The remainder of the deposit will be returned if the passenger and the rest of the people on their flight have negative test results

Most people report getting almost all of the money back.

 

The difficulty will arise if someone on your flight tests positive. In that case you have to pay for 14 days supervised quarantine which will make a sizable dent in your deposit.

 

And of course no way to predict.

Sorry for that amount of money and having lived in LOS over a decade I would not part with that kind of $$$

 

Or any nearby country before you say its Camb.

Has to be a not so subtle way of saying to prospective tourists that they are not wanted, IMO.

Assuming Cambodia is equivalent to LOS, cost of room with ensuite in LOS is 1,000 baht or less, cost of food per day is 300 baht. 1,300 X 14 is 18,200 by my calculation. Hardly US$2,000.

Those are not the costs of ASQ in LOS. You don't just stay in any hotel and eat regular food. You go into an approved private quarantine facility with meals provided. In  LOS costs start at about 36,000 and go over 100,000 baht depending on choice of facility. I don't know the Cambodia costs.

 

The funds also include 2 COVID tests and in case either is positive, any amount for hospitalization not covered by your mandatory insurance.

 

Until recently the required deposit was $3,000, they just lowered it to $2,000.

 

Aside form covering costs of tests, quarantine etc , a purpose of the deposit is to ensure that people allowed to quarantine at home still show up for the day 13/14 repeat COVUD test without the government having to chase them down. You can't get your deposit back until you have had that second test and it was negative.

Tourism is altogether banned, no tourist visas being issued. This has nothing to do with tourism.

So tourists still can’t go right?

 

Correct.

 

I doubt many would want to  in any case given the 14 day quarantine (and in not a few cases, further quarantine upon return to their home country.)

 

This is for people who live in Cambodia: people working there. people with businesses there, retirees who have made it their home etc.
