Cambodia scraps vaccination and insurance requirements for travellers

Quarantine-free trips to Cambodia no longer require vaccination or travel insurance, with only a $5 rapid on-arrival antigen test for unvaccinated travellers.

Back in March this year, Cambodia became the first country in South East Asia to remove all pre-departure and on-arrival testing requirements for fully vaccinated international travellers, in an attempt to boost visitor arrivals.


This meant no more expensive PCR test within 72 hours of your departing flight to the country, nor any requirement to undergo a free rapid antigen test on arrival, provided you could show that you had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and held travel insurance with a minimum medical coverage of US$50,000.

At the time, this made Cambodia by far the simplest of Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lanes, but since then many countries in the region (including Singapore itself) have significantly relaxed their entry requirements and processes.

Vaccination is no longer required

Since 11th July 2022, Cambodia has removed its requirement for visitors to be fully vaccinated in order to travel to the country quarantine-free.

Fully vaccinated travellers can enter as normal (pre-COVID), by showing proof of a primary vaccination course completed at least 14 days prior to arrival. A booster dose is not required.

Unvaccinated travellers must take a rapid antigen test (ART) on arrival at a cost of US$5, and are free to continue their travels throughout Cambodia after returning a negative result.


If the on-arrival test result is positive and you have no symptoms or mild symptoms, you will be able to isolate at home or in any other accommodation. If you have severe symptoms you’ll need to isolate at a designated state COVID-19 treatment centre.

You’ll have to cover any treatment and accommodation costs yourself in either case.
