CAMBODIA IS OPENED ON 20 MAY TO INTERNATIONAL TRAVELLERS

Update: 27 May, 2020

Starting May 20, foreigners from Iran, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, and the US who were banned from entering Cambodia since the novel coronavirus broke out will be allowed to visit the Kingdom as normal. They were banned from entering the Kingdom since mid-March.

Its minister Mam Bun Heng said in the announcement that even though all travellers are allowed to enter Cambodia including Cambodians and foreigners, they had to hold certificates confirming that they had no Covid-19.

The certificates are to be released by the health authorities recognized by the governments of each country within 72 hours of arriving in Cambodia.

He said foreigners must have health insurance documentation of at least $50,000 while staying in Cambodia and must adhere to the government’s measures.

“All travellers, including Cambodians and foreigners who arrive in Cambodia must be sent to waiting rooms to test for Covid-19 and wait for a result from the Pasteur Institute. In case one or many travellers are detected with Covid-19, other passengers on the same trip must be quarantined for 14 days.

“If results prove negative, Covid-19 passengers are allowed to be quarantined for 14 days at their homes under the monitoring of local authorities and health officials, and they are required to be tested again on day 13 of the quarantine” he said.
