Relaxation to ease travel for international tourists



 PHNOM PENH--Foreign visitors will no longer need to show a negative PCR test result 72 hours before arrival in Cambodia.



Prime Minister Hun Sen announced the change on March 17, saying also that quick tests on arrival would not be required. This would facilitate travel for citizens, international travelers and business people.



Speaking at the inauguration of the SOS Children's Village Prey Veng orphanage, he said this would help attract tourists and revitalize the economy during the Covid-19 crisis.



However, the Health Ministry still encourages visitors to do the quick self-test.



Cambodia will also re-launch Visa on Arrival for all travelers by air, land and sea, the ministry added.



All travelers must present a Covid-19 vaccination certificate on arrival in Cambodia. Those who have not been fully vaccinated must still quarantine for 14 days.
