Cambodia is reopening its borders – this is a boost to its tourism industry, which is an important contributor to the economy. Cambodia is now fully open to foreign travelers although there are still quarantine requirements for travelers who are not fully vaccinated.
Fully vaccinated travelers are not required to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test and will only need to show their proof of vaccination (a WHO-recognized vaccine regiment).
Unvaccinated travelers, however, must take a PCR test for COVID-19 at least 72 hours before arriving in Cambodia. Upon arrival, they must undergo seven days of quarantine at a government hotel. The traveler will do another COVID-19 test on the first day before entering quarantine, before doing a final test on day seven.
If the unvaccinated traveler has not pre-booked a hotel, they must demonstrate to have at least US$2,000 in cash (per traveler).
Foreign travelers will need medical insurance that covers treatment for COVID-19 at a minimum of US$50,000. The insurance must cover a range of treatments, such as quarantine if found positive and hospitalization.
Cambodia has reopened its visa on arrival service, which cost US$35 for a maximum stay of 30 days. Some nationalities will need to make advance arrangements and apply online.
