$3000 deposit + everything else

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Thanks Doc!

I was going to search for your post as i remembered it well. So I will get a receipt.

The Canadia bank asked for that receipt and they wont pay out before day 13 (?) or 14. Older post had stated something else. They also claimed that only the main branch on Monivong would pay out.

When I pointed out that I could do my 2nd test in Siem Reap they had a major problem. After some emailing they now seem to be willing to pay out in Siem Reap but would charge a 'service fee' - the amount yet to be determined. I better avoid that.

Testing: I was contemplating going to that health center south of the city as I am fearing that a whole mob will decent on the hospital following the holiday. I saw one post somewhere online but nothing recent.

Perhaps a suggesting for the mods: Would it be a good idea to have a locked thread for posts like the one on the hospital so that they don't fade away? Factual info is critical and going through pages and pages of opinion posts is no fun even when you know that somewhere there is that precious info.
I don't recall anything on the paperwork received at the KSF Hospital testing station which informed me where to collect the certificate.

They charge you for it, but as I got my money back without the certificate (albeit from CAB) I never had to find out how to get it. I assume you just go back to the testing station and show your receipt and the will issue you one (or maybe arrest you and throw you into quarantine if you tested positive).

I know of people that got paid out by CAB without even taking the second test. I think the advice for all newcomers should be to make their deposit with CAB as they seem easier to deal with.

Keep us posted how you get on, it might be worth a separate thread about who had problems and with what bank.

So the KSF Hospital charges you for a certificate, even if you dont want one? Can you refuse (after all that test is to paid in cash and charged to the deposit)?

I really dont need that piece of paper unless the bank makes trouble.

Did anyone use the Chak Angre Health Center?

I used Chak Angre Health Centre for 2nd test day 13, no charge for the test, and they do not issue test results or medical certificate, far less people go there for testing so very quick process. Testing starts at 1000hrs.

@PSD-Kiwi
No charge for the test? How did you pay for it? I thought I had to pay 100 USD cash. Does that mean it will be charged to my deposit?

Sorry if I did not fully understand your post. Just trying to navigate my way.

Do they provide some paper that the test was done if the bank asks for it (before refunding the unused amount)?

No. The banks have access to a Ministry of Health database, there is no need for any documentation from the clinic to receive the refund.
