This may be at a hotel (at your own expense) or at a government facility. The conditions at government facilities are very basic and it is not guaranteed that families will be kept together.

    Internal Restrictions:
    *Travel in Cambodia: There has been a community outbreak of COVID-19 since 20 February 2021. The Government of Cambodia has advised against travel between provinces inside Cambodia. Some provinces have introduced road blocks and entry restrictions. These are often not announced and procedures are not uniform. We recommend avoiding unnecessary travel around the country.
    The Governor of Phnom Penh has introduced a curfew in Phnom Penh between 8pm and 5am every day from 1 April 2021 to 14 April 2021. During the curfew, all business activities including food stalls and restaurants (including those attached to hotels) will be suspended. There are limited exceptions to the curfew including attending funeral ceremonies and medical emergencies. Food delivery services may still be available.
    You’re expected to wear a face covering when inside the airport and many airlines will ask for face coverings to be worn. While no penalties are currently being imposed by the Cambodian authorities for refusing to wear a face covering, our advice is to wear a face covering when requested to.
    *Accommodation: Hotel and private rental accommodation is available throughout Cambodia. Some hotels have closed and remain so, and we advise that you contact hotels directly when booking. The majority of hotels will ask to take your temperature on arrival and ask you to complete a declaration in relation to your recent travel history and whether you have any symptoms related to COVID-19.
    Some services and facilities in hotels may not be available e.g. leisure facilities.
    *Public places and services: Many public places and services such as gyms, casinos, karaoke rooms and nightclubs have been mandated to close or have closed due to a lack of custom. You should contact venues ahead of events.
    On 11 March the Government of Cambodia brought in a law on “Preventive Measures Against the Spread of COVID-19 and Other Severe and Dangerous Contagious Diseases”. The Government has also launched a map with venues to avoid. We strongly recommend that you wear masks, clean your hands and maintain social distancing in all public places.

  • Cambodia Cambodia requires COVID-19 test prior to travel
    Before even traveling to Cambodia, visitors need:

    A health certificate confirming that they’ve had a SARS-CoV-2 test less than 72 hours prior to departure
    $50,000 in health insurance coverage
    That’s fair enough.

    Cambodia’s requirements upon arrival
    Not only is extensive testing being done for visitors to Cambodia, but there will be lots of nickel-and-diming:

    Visitors will have to make a $3,000 deposit upon arrival in the event that medical treatment is needed
    Visitors to Cambodia will have to pay $5 to be taken by bus to a testing facility upon arrival
    Visitors will then have to pay $100 for the RT-PCR test
    Visitors will have to pay $30 to stay in the waiting area overnight, and will have to pay an additional $30 for three meals
    If all the results come back negative, everyone is free to leave
    However, if even one person on a flight tests positive:

    All passengers will be required to quarantine for 14 days in a government designated facility
    This will come at an all inclusive cost of $84 per day, so that will cost $1,176
    An additional swab test will be required for $100
    In the event of hospitalization, the cost will be $225 per day, plus up to an additional $400 for up to four swab tests
    If visitors need to be cremated, that will cost $1,500, though it’s not known if this includes the cost of an urn
