Cambodians Allowed to Return Home Without Covid-19-Free Certificates

Cambodian citizens will be allowed to enter the country without a health certificate declaring them free of Covid-19, which is required for arriving foreign nationals, Prime Minister Hun Sen announced on Wednesday.

The move follows news reports, including from VOD, of a number of Cambodians stranded in international airports in recent weeks, with some saying they did not have the money or necessary documents to return home.

Now, returning Cambodians will face fewer requirements, but like foreigners they will still need to provide a sample for coronavirus testing upon entering the country, and, if they test negative initially, they will need to self-isolate for 14 days, the premier said in a Facebook post.
