COVID-19: Cambodia Reopens For Foreign Visitors With Insane Fees Policy Entry Requirements

In fighting with COVID-19 and tourism, Cambodia is imposing strict financial requirements for all foreign visitors entry to the Kingdom. The Ministry of Health has issued various charge fees such as COVID-19 test, quarantine, treatment services including transportation, meals and lodging fees that each foreign visitor must pay as a deposit upon arrival at the port of entry in order to enter Cambodia. 

This is by far one of the craziest entry requirements that I have ever seen since the pandemic of the Coronavirus. The said entry requirement takes effect since June 11, 2020 and has no end date yet at this point.

Cambodia COVID-19 Pricing Policy For Foreign Visitors Entering the Kingdom

In order to enter Cambodia starting June 11, 2020 - All foreign nationals visiting the Kingdom during the COVID-19 outbreak must be aware of the following fees upon arrival at the port of entry.

Health Insurance & Deposit

  • Upon arrival to Cambodia, all foreign visitors must show their health insurance with the minimum coverage of $50,000 USD.
  • Make deposit by cash or credit card of $3,000 USD with designated banks at the point of entry.

The deposit will be deducted for payment and services during the implementation of this policy by the Ministry of Health. All prices are in US Dollars.

You are required to take COVID-19 test upon arrival in Cambodia. While waiting for the result of your test, the following payment fees apply:

  • Transpiration from airport to designed hotel or quarantine centers - $5/person one-way.
  • COVID-19 Test (Collection and sending specimen, lab and result) - $100/time per person.
  • Designated hotels and quarantine centers - $30/day per person. 
  • Three times meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) - $30/day per person.

If your flight or the mean of your transport into Cambodia has a positive COVID-19 passenger, you are required for the following payment fees for the 14-day quarantine at designed hotels or quarantine centers:

  • Transport - $5/person one-way.
  • Designated hotels and quarantine centers - $30/day per person. 
  • COVID-19 Test (Collection and sending specimen, lab and result) - $100/time per person.
  • 3 times meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) - $30/day per person.
  • Laundry and cleaning services - $15/day per person.
  • Medical services (3 health staff for period of quarantine in each center) - $6/day per person.
  • Security services (2 persons) - $3/day per person. 

Payment fees for consultation and treatment of positive COVID-19 patient in public hospitals:

  • Transpiration from airport to designed hotel or quarantine centers - $5/person one-way.
  • COVID-19 test (4 times minimum) - $100/time per person.
  • Room charge in hospital - $30/day per person.
  • Treatment fee including medicines - Max $150/day per person.
  • 3 times meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) - $30/day per person.
  • Laundry service - $15/day per person.
  • Emergency - Follow the existing fee tariff of hospital. 
  • Consultation and treatment of existing chronic diseases of COVID-19 patient - Follow the existing fee tariff of hospital. 
  • Funeral - $1500/person. 

Health Certificate Issuance Fees for COVID-19:

  • COVID-19 test - $100/time per person.
  • Issue health Certificate - $30/time per person. 

Conclusion

As you see, these charge fees amidst the COVID-19 for foreign nationals arriving in Cambodia is insane. Cambodia has expressed interest in having direct flight between United States and Cambodia in order to boost the country's economy and tourism, but these strict financial fees requirement during the outbreak of the COVID-19 traveling will discourage foreign travelers to go and visit the Kingdom. If you have travel plans to Cambodia, I'd suggest that you pause your trip for awhile until you know when this regulation is lifted or when it is safe to travel again.
