People with exemption visas to travel to New Zealand have been prevented from boarding a Malaysia Airlines flight from Cambodia, after the airline refused to accept their paperwork.

A New Zealander and her Argentinian partner were among those unable to fly home from Phnom Penh last Friday.

And a pregnant New Zealand woman who came home in March is now scared her partner, who is still in Cambodia, will be denied boarding when he attempts the same route next week.
