Every day, a couple of hundred passengers disembark at Phnom Penh airport on the few airline services that continue to fly to Cambodia.
Covid-19 measures are strict at Cambodia’s airports. To gain access to the country travellers need to present a health certificate issued within 72-hours of travel that confirms the traveller is Covid-19 free and they must show health and immigration officials proof of medical insurance cover valued at USD50,000.
But that is just the beginning of the process that transfers passengers to a holding centre where they are PCR swab tested for Covid-19. The results take up to 24 hours. If all the passengers test negative, they are free to go, but they must self isolate at home or at a hotel for 14 days at their own expense.
