Cambodia has reduced the required quarantine period from two weeks to one for arriving travellers who are not fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, acting after recording consistently low numbers of new infections in recent days. The Health Ministry also said that travellers arriving by air who have not been fully vaccinated must take a rapid antigen test on the last day of their quarantine.
Arrivals by land — mostly Cambodian workers in neighbouring countries — are required to take rapid antigen tests on arrival as well as on the last day of quarantine. The country had already opened its borders to fully vaccinated travellers on November 15 in an effort to revitalise its tourism-reliant economy.
The changes announced come about a month after another easing of pandemic-related restrictions for visitors from abroad, including the dropping of mandatory Covid-19 tests for travellers who have been vaccinated. Visas on arrival were also restored last month
