The Ministry of Tourism said it is working with the relevant bodies to reduce red tape at airports and international border checkpoints.

The ministry said the move aimed to ease transit, especially for international tourists, by removing unnecessary and complicated formalities.

The Ministry of Tourism said on Sunday that it would collaborate with the Ministries of Interior and Economy and Finance regarding the changes.

International tourists will be required to fill out only one departure-arrival and visa application form in Khmer, English and Chinese under the new procedures, the Ministry of Tourism said.

They will not need to fill out another form on their return.

Cambodians with e-passports working abroad will not be required to fill out the new form, it added.

“Tourists driving their vehicles into Cambodia can fill out a summary declaration form for temporary entry and exit at international border checkpoints,” the ministry said.

Chuk Chumno, the director of the ministry’s Department of Tourism Product Development, said the move was aimed at making transit easier for tourists and turn Cambodia into a more attractive place to visit.
