Siem Reap International Airport is ready to welcome international visitors
The Siem Reap International Airport is ready to welcome international visitors who have been vaccinated.
Mr. Bun Ratha, Manager of Siem Reap International Airport, confirmed his readiness in a meeting to discuss the implementation of standard operating procedures (SOP) to welcome vaccinated tourists on Nov. 24.
He stated that ensuring the safety of tourists is important not only for improving hospitality services but also for maintaining the nation’s value and honor.
Cambodia has identified a number of countries around the world, particularly those in the ASEAN region, to visit the Kingdom without a visa (VISA), as part of the Royal Government of Cambodia’s open skies policy.
The meeting focused on operational procedures to ensure effective prevention of the Covid-19 pandemic, based on an agreement between the health and tourism ministers, such as the control of vaccination cards, PCR test certificates (72 hours before arrival), and rapid tests upon arrival at the airport.
Cambodia is ready to accommodate vaccinated international tourists
Cambodia is ready to accommodate vaccinated international tourists following the success of the Water Festival, according to the Minister of Tourism.
Based on the successful control of tourist mobility over the Water Festival holiday over the last three days, Cambodia is ready to welcome foreign tourists who are completely vaccinated against COVID-19.
H.E. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism, made the remarks, emphasizing that this is a critical requirement for safely welcoming vaccinated overseas tourists.
Tourist attitudes have shifted, according to H.E. Minister. Instead of carrying food with them as in previous vacations, they have begun to employ connected services of local companies such as hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants.
These indicators indicate a return to normalcy, and consequently the restart of economic activity, particularly for enterprises whose operations had been postponed.
H.E. Thong Khon also stated that the municipal and provincial administrations, as well as tourism departments, had promoted the use of Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for tourism, as well as health safety rules against COVID-19, and that tourists had enjoyed their vacations after being fully vaccinated.
He emphasized the ministry’s commitment to strengthening tourist safety standards, SOP, and other required steps to boost the tourism sector in the New Normal.
Angkor Wat International Half Marathon
As an example! The Angkor Wat International Half Marathon has been rescheduled for January
The 26th Angkor Wat International Half Marathon has been rescheduled for January 2022.
The sport event, which was originally scheduled for December 19, 2021, has been moved to Sunday, January 2, 2022, according to a recent announcement from the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC).
The Ministry of Health must implement safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, according to the report.
Only local and international runners who have received the basic doses of COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to compete.
The Angkor Wat International Half Marathon drew over 10,000 national and international runners from a variety of countries in 2019, but due to COVID-19, the sport event was canceled in 2020.
Cambodia has hosted the challenge since 1996, not only to promote sports and good health, but also to raise funds for humanitarian projects.
