Businesses in capital told to get travel permit amid lockdown through One Window Service

The Phnom Penh Municipal Administration has issued guidelines on how to get travel permission for priority groups during the lockdown of Phnom Penh, directing private institutions to apply through the municipality's One Window Service and limit their staff to a mere two per cent.

In a decision dated April 18, Municipal governor Khuong Sreng said this is to guarantee the normality of people’s lives amid the lockdown in line with the government’s directive, which states that only priority groups are exempted from the measure.

Each institution is required to prepare a list of staff or workers and their business locations.

“Attach a document certifying that the number of staff members or workers requesting the permit accounts for no more than two per cent of the entire workforce,” he said.

He said each institution could apply for the permit from the One Window Service office at the capital's 14 districts where their businesses are located.

The municipality has also set up a Telegram group to facilitate the process, with the notification of approval to be announced through the media and on the municipality's Facebook page and that of the 14 district administrations.
