Cambodia is on a list of 46 countries, from where any vaccinated national wanting to enter Thailand for economic or other purpose, is allowed to enter.

In a note signed by the Operation Centre for Measures on the Entry into and Departure from the Kingdom, and Protection of Thai Nationals Abroad on October 21, 40 countries have been listed, of which Cambodia is one.

This makes Thailand the first country in the Asean region to permit Cambodians to enter Thailand.

Earlier, Thai prime minister Prayut Chan-o-cha says Thailand will open the country to visitors from 46 countries instead of only 10 Covid-19 low-risk countries announced earlier, starting from November 1.

“If we wait until everything is fully ready, we’ll be too late. Besides, tourists may choose to go elsewhere,” read the post.

He added that he was aware the acceleration brought with it the risk of more local infections.

“But this is a risk we must take. I think, like other countries, Thailand is now better equipped to deal with the risk. And we need to learn to live with it.”

Visitors from the 46 countries, described as the first low-risk group, may enter Thailand by air without quarantine, provided they have been fully vaccinated and have evidence of pre-flight negative test results. They must also agree to take another test upon arrival.
