CAMBODIA: Mandatory On-Site Inspections Introduced for Employers of Overseas Staff
All businesses employing overseas workers are to be subject to on-site inspections by officials from the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of the Interior. As part of these mandatory inspections, employers will be obliged to produce valid work permits and visas for all of their non-Cambodian personnel, while also demonstrating their compliance with all of the country’s labour and immigration requirements. Any business found to be in breach of said requirements may face a statutory fine, while illicit workers may be deported or imprisoned.
As yet, no date has been announced for the commencement of the on-site visit programme.
