BIGGEST NIGERIAN BUST YET! Police Arrest 45 Nigerians Who Will Be Deported for Living in Cambodia Illegally!

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

In retrospect, perhaps you should have.
Probably. However I had one passport stolen in 2007, and if it happens more than twice in a decade it's at my country's MOFA discretion as to whether they will issue another.

Plus it was likely I'd find it at any time. Turned out it was inside a picture frame. Great drunk security precautions :crazy:

And yes, I believe it's written somewhere that tourists in Cambodia should carry passports at all time.


I certainly never have, and never will.

^^ With any luck LTO or John Bingham may be along soon and give their version of the official line.

My understanding has always been that you do NOT need to carry your passport with you at all times.
That said, it has always been advisable to carry a photocopy of your passport just in case.
- You are involved in an accident, you can be quickly ID'd.
- Police, of any kind, want to see your docs for whatever reason.
- Passport is stolen, you still have a copy.
. . . etc.

When I visit the beach and check-in to a hotel, I give my phone number as my ID. Never been a problem. However, I am travelling with KH wife and kids, so your mileage may invariably vary.
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

We carry a reduced and laminated photocopy of our passport face page/current visa with us. Saves any hassle. Same risk as the copies of our drivers licenses, some truly determined cop might insist a copy is not good enough, but so far so good.

I don't know if it is the law to carry your passport all the time. In Thailand it is. Here, not sure. I never carry my passport here, even when I'm traveling around the provinces, though i keep a photocopy in my wallet. I have a few Cambodian IDs which seem to work well enough in the few situations I need an ID here.

I know the word is out in the Vietnamese community here that if you have proper ID (e.g. Vietnamese passport, KH family book, work permit, work ID, etc) it is advisable to carry it or a copy, especially after the raids on Vietnamese areas much like the one on these Nigerians, where thet scoop up everybody without ID.

Interesting thought. I has been suggested that now that the police have consolidated certain markets for themselves, they are just eliminating the the competition.
