The Cambodian government has made the country an even more appealing destination for international visitors, whether tourists or business people, as the quarantine period for unvaccinated travellers has been reduced to 7 days from 14 days.
The news was confirmed on April 21st 2022 by Health Minister Mam Bunheng: “Travellers entering Cambodia by land borders must undergo two rapid tests – one on the first day before entering the quarantine centre and the other on the seventh day to end their quarantine.
For those entering the country by air, they must take a rapid test on the seventh day to end their quarantine,” he said.
These measures are in effect immediately it was reported in regional and local news.
In addition, COVID-19 vaccines are to be made available to unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated Cambodian travellers on the seventh day when they are allowed to leave quarantine facilities.
Following a relatively unrestricted Cambodian New Year last week, Prime Minister Hun Sen had this week confirmed ten days to measure the COVID-19 situation are needed before considering lifting the mask mandate in the country.
The Kingdom has administered:
- One dose of COVID-19 vaccine to 14.86 million people, or 92.9 per cent of the population.
- 14.12 million (88.3 per cent) have been fully vaccinated with two vaccinations.
