Cambodia drops all Covid-19 entry requirements

As of July, 2022, Cambodia has dropped Covid-19 vaccination and quarantine requirements for travelers (with one caveat). There are still quarantine requirements for unvaccinated travelers who test positive on arrival, although they have been relaxed from previous quarantine requirements. Most land borders have now been re-opened.

Vaccinated travelers

Those who are fully vaccinated (two doses of a vaccine, or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) do not need to take a Covid-19 test on arrival. You will need to present proof of Covid vaccination, in the form of a card of certificate on arrival.

Unvaccinated travelers

Instead of a mandatory quarantine on arrival, unvaccinated travelers and those who have had only one dose of vaccine will need to take a $5 rapid test on arrival.

Those who are positive and showing mild symptoms have the opportunity to self-quarantine at a private residence (this will probably only be possible for expats and residents), and others who test positive can quarantine at a government-approved hotel at their own expense.

Travelers who test positive and show more serious symptoms will need to quarantine at an approved hospital at their own expense (and this can get expensive, with a minimum cost of $235/day, so consider getting insurance before you arrive — get a free no-commitment quote).

What does this mean for tourists? It would be advisable to take a few Covid tests before boarding the plane, and wear a mask on the plane, as you don’t want to risk testing positive on arrival and having to pay for an expensive quarantine hotel.

    I am planing to retire in Cambodia and Kampot is my favorite so far. I am interested in all news.

    Really happy to see visa on arrival back. Originally had wanted to move back to live and get retirement extension of stay in March 2022 but the VOA was not offered and they seemed to only extend the tourist visas for retirement EOS a short while. Now I return to Cambodia to live after a year of living in Mexico. Really happy to be returning, picking up life again in Cambodia seeing some retired friends there, some khmer friends, and traveling in ASEAN. Malaysia open, Vietnam open. Laos open.

      Hello, I hope you don’t mind me asking few questions in regards Cambodia visa. If I want to spend 2-3 months there which visa should I get? Can you extend the one month visa for 2-3 months??? Thanks

    Be prepared for constant corruption & people changing the goalposts after an agreement is settled. Don’t expect the locals to honner their word as you would expect in Europe .
