- Cambodia Removes Quarantine Requirement for Unvaccinated or Non-fully Vaccinated Passengers
All passengers unvaccinated or partially vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic are no longer required to undergo the quarantine when entering Cambodia. The removal of quarantine requirement was announced by Cambodia's Ministry of Health in a press release made public on Friday evening (July 08, 2022). However, those travellers must do a rapid test upon arrival in Cambodia. If the test result is negative, they are allowed to proceed to their respective destinations without being quarantined. If they were found positive for COVID-19, for mild cases, they must be in isolation at their respective accommodations or at a place designated by the Ministry of Health; for serious cases, the patients must be treated at hospital at their own expenses. The rapid test service upon arrival at the airport costs US$5 per person for foreign passengers. For those who failed to receive COVID-19 vaccines, both the basic and booster doses, for any reasons besides health problems are encouraged to be inoculated free of charge at the vaccination centres across Cambodia. These latest easing measures took effect from 11 July 2022. -----------------------------------------------------------------------
