The number of international tourists has seen a sharp increase by 191 percent to 241,485 in the January-April period this year, a positive sign for the tourism recovery since Cambodia announced to fully reopen the country in November last year.

Chinese tourists ranked third with15,403, while the American tourists increased to 13,278.

Cambodia has relaxed entry rules to facilitate the travel and boost tourism, investment and trade since Mar. 17, 2022.

Fully vaccinated arrivals are not subject to any quarantine, but those who have not fully been inoculated must be in a 7-day quarantine at the location designated by the Ministry of Health or competent authorities.

Meanwhile, the Cambodian outbound tourists were recorded at 54.933, up 688 percent compared to the same period in 2021.

Cambodia’s high vaccination rate allowed the country to fully resume its socio-economic activities.
