It was announced yesterday March 17, 2022, fully vaccinated travelers – including citizens from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdomcan now enter Cambodia without any Covid testing requirements. They can just enter test-free and quarantine-free.

Having dropped the quarantine requirements – for visitors that are fully vaccinated – towards the end of last year (November, 2021), Cambodia has now made entry for those that have received their full vaccination extremely simple.

So, What Were Travelers Previously Required To Do In Order To Enter Cambodia?

Up until yesterday (17 March), visitors – classified as fully vaccinated – who wanted to visit Cambodia were required to:

  • take a Covid-19 PCR test no more than 72 hours before your departure
  • undergo a Covid-19 rapid test (ATK) upon arrival into the country
Tourists in Cambodia
  • obtain a visa prior to your arrival – by applying online for an E-visa
  • purchase health insurance which covers the cost of Covid-19 medical expenses.

What Are The New Entry Requirements For Fully Vaccinated Travelers Wanting To Visit Cambodia?

Following yesterday’s announcement by the country’s Ministry of Health – that fully vaccinated travelers are no longer required to undergo any testing before, or after, their arrival into Cambodia – there are in fact no other entry requirements for such visitors other than:

  • showing proof on entry that you have received your full vaccination against Covid-19.
Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate

The Cambodian Ministry of Health has, however, encouraged travelers to take a self-ATK test prior to their departure to the country as a precautionary measure.

Cambodia Reinstates Their Visa on Arrival (VoA) Scheme

Travelers can also – once again – obtain a visa on arrival (VoA), which for many months had been suspended due to the country’s ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

It is now possible to be granted this visa whether you are arriving into the country by air, land or water.

You can still also obtain a visa prior to your arrival – by applying online using Cambodia’s E-visa website. The cost for both the visa on arrival – and E-visa – is US$30 – however – there is an additional processing fee of US$6 if you purchase an E-visa online.

The city of Siem Reap, Cambodia

Both visas – which are for single entry only – allow visitors to stay in the country for up to 30 days, with it possible to extend your stay by a further 30 days when inside the country for an additional cost of between US$30-50.

Can You Enter Cambodia As A Tourist If You Are Not Fully Vaccinated?

Yes, you can visit Cambodia for tourism purposes even if you are not fully vaccinated against Covid-19. However, you will be required to:

  • quarantine for 14 days upon your arrival into the country – with the location designated by the Cambodian Ministry of Health
  • undergo a Covid-19 PCR test on day 13 of your quarantine.

Individuals that have tested positive for Covid-19 – in the previous 12 months – are unable to use a proof of recovery certificate to enter Cambodia, and will therefore need to follow the entry requirements based on whether they are fully vaccinated or not.

Other Southeast Asian Nations That Have Recently Eased Their Entry Requirements

Cambodia is not the only nation in the region of Southeast Asia to have eased its entry requirements for travelers – with Vietnam also announcing this week (15 March) that they no longer require visitors to show proof of vaccination in order to enter the country.

Cambodia requires fully vaccinated traveller's only. It's laughable as that country is a mess anyway. They shouldn't require anything.

Out of curiosity, how many people can a "fully vaccinated" carrier infect in 14 days? I suppose though, as long as its not Pol Pot is it that bad?

Does “fully vaccinated” mean 2 or 3 doses for the Pfizer shot?

@Kashlee Kucheran, I know you guys are busy with constant research but can we get some updated entry info on Cambodia? None of the articles have been updated for a while and entry rules have changed. My biggest concern is how strict are they on giving tests on arrival. Thank you!

@Codrin, I went to Cambodia in January with a 2 dose (no booster) certificate that was 10 months old at the time and had no issues getting into Cambodia.

We are having trouble finding any clear information on if they want a booster to be considered 'fully vaccinated' - with the info we are finding, it doesn't look like it. However, we are currently digging deeper on this
