Foreign Visitors to Be Charged for Covid-19 Testing, Quarantine Fees

Foreign travelers may be required to pay more than $1,000 for Covid-19 testing, treatment and quarantine fees upon arriving in Cambodia, a departure from Prime Minister Hun Sen’s earlier vow to treat foreigners infected with the virus for free in state health facilities.

The price list, released by the Finance Ministry on Monday, came at the request of the Health Ministry, which late last month mandated that any foreigner or Cambodian entering the country must be tested for the virus, and self-isolate or quarantine for 14 days, depending on the results.

As the spread of Covid-19 accelerated in late March, Hun Sen announced that anyone who was diagnosed with the respiratory illness in Cambodia would receive free health care in state facilities.
