Before departure, you should check whether the insurance also covers medical emergencies. It is important to read and check all the details of the health and travel insurance. Treatment not covered by insurance can be very expensive and is at the expense of the person affected.

No consular services are provided in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
In cases of a damaged, lost, stolen or expired passport, Bulgarian citizens can apply for an Emergency Travel Document (ETD) at an embassy of an EU Member State in Phnom Penh. The ETD is issued only for the purpose of a single trip to Bulgaria or the country of permanent residence.
Certifications and legalizations:
In order to be valid in the Republic of Bulgaria and to be able to serve before the Bulgarian institutions all documents issued by the authorities in Cambodia to Bulgarian citizens must bear the stamp of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Then, they need to be certified by the Embassy of Cambodia in Moscow. The signature and certifications of the Embassy of Cambodia in Moscow are certified by the Consular Office of the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in the Russian capital. Once the documents have been so prepared, they must be translated into Bulgarian by an authorized company in Bulgaria and certified by the Department of Certifications and Legalizations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.
