QUARANTINE REQUIREMENT LIFTED FOR UNVACCINATED TRAVELERS ENTERING CAMBODIA

From 11 July 2022, unvaccinated or non-fully vaccinated travelers entering Cambodia by all means of transport via all international border checkpoints will no longer be required to undertake the mandatory quarantine. The relaxation of the restriction is as follows:
  1. Fully vaccinated travelers are only required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (vaccination card/certificate). This has been implemented since 17 March 2022.
  2. Unvaccinated or non-fully vaccinated travelers are required to take a COVID-19 Rapid Test upon their arrival:
  • Negative result: Travelers can continue their trip throughout the country
  • Positive result: (i) In case of mild symptoms, travelers are required to self-isolate and take treatment in their residence. (ii) Travelers with serious symptoms need to receive treatment at designated facilities. Foreign patients need to assume the treatment expenses. 
  • All non-vaccinated travelers (both Cambodians and foreigners) are encouraged to get COVID-19 vaccination at available sites across the country free of charge. 
  1. Despite the above relaxation of the quarantine requirement, the Royal Government of Cambodia still encourages all travelers to diligently follow the "3 Do's 3 Don'ts" Health Measure and regularly monitor their health. 
For further details, please refer to the official announcement of the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia.   

Cambodia is one of the countries with a high COVID-19 vaccination rate. The country's achievement in controlling the outbreak of COVID-19 enabled the successful organization of the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2022 in Preah Sihanouk Province in physical format: the 1st in-person gathering of tourism players and policymakers in the region since the announcement of the pandemic.

Based on the vaccination strategy as the key to fully restarting the country's socio-economic activities, Cambodia has gradually removed travel restrictions with responsibility. Today's relaxation marks another remarkable progress of returning to a pre-pandemic state.

UNWTO appreciates the decision of the Government led by H.E. Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN SEN, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic ─ resulting in the stability of the macro-economy and involvement and support from Cambodian people.
