After as the coronavirus incidence rate has gone down in recent weeks, the Cambodian authorities have decided to ease the quarantine requirements for those entering the country. Quarantine for them will remain, but will be twice as short: seven days instead of fourteen.

The latest changes were announced about a month after another easing of pandemic-related restrictions on visitors from abroad, including the abolition of mandatory COVID-19 tests for vaccinated people.
And last month it was restored scheme for obtaining visas on arrival.
