Covid-19 in Cambodia: Travel Updates & Reopening Status


The Ministry of Health permits foreign nationals who enter Cambodia and are found to be positive to self-isolate at hotels, a residence prepared by their embassy, or other settings, with no enforced hospitalization.

The Ministry of Health allows foreign visitors who enter Cambodia and are tested to be positive with Covid-19 to self-isolate in hotels, embassy-provided residences, or other locations, with no compulsory hospitalization.

“All patients are now free to choose a suitable place to quarantine, and should only seek treatment at state hospitals if they cannot find an appropriate location.” the representative said.


Starting from January 14, 2022, Cambodia began to inoculate the fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to priority groups in Phnom Penh due to the spread of the Omicron variant within the community.


Fearing widespread transmission of the novel Covid-19 variant Omicron, Cambodian border provincial officials are considering stricter restrictions for crossing migrant laborers, such as enforced quarantine and PCR testing.


Because of the high vaccination rate, the Ministry of Health spokesman told Khmer Times on 30/12/2021 that the Kingdom has nearly reached the herd immunity goal. So, despite detecting almost 50 cases of the Omicron variant so far, the government will not impose a lockdown or work from home precaution like in neighboring Thailand.
