry between the two countries at the
Thai-Cambodian friendship bridge, the permanent Baan Klong Luek border
crossing in Aranyaprathet district in the eastern province of Sa Kaeo
as a New Year gift for Thais and Cambodians.
Mr Sanit said Thailand and
Cambodia agreed with the mutual visa exemption for Thais and Cambodians
holding passports for two-week stays.

The visa waiver, applied from Dec 16, will help promote tourism and mutual trade.
Sa Kaeo is gearing up
developing relationships at the local level by extending days and time
for three border checkpoints, Tha Phraya, Nong Prue and Baan Khaodin
all in the province’s three districts from four days from 9am to 4 pm
to everyday from 9am to 5 pm, starting Jan 1, 2011.
The issue will be discussed further at a meeting between officials of the two countries on Dec 20 in Sa Kaeo.
