Detailed Tourist Information

All travelers must present a valid visa issued by a Cambodian Embassy or Consulate.  The Government of Cambodia has suspended the e-visa and visa-on-arrival programs until further notice.  In addition, we understand Cambodian Embassies will only accept applications for diplomatic, official, and “sponsored” business-linked visas, and will not issue tourist or other visas to enter Cambodia at this time.

Cambodian authorities have also introduced the following requirements for prevention, containment, and response to the spread of COVID-19 for all travelers entering Cambodia by air, land, and water.  All arriving foreigners must:

Fully abide by locally enforced quarantine measures for 14 days at a hotel designated by the Government of Cambodia.

Pay a deposit of $2,000 upon arrival at airports for mandatory COVID-19 testing and potential treatment services.  The money will be used to pay for an accommodation during the quarantine, testing and transportation from an airport to a hotel.

Possess a COVID-19 negative medical certificate issued no more than 72 hours prior to the date of arrival (see below).
Purchase a local health insurance package for COVID-19 treatment from Forte Insurance Company. The cost is $90 for a $50,000 policy valid for 20 days.
Undergo a COVID-19 test upon arrival and wait in official facilities/designated hotels to receive laboratory results.  Health authorities will then oversee another COVID-19 test on the 13th day of quarantine.

Please monitor official Cambodian government sources for the latest fee schedule for these testing and treatment services.
