Cambodia Temporarily Bans Travel from 10 African Countries over Omicron Concerns

Cambodia has decided to impose temporary travel ban on passengers coming from or transiting through 10 African countries following the outbreak of Omicron COVID-19 variant.

The travel restrictions were announced in a press release of the Ministry of Health made public last night.

Those who have travel history to those 10 countries in the past three weeks are also banned from entering Cambodia even by air or land or waterway.

The ten African countries are Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Angola, and Zambia.

The new measure will take effect 48 hours after the issuance of this press release.

Amid the world’s concerns over the Omicron variant, Cambodia’s Ministry of Health has recently reminded the citizens of strict application of the health safety rules, particularly the Three Dos, Three Don’t, and the necessity of vaccination against the pandemic.
