Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has announced to remove the quarantine requirement for all fully vaccinated passengers, both Cambodians and foreigners, entering Cambodia.

To facilitate the country’s reopening, all Cambodians returning from abroad, foreign tourists and investors are not required to be quarantined from three to seven days anymore, said the Premier in a special voice message on Sunday afternoon (November 14).

The decision was made after the vaccination coverage against COVID-19 in Cambodia has reached nearly 88 percent of the total population of 16 million.

But, he continued, they need to get rapid tests at land, maritime and air border gates. If they are found negative for the pandemic, they are free to go anywhere they want across Cambodia, he added. “Fully-vaccinated tourists, locals or foreigners must have confirmed Covid-free certificates (PCR test) within 72 hours and they have to take only rapid tests upon arrival,” he said.

However, those who have not been inoculated have to be in quarantine for 14 days as before in addition to PCR tests, he underlined.

The new directive comes into force from November 15 onward, Samdech Techo Prime Minister said, stressing that those being quarantine at hotel or other areas with negative PCR test results, they are allowed to end their quarantine from November 15. (Source: AKP)
