Over the last two years, the Cambodian government has invested heavily in infrastructure projects to improve the visitor experience
Today, the Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia announced that the Kingdom has fully reopened its borders to full vaccinated visitors. Quarantine periods and testing requirements will not be necessary for those who can provide proof of vaccination. They can also obtain visas upon their arrival via land, air, or sea, as reported by PR Newswire.
The challenge is to disseminate these new advances around the world so that travellers are not inconvenienced.
One example is the requirement for arriving passengers to have a USD50,000 insurance policy, which was dropped in November of last year.
Travellers who approach a Cambodian embassy overseas to obtain a visa, on the other hand, must provide the insurance policy, which is also a requirement at check-in counters.
Over the last two years, the Cambodian government has invested heavily in infrastructure projects to improve the visitor experience, including the development of dozens of beach resorts, road restoration, and the addition of bike lanes around popular tourist attractions like the Angkor Wat temple complex, which is one of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country.
According to TravelPulse.com, the country has eight more potential cultural sites that could be nominated for UNESCO World Heritage status in the future.
The Ministry of Health, however, still encourages tourists to do rapid tests on their own. Apart from this, travelers that have not been vaccinated have to undergo a 14-day quarantine period at a specialised location designed by the ministry.
Due to the pandemic, Cambodia’s tourism industry plummeted by more than 80%. It was, however, proactive in its recovery efforts, establishing the Tourism Promotion and Recovery Plan in particular.
The Kingdom also has great aspirations for the future, with Siem Reap Province, Kep Province, and Mondulkiri Province designated as “The Paradise of Eco-tourism” in its Tourism Master Development Plans for 2035.
Nearly 90 percent of Cambodia’s population has been vaccinated as of February 2022.
