Cambodia, others entry updates
Cambodia’s Ministry of Health has announced that fully vaccinated tourists will no longer be required to present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before arrival. According to The Phnom Penh Post a notice, signed by health minister Mam Bun Heng, also states that inbound passengers will also no longer need take a rapid antigen test upon arrival,
But visitors are required to show proof of vaccination on arrival and those who are not fully vaccinated are must still undergo 14 days quarantine.
In a bid to kick start the country’s battered tourism industry the issuing of Visa on Arrival for passengers arriving by land, sea or air is also set to resume.
Vietnam has reopened its borders and reinstated visa free entry for citizens of Russia, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Belarus for a maximum of 15 days stay. All that is required is that visitors show a negative rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arrival at their accommodation facilities. They also need to have medical insurance cover for Covid treatment worth at least $10,000 for the duration of their stay.
Malaysia will fully reopen its borders to vaccinated travellers from April 1. According to Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, “Citizens with valid travel documents can enter and leave the country as they did before the pandemic.”
Also starting from April 1, Thailand will no longer require a certificate of RT-PCR test issued 72 hours before departure but the test is still required on arrival and visitors must stay in their hotel for 24 hours or until the test result is confirmed. A self administered, negative rapid antigen test is also required on the fifth day.
