Lieutenant Auk Samnang, deputy director of nationality department of Ministry of Interior, confirmed that 11 foreigners became Cambodian following the principles and procedures of nationality law, following articles 11 and article 27 of the law on nationality for all foreigners.

Wow, that's all?

I wonder how many are Chinese? What is the vow, to immediately commence buying up land at extortionate prices?

Haha, no, that's not all that is required, they have to go through the application process. I guarantee all of these received their Citizenship via investment or donation.

By the looks of it, they're all Chinese. Every time I've been to the Department of Identification it is full of Chinese, all being handled by a Chinese speaking Khmer fixer.

AFAIK it's USD300,000 for the donation. The fixer gets $180,000.
