Coronavirus (COVID-19) travel restrictions in Cambodia – updated 15 October, 2020

Travel to Cambodia

To travel to Cambodia, you will require a visa, and this must be arranged before arrival, as the Government has suspended the e-visa and visa-on-arrival programs.

Cambodian Embassies are only accepting applications for diplomatic, official, and sponsored business-linked visas, and are not issuing tourist or other visas to enter Cambodia. Contact your local Cambodian Embassy for more information.

  • Travelers who are eligible to enter (and have obtained a visa in advance) must provide a negative COVID-19 test result that is no older than 72 hours
  • Purchase medical insurance with minimum coverage of US $50,000
  • Travelers will be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, and must wait in accommodation until test results are returned
  • Anyone who tests positive will be quarantined for 14 days at designated facilities
  • Travelers who test negative must self-isolate at their own accommodation for 14 days.

Foreign travelers are required to deposit US $2,000 for COVID-19 service charges at the airport upon entry. Once deductions for services have been made, the remainder of the deposit will be returned.

Travel within Cambodia

Restrictions have been relaxed in a phased approach, and social distancing is recommended for all people in Cambodia. Keep an eye on local news, as restrictions may be imposed with little notice when cases of COVID-19 begin to rise.

Here are a few travel safety tips to consider when choosing a destination, hotel, low-risk activities, and how to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Check your government's travel advice before making any plans, and be prepared for potential delays due to the pandemic.
