The Cambodian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur has told Cambodian citizens in Malaysia, including 143 people who have been trying to return home since last month, to attain documents certifying they are free of Covid-19 if they wish to be allowed back in the country. But some say they cannot afford to pay for the health reports.
In a notice dated Thursday, the embassy said Cambodians needed to acquire a health certificate from Malaysian authorities within 72 hours from their departure, in line with entry health requirements announced by the Cambodian government on Wednesday.
All arriving Cambodian and foreign nationals are required to produce a health report certifying that they have not tested positive for Covid-19 within a 72-hour period, and foreigners must provide proof of health insurance worth at least $50,000, a Health Ministry notice said.
