Tourists to Cambodia asked to pay £2,400 ‘coronavirus deposit’, including fee for own cremation

If you had hoped to visit Cambodia this year, you may want to think again as the Foreign Office (FCO) has revealed it has asked tourists to pay a £2,400 ‘coronavirus deposit’ on arrival.

In an update to the FCO’s travel advice page for Cambodia, it says visitors hoping to enter must get a visa before arrival, obtain a medical certificate stating you do not have coronavirus within 72 hours of arriving in the country and have proof of insurance that has a minimum of $50,000 (£39,729) medical cover.

All foreign travellers will also be required to pay a deposit of $3,000 (£2,400) for COVID-19 service charges at the airport on their arrival and only once deductions for the services have been made will the remainder of the deposit be returned.
