With countries slowly reopening their borders, now is the time to travel. It is time to get out and share a smile with the locals in other countries.
Traveling can still be risky because COVID-19 is still around, but anything is manageable if you are responsible, follow local safety measures, and cover yourself with great COVID insurance.
COVID insurance for Cambodian Travelers
As Thailand eases its travel restrictions, Cambodian citizens can now travel to Thailand without needing to quarantine on arrival. Cambodia has been classified as a low-risk country by Thailand and this makes travel a lot easier.
To be granted entry to Thailand, travelers now only need to provide a few documents. If you are vaccinated, you need:
- A Thailand Pass
- A vaccination certificate
- Travel insurance that includes COVID-19 cover
All Cambodian travelers must provide proof of a valid insurance policy to enter Thailand. It may be called Travel insurance, Medical insurance, or Health insurance, but the important thing is that it comes with COVID-19 coverage.
COVID insurance is required for Cambodian travelers to make sure they are covered for medical and related expenses in the event they are diagnosed with COVID-19 while in the country. Foreigners are not covered by the Thai Government if they need medical assistance, so it is important they protect themselves.
Having this insurance in place gives you a sense of security and allows you to budget for enjoyment instead of worrying about potential medical emergencies.
