Sihanoukville casinos given reopening green light

Home » Sihanoukville casinos given reopening green light

Casinos in Sihanoukville have been given the go-ahead to reopen by Cambodia’s health ministry as part of a phased reopening of the industry in the country and some are already back in business.



Casinos are being permitted to resume operations one province at a time to allow officials to monitor that Covid-19 is not being spread. The next province is expected to be allowed to open in September.

Two weeks ago, 21 of the casinos in the coastal town put in a request to open after Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted. QueenCo Casino resumed operations on August 6 after a Health Ministry check and installation of Covid-19 protocols.

Flight links with China are also resuming, though only a few planes are landing a day. Prior to the crisis 10 airlines operated out of Sihanoukville, flying to 18 Chinese cities.
