More than 1,900 public and private institutions, restaurants, hotels and factories were registered to implement a QR Code “Stop COVID” to increase the efficiency and speed of prevention and control of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The Ministry of Health on Saturday announced the implementation of the QR Code.
The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications said yesterday 1,954 public and private institutions, restaurants, hotels and factories were registered to implement a QR Code.
The move was made in response to the February 20 Community Incident which as of yesterday has seen 47 foreign nationals tested positive for COVID-19.
It said that the large number of registrations in this short period of time showcased the public’s support and participation in protecting people’s health.
“This system will record the location of the person logged who had scanned the QR Code (a system that does not track or affect the privacy of the individual) and make it easier to find those involved or affected if that location is found to have COVID-19 infected guests or patrons,” it said.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that the E-Type Visa, aimed at short-term travellers to Cambodia, is now available online.
It said that the online service had been previously suspended, in the wake of restrictions imposed by the government due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Travellers had been required to apply directly for visas at Cambodian embassies or consulates worldwide.
It said that the travellers will be charged around $42 for processing the visas.
The E-Type Visa is a single entry visa and valid for 30 days. Once issued, it has a three-month validity.
