The Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia has called on international tourists not to cancel trips to Cambodia, but urged them to adhere to several dos and don’ts when arriving in the Kingdom during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ministry released an eight-point instruction manual on Wednesday published in Khmer, English, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and French.

The Ministry also urged tourists to follow the government’s rules, especially those returning from Covid-19 infected areas. All foreign tourists must have adequate medical insurance to travel to Cambodia during this period. While visiting, they must maintain good hygiene practices by washing their hands thoroughly with soap or hand sanitiser.

Tourists should also not forget to cover their mouth and nose with tissues or their sleeves when coughing or sneezing. The ministry encouraged tourists to share their positive experiences in Cambodia on social media and to remain calm, cautious and not panic.

Last week, the ministry reported that Cambodia had lost about $5 billion in tourism revenue due to the Covid-19 crisis. It reiterated that Cambodia was a safe destination as the government was working to improve its tourism sector in terms of service and quality. There are business tourists, investors, and foreign tourists staying in Cambodia.

The Ministry of Tourism is also preparing a 15-year master plan for tourism development in Siem Reap province to make it more attractive for locals. The ministry predicts that by 2035, international tourism will bring in $4.8 million and domestic tourism will reach $1.3 million.
