SIEM REAP: Since 1 September 2022, Angkor Enterprise has allowed foreigners living in Cambodia for at least two years to receive a yearly free temple pass.
During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in Cambodia, Angkor Enterprise allowed foreigners to apply for a yearly membership pass which was roughly US $200 a year. However, from 1 September 2022 onwards, foreigners who have lived in Cambodia for at least two years can now apply for a yearly free Angkor Wat pass.
EAC News reporter, Anthony Ellis, applied for his pass in Siem Reap at the beginning of September and received it about a week later. He confirmed with the ticket office that while a single pass gives free entrance for a year, it can be renewed and is thus unlimited.
Foreigners living anywhere in Cambodia can apply for their free pass either in person at the Angkor ticket office in Siem Reap, or online through spass.angkorenterprise.gov.kh.
The ticket office advises foreigners to print and cut the pass out and have it laminated so they can carry it with them when visiting the temples every time.
