Travelling to Cambodia? You Need to Add Funeral Costs To Your Budget


In a recent announcement made by the State Secretariate of Civil Aviation (SSCA) of the Kingdom of Cambodia, anyone visiting the kingdom will need to deposit a $3000 to cover any possible COVID-19 related medical expenses they would incur during their stay.

The announcement came as a surprise as Cambodian government had earlier promissed to provide free treatment to travellers if they contract the covid-19 virus when within the country.

All travellers will also have to give a proof of health insurance covering them for $50,000 at least. A detailed breakdown of costs has been given in the latest notice, detailing how this money will be used if any traveller incurs COVID-19 related medical expenses

In case someone tests positive for COVID-19 upon landing in Cambodia, they will be charged a hospital room fee of $30 per day, and $150 for medication. It will be mandatory to take a minimum of four COVID-19 tests amounting to $400. To cover the worst-case scenario, $1500 will be set aside from the deposit to cover the funeral cost.
