Cambodia Announces Clampdown on Illegal Overseas Workers

Cambodia is looking to tighten up its regulation of overseas workers in the country, with new government guidelines emphasising that all such individuals need to be in possession of the appropriate work permits or work books before taking up employment. This requirement applies to all non-Cambodian nationals working in the country, including those employed by foreign-owned businesses or acting in a freelance capacity.

The new guidelines were jointly issued by Cambodia’s Ministry of Interior (MOL) and Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MLVT) and take immediate effect. In line with these requirements, businesses may be subject to government inspections. In the event of the failure to produce the appropriate paperwork during any such official visit, businesses may face fines, while any non-complying workers may be deported.
