The initial impact of COVID-19 in Cambodia began in mid-March when the country closed its waterways and introduced restrictions on travellers from Italy, Germany, the US, France, Spain and Iran. Major business events that were set to take place between March and August were either postponed or entirely cancelled, greatly impacting business arrivals.
Cambodia did not impose a national COVID-19 lockdown, instead it introduced some movement restrictions to curtail the spread of the disease. The country closed its waterways on 13 March and then, a day later, introduced restrictions on travellers entering the country from Italy, Germany, the US, France, Spain and Iran.
COVID-19 had a severe impact on flights in Cambodia, impacting all major carriers. Cambodia Airways was forced to significantly reduce its flights across Asia.
Online travel intermediaries have a negligible presence in Cambodia, with COVID-19 further reducing the scope for online intermediaries to emerge in 2020. Internet penetration and financial services industries remain underdeveloped in the country meaning that online payment methods remain limited as well.
Travel in Cambodia is expected to be severely impacted by COVID-19 in 2020 and beyond, although the government’s proactive measures and relief programmes should soften the negative impact. Furthermore, the country has effectively prevented the spread of the pandemic in 2020 with strict biosecurity measures, which will position Cambodia as a safe place to travel post-pandemic.
