Despite the pandemic and its devastating impact on the travel industry Asean Angkor Guide (formerly Asean Angkor Guide) has managed to stay positive and await the reopening of tourism. We are now preparing to reopen our services towards the end of 2021 and remain optimistic for the future as travel restrictions and quarantine are eased and lifted.
This morning, the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia issued two notices for Reopening for Vaccinated Tourism as follows:
1-Notice on the Reopening for Vaccinated Tourism
2-Notice on Procedures for Reopening for Vaccinated Tourism
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 tourist resort 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. If the test result is negative, the visitors will 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:
- An authentic/legitimate 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,
- Flight 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.
International tourists coming under this program will be required to submit themselves to the 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.
