Cambodia Slashed PCR COVID-19 Test Fee To 50 USD For Outbound Travellers

Cambodia, yesterday, decided to lower the fee for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test, with a certificate, to 50 U.S. dollars, from the current 130 dollars for outbound travellers, Health Minister, Mam Bunheng, said.

For all authorised COVID-19-testing laboratories in the country, the new price for a PCR test with a result certificate, for outbound Cambodians and foreigners, who may need it, is set at 50 U.S. dollars, Mam said in a statement.

“The new price will take effect from today, Feb 18, 2023, onwards,” he added.

The minister said, the PCR test will be made at the request of outbound travellers only, as the nation does not require any travellers to undergo either a rapid antigen test or a PCR test.

A Ministry of Health’s latest report showed that, to date, Cambodia has inoculated 14.63 million people, 91.4 percent of its 16 million population, with two required COVID-19 vaccine doses.
