Phnom Penh (VNA) – Cambodia will allow Thais and foreign travellers in Thailand to fly into the country without quarantine, Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen has said.

In a voice recording shared on a government Telegram group, Hun Sen instructed the ministers of tourism and foreign affairs during a Council of Ministers meeting on October 22, reported.

The Thai government on October 21 announced that vaccinated arrivals from 46 countries, including Cambodia, will not have to undergo quarantine starting November 1.

He added that flights should be reopened for passengers from Thailand, including those coming through the country as there has been a principle of one visa being usable in the two countries.

The PM also said that Cambodia would resume flights from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines in a bid towards reopening the country.

Currently, Cambodia only has passenger flights arriving from China, Singapore and the Republic of Korea./.
