Police Background Check Procedures

Applications must be made in person or by an authorized third party.
The Embassy is unable to assistcitizens in obtaining a police clearance certificate from Cambodian authorities.

Risk

Sovereign risk

Cambodia’s sovereign risk remains B-rated. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the ratio of total external debt to GDP to improve, owing to strong economic growth and further inflows of foreign aid.

Banking sector risk

Credit growth is accelerating again, but its current pace remains well below the extremely fast rates seen in 2007-08. The fairly rapid rate of growth is never‘theless creating concerns about asset quality and the stability of the banking sector. The National Bank of Cambodia (the central bank) has made only limited progress on implementing IMF-recommended reforms to governance, and its supervisory capabilities are poor.

Political risk

Political stability has improved since the ruling Cambodian People’s Party and the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party struck quasi power-sharing agreements in the latter half of 2014. The completion of electoral reform in March 2015, which was a key component of the first political deal struck by the parties in July 2014, bodes well for the durability of their rapprochement.

Economic structure risk

The economy’s overdependence on garment exports to the US and EU makes it vulnerable to any deterioration in trade relations with Western countries. In addition, the economy’s high level of dollarisation will continue to put a huge constraint on the effectiveness of monetary policy.

Travel Risk

Security

The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The Government of Canada takes the safety and security of Canadians abroad very seriously and provides credible and timely information in its Travel Advice. In the event of a crisis situation that requires evacuation, the Government of Canada’s policy is to provide safe transportation to the closest safe location. The Government of Canada will assist you in leaving a country or a region as a last resort, when all means of commercial or personal transportation have been exhausted. This service is provided on a cost-recovery basis. Onward travel is at your personal expense. Situations vary from one location to another, and there may be constraints on government resources that will limit the ability of the Government of Canada to provide assistance, particularly in countries or regions where the potential for violent conflict or political instability is high.

Preah Vihear temple area and surrounding border region (see Advisory)

There have been a series of clashes between Cambodia and Thailand over a border dispute in this region, including exchanges of gunfire and artillery that resulted in numerous fatalities and the evacuation of civilians. The presence of landmines has been reported. The situation could deteriorate without warning. Exercise a high level of caution if travelling to any area along the Cambodian-Thai border.

Crime

Street crime targeting foreigners, including pick-pocketing, is common in urban areas, including Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, even during daylight hours. Armed assaults also occur, especially along the riverfront in Phnom Penh and on isolated beaches in Sihanoukville. Canadians have been injured in the course of assaults and armed robberies. Thieves, sometimes on motorcycles, grab bags and other valuables (including passports) from pedestrians, motorcycle drivers and motorcycle passengers. Personal belongings have been stolen from locked rooms, particularly in low-cost accommodations. Items have been removed from luggage stored in the luggage compartments of buses, especially on the journey between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

Banditry continues, largely at night, in rural areas and on routes between Snoul, Kratie and Stung Treng in the northeastern provinces. Foreigners have encountered difficulties with ill-disciplined police and military personnel. Exercise a high degree of caution at all times, avoid travelling alone, especially at night, and ensure personal belongings and passports and other travel documents are secure at all times. Firearm ownership is high, and guns are often used in cases of robbery and personal dispute or disagreement, including those involving foreigners.

Women’s safety

Sexual assaults have been reported. Consult our publication entitled Her own way – a woman’s safe-travel guide for travel safety information for Canadian women.

Scams

Scams targeting tourists occur. Card games are often involved. Some travellers have been taken to an automated banking machine and forced to withdraw money.

Travellers have been the victim of scams and extortion at border crossings. Some have reported that border officials demanded they pay extra charges before allowing entry into Cambodia. In other cases, travellers were taken by strangers to isolated areas for extended periods of time and were intimidated and pressed for payment. Carefully consider accepting assistance from individuals offering to help with documentation or transportation.

Demonstrations

Political and labour protests took place frequently from July 2013 to January 2014, and violent clashes during these demonstrations resulted in deaths and injuries. Although an agreement was reached between the ruling and opposition parties in July 2014, protests relating to ongoing labour disputes may still occur and have the potential to suddenly turn violent. Avoid large gatherings and demonstrations, monitor local media and follow the advice of local authorities.

Terrorism

In recent years, Cambodian authorities have averted a number of attempted bomb plots. On September 13, 2013, explosive devices were found in Phnom Penh, near the National Assembly Building and near Freedom Park.

Transportation

Extremely poor road conditions, local disregard for traffic laws and drunk drivers result in frequent accidents. Travel by road should be undertaken in daylight hours, by either scheduled bus or cars travelling in convoy. Boats are often overcrowded, lack adequate safety equipment and are susceptible to robbery by armed gangs. Boat owners accept no liability for accidents. Avoid travelling by train due to poor track maintenance.

With the exception of flights between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, internal air service can be unpredictable, and flights may be cancelled on short notice.

See Transportation Safety in order to verify if national airlines meet safety standards.

Travel from Laos should be undertaken by air only. The Laotian side of the border is often closed to international travellers. For travel to Laos from Cambodia, you must obtain the relevant visa prior to arrival at the border.

Travel by motorcycle

Motorcycles are a common means of transportation in urban areas. Motorcycle accidents kill or maim several Canadians each year. Driving or riding on motorcycles in Cambodia is dangerous and should be avoided, even by experienced motorcyclists.

Passports are often requested as a guarantee when renting motorcycles. Unscrupulous owners have followed renters and taken the motorcycle by removing the lock and chain when the vehicle was parked, leaving the traveller without a motorcycle or passport. You should purchase your own locks and chains.

Canadian passports may not be used as collateral (as assurance for debts, rental of motorcycles, etc.). If your passport is inaccessible or stolen as a result of such misuse, you may be subject to investigation by Passport Canada and may receive limited passport services.

General safety information

Tourist facilities are well developed in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, but limited elsewhere.

Canadians are encouraged to register with the Embassy of Australia in Phnom Penh in order to receive the latest information on situations and events that could affect your safety.

Landmines

Cambodia remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world. Landmines can be found in rural areas, especially in the provinces of Banteay Meanchey, Siem Reap (except in the town of Siem Reap and the Angkor temples, which are safe), Battambang, Kampong Thom and Pursat. The border area with Thailand is especially dangerous. Do not walk in forested areas or in dry rice paddies without a local guide. Areas around small bridges or secondary roads are dangerous. Do not visit outlying temples, particularly in the areas of Phnom Kulen and the River of a Thousand Lingas, as they are heavily mined. Strictly observe warning signs and do not handle any unknown object.

Drugs

Illicit drug use has led to the death of several Canadians in Cambodia. For more information on how to avoid difficult and dangerous situations related to illegal drugs, consult Alcohol, Drugs and Travel.

Piracy

Pirate attacks occur in coastal waters and, in some cases, farther out at sea. Mariners should take appropriate precautions. For additional information, consult the Live Piracy Report published by the International Maritime Bureau.
