Four Nigerian nationals were on Monday deported for not having passports or valid documents to stay or work in the kingdom.
 
General Sok Phal, director-general of the Interior Ministry’s Immigration Department, said the deportees were among 15 Nigerians being detained by immigration services.
 
“We deported four Nigerians to their country by air,” he said, adding that all had crossed into Cambodia illegally through the Vietnam border.
 
“So far of this year, more than 30 Nigerian nationals have been deported for not having passports or valid documents to stay or work in Cambodia,” Gen Phal said.
 
The government’s crackdown against illegal foreign immigrants resulted in 3,509 people being deported and barred permanently from the country last year. They comprised 63 nationalities but the vast majority – 2,570 – were Vietnamese.
 
Since April 2014, a total of 11,661 immigrants from 72 countries have been deported and barred permanently from the kingdom, 9,927 of them from Vietnam.
