Notice on the Reopening for Visit by Vaccinated Tourists

The Ministry of Tourism has the honor to inform the public and international tourists that, with the permission granted by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Cambodia will be reopening to international visitors beginning with Preah Sihanouk City and Koh Rong City of Preah Sihanouk province, and Dara Sakor region in Koh Kong province from 30 November 2021 onward. This will be followed by the reopening of Siem Reap province in January 2022. The reopening is being implemented within the framework of vaccinated tourism program which allows international visitors to enjoy a quarantine-free stay and visit in Safe and Green Destinations for up to 5 days.

Tourists visiting under this program will be required to submit themselves to rapid Covid-19 antigen test only upon arrival at the airport. Even if the test result turns up positive, the visitors will still enjoy free movement within the designated Safe and Green Destinations, where all tourism business and service establishments have been inspected in advance to ensure their compliance with the standard operation procedures (SOP) and tourism safety measures.

Foreign tourists visiting under this program can apply for tourism visa type T at Cambodian Embassy or Consular Office in their respective countries. Alternatively, they can also apply for E-Visa. Their visit falls under the Covid-19 vaccinated tourism package category or is part of family or small groups of high-end visitors who have been injected with adequate doses of vaccine against Covid.19.

To meet the requirements of this reopening program, foreign visitors shall attach the following documents when applying for Cambodian visa:

  • Certificate confirming injection of adequate doses of vaccine against Covid-19,
  • Address of booked and paid-for accommodation in Safe and Green Destinations,
  • Health insurance for travel to Cambodia, including insurance for any eventual Covid-19 treatment, and insurance to reimburse any eventual cancelation of the already booked tourism services in Cambodia,
  • Plane ticket,
  • A ‘no Covid-19 infection’ certificate issued 72 hours prior to the scheduled departure, and
  • History of travel during the 14-day period prior to departing to Cambodia.

Visitors coming under this program will be required to submit themselves for PCR test – with the purpose to ensure that they are Covid-19 negative – one (1) day before leaving the designated Safe and Green Destinations to travel to other areas in the country, or to leave Cambodia altogether.
