Cambodia has thrown up more obstacles to ensure foreigners don’t visit the country starting with a requirement that forces travellers to deposit USD3,000 with a bank at the point of entry to cover any medical and quarantine costs.
The deposit rule is written into a pricing list released by the country Minister of Health, who chairs the Ministerial Committee to Combat Covid-19. The latest ruling was dated 11 June.
All travellers excepting those on diplomatic or official government business must hand over the USD3,000 deposit either in cash or as a deduction from their credit cards. In addition, they must show to immigration officials proof of medical insurance for the value of USD50,000 and a health certificate that states they are free of Covbid-19 infection valid for up to 72 hours.
