New Direct Routes Between Cambodia And Japan

Prime Minister Hun Sen says Japan will introduce direct flights to and from Cambodia this year, a move that should boost trade, investment and tourism between the two nations.
The PM told local media that the flights should be introduced over the next six months.

An agreement was also inked last December between Cambodia and Japan that eases visa requirements for passport holders from both countries.
According to Cambodia’s State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA), no memorandum of understanding had been signed on flights, but it is most likely that Japan’s national flag carrier, Japan Airlines, would be the first to fly.
The Ministry of Tourism reported Cambodia received 165,359 Japanese tourists in the first 10 months of 2013 increasing 15.8% from 142,812 during the same period of 2012.
Japan’s direct investment in Cambodia reached about US$47.5 million in 2013, compared to US$328 million in 2012, a US$280 million drop, according to figures provided by the Japanese embassy in Phnom Penh.
Effective 11 December last year, Japanese and Cambodian passport holders were eligible for long-term and multiple-entry visas for a period of one to three years. The application criteria for long-term and multiple-entry visas will be decided independently.
Diplomatic passport holders were also granted an automatic 30-day visa stay in Cambodia and Japan.
