Where Can Americans Go in Asia?

*Editor’s Note: Each week, we’ll be covering regions and updating you on which countries are open to Americans for travel and what you need to know before you go. Check  PeterGreenberg.com  for all of the latest, weekly updates. This week, we look at Asia.

 

Cambodia:

U.S. citizens may enter. All travelers must present a valid visa issued by a Cambodian Embassy or Consulate. Visitors must also pay a $2,000 COVID-19 deposit at the airport for mandatory testing and potential treatment. Plus, a negative COVID-19 test result is required from no more than 72 hours prior to entry, and you must take a COVID-19 test upon arrival. On top of that, you must purchase a $90 local health insurance package for treatment. A positive test means an automatic, mandatory 14-day quarantine in a designated location. Travelers will receive another test on the 13th day. And a negative test still requires you to take a 14-day self isolation at home or lodging option.

 

Maldives:

It’s open for U.S. tourists, who must present a negative COVID-19 test from 72 hours (or less) prior to arrival. If you show symptoms at the airport, visitors will be required to take a COVID-19 test along with their entire travel group.

 

Uzbekistan:

U.S. citizens can enter Uzbekistan with a visa, and a negative COVID-19 test is required for entry within 72 hours of the initiation of entry. Health screenings will be conducted at airports and entry ports. American tourists are not required to have 14-day mandatory quarantine in Uzbekistan upon their arrival and can freely travel.

 

Philippines:

There is no entry without a Philippine visa, and no prior COVID-19 test is required but there is a mandatory test upon entry. The traveler will have to pay for this COVID-19 test, and there are also various health checks. You must book a hotel beforehand that has been accredited by tourism and health agencies and self-isolate there as you await your COVID-19 test results. It will take at least two days.

 

Thailand:

U.S. citizens must fill out a health declaration form and apply for an approved visa to Thailand. Travelers must quarantine in a state-approved facility for 14 days on arrival. The visa will be valid for a 90-day visit and can be extended twice for a maximum of just under nine months.
