Leading tourism players in Cambodia are urging a drastic rethink on a snap decision made to start re-issuing e-visas to vaccinated tourists with a mandatory seven-day quarantine.
On October 18, Cambodia’s entry restrictions were loosened with the announcement that quarantine will be slashed from 14 days to seven for vaccinated Cambodians and foreign business visa holders. This has been further reduced to three days for visiting business travellers and investors with an invitation letter.
However, an announcement in local media on Tuesday said the government’s e-visa portal is now re-issuing visas for vaccinated tourists. Travellers will have to undergo a seven-day quarantine and pay US$1,000 to cover quarantine costs, PCR tests and other requirements, with excess refunded at the end of isolation.
