Ministry ‘must stop issuing permanent residency certificates for immigrants’

"The Ministry of Interior has confirmed that the deadline has passed for foreign nationals to apply for permanent residency."


Mech Dara | Publication 05 July 2019

"The General Department of Immigration said in February it was working to revoke foreigners’ irregular documentation before June 30, after which anyone found to be breaking the law faces imprisonment or deportation."

"The Ministry of Interior said it had revoked 36,094 irregular documents from 19,395 immigrant families from nine countries as of May 31, with Vietnamese nationals accounting for 90 per cent of cases."

".... Cambodians who have a foreign spouse have a right to all administrative documents like everyone else, while the foreign spouses can be granted birth certificates for their children, but it must state their nationality."

“The local authority can issue documents such as birth certificates to foreigners, but it must state the nationality of that foreigner."

“When the child is four or five years old, he or she needs to enrol at school. Without a registered document, they won’t be able to enrol at school,” he said.

I suspect it is linked to this:
General Sok Phal, director-general of the General Department of Immigration, said authorities had found more than 70,000 foreigners, mostly Vietnamese nationals, holding improperly issued documents during a recent crackdown. Mr Phal said that five nationalities make up the 70,000, including Vietnamese, Lao, Chinese, Thai, and Bangladeshi.

He added that the holders of such documents will be deported in the future. “We will not kill them like the Lon Nol or Pol Pot regime,” said Mr Phal...
