You can have multiple wills. Having one for each country you have assets in will make it easier for the various executors to get probate. Just make sure each will states that it covers only assets for that particular country.

I need to make a will in Cambodia so the money in Cambodia banks can be passed on to my Australian kids how do I do it
Also read if I die in Cambodia my body needs to be relocating to Australia if this is true how can I get this changed
,I'd prefer to be cremated and let the kids decide what to do with the Ashes
PS Australia wills only cover assets in Australia

Does a person in Cambodia need to have a will in Cambodia?

If a person dies in Cambodia, but holds passport from another country, do they need a will in that other country?

What about if they are between countries, having moved around a lot, but die in Cambodia.... What should they be doing about a will?
Where should the original copy reside? Can they choose to have it reside in a country that is not where they hold a passport and is not Cambodia?

Does any of that make sense? (Edited for typo)
Violet, you need to set up a will in any country that you live in or at least an official letter, this is to simplify the distribution of your asset's in that country if you pass away. Obviously if you move to another country you can make the will null and void.
You do need to set up a Will in your home country and state on it that it supersedes any previous Wills, i.e Your last Will and Testament. Try to keep this one updated.
Apart from lodging the paperwork with a local lawyer, I would recommend that originals are placed with your solicitor/lawyer in your home country.
Good luck
